St. John XXIII 4A Website
-Morning work starts this week! It is assigned and given out on Mondays and is due on Thursday mornings. These practice pages are review of previously learned material and are entered in the gradebook as classwork assignments. Students are given time before school to work and may need addition time at home to finish.
4th Grade Spelling
On Thursday 8/16 the students will be given their first spelling packet and reading log. Both the packet and the log will be due the following Wednesday 8/22, the day of the spelling test. The students will have six days to complete the spelling packet and 80 minutes of reading time. They may spread the 80 minutes over the 6 day period in any way they wish; they do need to log their time though. We'll continue in this manner throughout the year.
Travel Journal, Social Studies
The children have been working on their Travel Journal. This is a journal that will be sent to a friend or relative by you, and then hopefully sent on around the United States by future reciepients. As the children finish up the journals this week I will be sending home an instruction sheet for you. The instructions will explain to you how the project works and the help that your child needs to get this started. I would encourage you to make the journal's first stop to a friend or relative that has the time to make a short entry and would be willing to help your student out. Please contact me if you have any questions.

We love celebrating birthdays! Due to our food allergies, we ask that you send non-food items on your child's special day. Some examples could be fun pencils, erasers, or items you might find in a goody bag.
Novel Study Books needed:
We will work on two different novel studies this year. I highly encourage parents to purchase these books in advance, they may need to be ordered. The titles are Number the Stars by Lois Lowry and By the Great Horn Spoon by Sid Fleischman.
