Teacher Marc Van Assen - Fourth Grade  (Send e-mail)

September 22nd, 2017

We are currently working on informational writing. Each student has chosen a natural disaster to focus on. Please try to do some research at home on your topic. We are looking for general information on the topic as a whole and then information on a specific hurricane, tornado etc.
The students may bring in printed information or information notes on the topic.

The Bucket List reading is going great. This is only for students that remain with me for ELA. feel free to take the folder home to check progress. Please make sure the folder comes back to school every day. The students will be responsible for reading 10 books each quarter.

Each book will need to be approved by me. Each book will also have to be from a different genre. At the end of the quarter
the student will be responsible for a project.

Eureka math is moving along quickly.
We will be done with module 1 this week. Module 2 parent tips sheet is in the download section below. Please continue to work hard on the homework and please make sure the work books come back and forth each day.

Feel free to visit youtube and search for Eureka module __ lesson __. You will find videos that will guide you on some of the problems from the lesson.

Lunch for our team is scheduled for 11:00 - 11:20 with recess following.

We will have a snack time in the afternoon.
