Grade 4A May Newsletter

language arts at a glance
Language Arts at a Glance
  • This month we have been focused on a novel study of Bridge to Terabithia.
  • Students have been completing many exercises about the novel.
  • We have also been working on comic books illustrating the Minotaur.
  • Students scored could have been better on a recent reading comprehension assessment of Jacques Cartier. I think reading an excerpt over more than once can help improve accuracy.
  • Signing the agenda daily will help ensure parent-teacher communication. I do write notes home, when students have not completed their work, and their are problems. Please, begin checking the agenda daily.

  • Students performed fairly well on their unit 4 test. Class average was 70 %. I think students could have done better had they been studying the practice test more.
  • Students should continue ask more questions and try to complete past exercises at home or search for grade 5 math concepts on iXl or Khan Academy. Grade 5 will be fast approaching and some students who are struggling with math need to practice more.
  • We should continue to strive to have full participation in the sample test provided on the class website. Too often similar questions on the tests are incorrect.
  • I encourage parents to check agendas daily, and to sign the agenda daily. It is a tool for me and you to communicate.
