New Info and Reminders

Hi everyone!

I wanted to remind you of a few things, and also provide you with some new information regarding things that are happening in our school and our classroom.

  1. We are raising money for Tiger Trot, which will go towards getting Teasley a brand new turf field! Make sure to register your child at http://thegetmovincrew.com/ so that they can start receiving donations as soon as possible! Final donations are due by November 17th. The Tiger Trot run will be on Friday, November 10th during our specials time. As a class, we have raised $250 so far and that’s awesome! We are hoping for 100% class participation, so don’t forget to ask for those donations!
  2. If you plan on joining us for the Thanksgiving Luncheon, please make sure to let me know. We will provide the lunchroom staff with an official count of RSVPs to give them an idea of how much food needs to be prepared for the day.
  3. Remember to bring in your signed permission slips (dark green form) for our upcoming field trip, as well as the $10 payment. I will need these before the date of the trip (December 7th).
  4. NEW INFO! We are making 4th grade t-shirts! Students were given blue forms today with all of the information about the t-shirts. T-shirts are $6. The blue forms plus the $6 payment are all due by November 15th. Please get this in to me ASAP so we can order our amazing 4th grade t-shirts!
  5. This Friday is All Pro Dads. If you plan to attend, please show up before 7:35 AM. Anyone who arrives after the 7:35 AM cutoff will be encouraged to join us for the next All Pro Dads meeting. 🙂

That’s all for updates. Thank you!

  • $2: Light up emoji ring, glow in the dark glasses, glow in the dark headbands, triple glow bracelet, etc.
  • $1: finger lights, glow sticks

*supplies are limited


And finally, here is an update for this week!

Reading: This week we are looking at non-fiction text features (titles, headings, graphs, charts, table of contents, glossary, diagrams, maps, etc.). We will have a test on Friday.

Writing: We are continuing to work on Opinion Writing.

Social Studies: Our study on European Explorers continues! We will have a test on Friday. A study guide has been sent home with students to help them be fully prepared.

Math: In math, we are moving onto factor pairs, as well as prime and composite numbers. Here is an example: The factors for 12 include 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12. The number 12 has more than one pair of factors, so it is a composite number. No test this week. Please make sure that students are studying their facts each night (and please sign their practice logs). We will have drills each day and students are responsible for memorizing their facts on their own. Students who progress will receive a new set of flash cards from me to practice at home.

Spelling: Our spelling words this week are more words with the long i sound. Spelling packets were given to students, and they may also practice on my Spelling City page. We will have a test on Friday.

Please remember to turn in your field trip permission slips and payment. Also, if you did not attend conferences and received your child’s report card in an envelope, please make sure to return the signed envelope back to me as soon as possible.

Thank you all and have a wonderful week!

-Ms. Allison

Multiplication Practice and Drills

Dear Parents,

As many of you know, we have started our multiplication unit. The results of our first test have raised the concern that many students are still struggling with basic multiplication facts (a 3rd grade skill). Memorization of multiplication facts is imperative for success this quarter, as the multiplication tasks are going to become much more challenging. In order to combat this, we are going to begin having multiplication practice drills.

The children will be tested on all multiplication levels from x1 to x12. Please note that your child will be tested almost every day on their multiplication math facts. These drills will not be a grade. The speed at which your child progresses through the facts is up to him/her. Your child has one minute to complete 20 problems. He/she must get all 20 correct in order to move to the next level.

Starting Monday, October 23, practicing math facts is going to be a daily homework assignment. Please sign your child’s practice log to indicate that they are practicing each night. Logs will be checked daily. I will provide each student with a set of flashcards for each level that they are practicing for. Please help your child study his/her facts each night. Your child will be responsible to let you know what level he/she is on. For each new level they pass, they will receive a new set of flash cards to practice. If he/she pass their x1’s, they will get a set of x2’s. If they pass their x2’s, they will get a set of x3 flash cards to practice with. They will receive their new set of flash cards the day they pass their current level. Please keep all the cards in the baggie and send them with your child each day (they will be used during centers time throughout the year). The flash cards will be an invaluable tool for helping your child pass each level!

Towards the end of the quarter, I will host an ice cream party for the students who pass all the way to their 10’s. We will build ice cream sundae’s to celebrate all that we accomplished! The boys and girls who make it all the way to their x12’s will get both a sundae and an extra special privilege. Please help your child study their facts each night. Play games, race each other, and practice in the car. If you own a tablet, an iPad, computer, etc. there are many wonderful apps and sites your child can use to practice. The more at ease the children are with their facts, the better off they will be in math for the remainder of the year as well as the years following. Multiplication is MEMORIZATION!

Please use the first set of flashcards sent home with your child to help prepare your child for their first multiplication drill on Monday, October 23.

Thank you all so much for your continued support!

-Ms. Allison
