Thank you for all the donations for the “Lunches of Love” service project. Enough supplies were collected to create 300 bagged lunches! Thank you to Mrs. Morris for organizing and leading this effort. The Fourth graders will work next week to put the lunches together.
Thank you to Kalyn Gustafson for coordinating the auction project. Kalyn clearly put in a lot of thoughtful effort to be sure all students were able to participate. The final art piece is absolutely stunning!

Math Facts! Please be sure your student practices math facts for about 10 minutes daily. This can be done through Xtramath, flash cards or another parent choice method.
Hybrid learning is going well. Remind your student that when on zoom they must be on time for class. I am teaching the on campus and remote kids concurrently. If a student is late to the Zoom room, they may end up waiting to be let in. The remote schedule for the day is on the Google Classroom for remote learners so it is clear what to do. Students who are quarantined due to travel are expected to stay on-line with their purple/gold cohorts.
Writing: Compare and Contrast Essay. Focus on using fourth grade level word choice, grammar and editing skills. I prefer students do drafts in their writing notebook. Students who choose to type drafts and are in hybrid, will need to print their work progress for on campus workdays. This is a two week project.
Reading with Ms Halley: RL.4.6 Compare and contrast the point of view from which different stories are narrated, including the difference between first- and third-person narrations
