Welcome to 3rd and 4th grade!

If you have found this website then you must have received the newsletter that I sent home in the Friday Folders last week.  Yay!!

I would like to welcome you to this blog! I have kept up with a blog in the past and did fairly well doing it but I have also had this blog and have not been so good keeping up with it...Wish me luck!

This blog is a place for information about our classroom and our school.  You will be able to check in and see what is happening during our days at Brush College.  Some posts will be about things we did or things we are working and and how you can help at home.  Other posts may be about upcoming events like our Jog-a-thon assembly that we are having this Friday! There are lots of things you will see on this blog. Also, our next big "thing" at Brush College will be our annual Curriculum Night.  It will be on October 8th and have a focus of Math.  You will see and hear all things having to do with Math! So definitely check back for more information.

Don't forget to check the sidelines of this blog for daily information that might be important! When Library books are due and when you should have an extra pair of gym shoes or wear comfortable shoes on our PE days.


Ask your 3rd or 4th grader about their reading logs for homework! They went home on Friday and are due Thursday.  There will be another reading log that will go home again this Friday and will be due again the following Friday.  Please check in with your child about this reading log to work on throughout the week! Thank you!

Lastly, 4th graders will have Math homework Monday through Thursday everyday.  We will not have homework on Fridays.  This will be a day to assessment and reteach ideas and standards that were missed throughout the week.  Remember that homework that comes home is practice from what we learned in class that day.  4th graders are encouraged to bring home their problem set so they can work on their homework at home and you will have a better understanding of what we are doing in class and what standards we are learning about in Math.  Please do not hesitate in contacting me if you have any questions about this!

I really would like to keep up with this blog so you have some great information about our classroom and things happening throughout our school.  I look forward to knowing if you finding it helpful or not.

Thank you so much and I am excited to see many of you for Curriculum Night on October 8th! :)

Have a great weekend! Enjoy the wonderful fall weather!
