Helping Your Student At Home

Resources students can use at home to help themselves are:

On week 2, regular homework will be assigned. This will include work to do in the homework folder including:

 

Math Pages: Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Please have your child return these pages daily to be corrected/reviewed in class

Also, please have your student study his/her X or division facts.

 

Vocabulary: For these 15 words, please write them 2 times in cursive for practice, and memorize the definitions of each.

 

Vocabulary Story/Questions: Every other week, students will read the story that includes the vocabulary words. When answering questions about the story, please help your child answer in a complete sentence using part of the question in the answer.

 

Reading: Read for 30 minutes from an AR book. Your child should aim to finish a book and take an AR test each week. If the book is level 4 or higher, this might take 2 weeks to complete and test on.

WEEKLY SCHEDULE

Reading: Your child will read 1/2 hour daily in class from an AR book. The class will be working on learning and doing a list of strategies by which we look at and interact with reading at the 4th grade level. Reading groups are M-Th of every week.

In reading groups, students are reading a fictional book, and interpreting the literature through either Signposts, or breaking down the characters/ characters' thoughts throughout the progression of the book.

 

Math: Your child will do daily problems with the class. Also, we will regularly take timed tests in order to increase speed/accuracy of both X and division facts.  We are working on fractions, decimals, rounding, and metric measurement conversion. We are also  continually reviewing/practicing multiplication strategies. 

 

Science: The students will go to Science 2 times per week, Monday and Thursday after lunch. Our Science classroom is now located  in room 9, next to us.

 

P.E.: Twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, we will be having PE at the end of the day.

 

Writing: We are working on an Opinion Essay. 

 

Social Studies: We have learned about Early Explorers to CA, the clash with Native Americans already living here, the Rancho Economy, the Gold Rush, and the CA Government.  We had a lot of fun asking Mark Stone, our assemblyman in Sacramento, about how a bill becomes a law, how to get an initiative on the ballot, etc. It's been a great year learning tons of Social Studies on the way CA became a state!

An FYI About Birthday Celebrations


     
We, the teachers of Valencia School,  were just told on 8/13/2018  at our staff meeting that the School District is no longer allowing

sweets like cupcakes for a birthday celebration in class.  This is due to a request coming from the District Health Committee for something more healthy. Prizes, or perhaps fresh fruit, etc. would be completely okay. You may, of course, call the District Office for clarification on this.
