Classroom Curriculum

Language Arts: Students will be sharing their favorite picture book with their classmates. Students will be ask to think about the book that they share by using Notice and Note and Book Head Heart reading strategies in class. Students will be working on a fourth grade memory book and putting together their California Books.

 

Writing: Student will be writing Flashlight Stories.

 

Science: Circuit Lab

 

Math Fact Practice: Students should be practicing their multiplication facts daily. Once they know those automatically you can begin to work on their division fact skills. Please break this large task into small pieces. You can practice the times 4's and then when they have those solid you can add another group like the times 3's. If you practice all the facts randomly it can be overwhelming to your student. Their future math success depends on knowing their math facts VERY well. Practicing even 5 to 10  minutes a day can be beneficial. Math Fact Master is a great app for electronic flashcards.

 

Math Chapter 19: Decimals: Students will understand the place value of whole numbers and decimals to two decimal places and how whole numbers and decimals relate to simple fractions. Students will be able to read and write mixed numbers, fractions and decimals.  They will be able to write tenths and hundredths in fraction and decimal notation. (For example, 1/2 = 0.5 or .50 or 7/4 =1 3/4 = 1.75) Order and compare fractions and decimals. Students will learn to add and subtract decimals.

 

 

 

News from the Office:

 

Students who are not present on the last day of school, parents can pick up their report cards at the front office beginning at 12:30 on Thursday, June 7th.

 

Pick up and Drop off concerns: Please make sure that you are following traffic laws and carpool procedures that are outlined in our Parent Handbook. Parents need to be respectful of our neighborhood and community while bringing students to school and modeling good citizenship for students.

  • Do not park in neighborhood driveways or block any section of driveways.
  • Do not move garbage cans to park, this causes neighbors to miss their garbage pickup.
  • Do not park in Sunrise/Shadelands staff parking or traffic circle to drop off or pickup.
  • Do not drop students off in street as this is dangerous.

To help with traffic, remember that supervision is provided starting at 7:45 am. and students may be dropped off then.

At Monte Gardens we work together, staff and parents, to help students succeed. Please continue to work with us and support our school by following procedures outlined above.

 

Parents please remember to log your volunteer hours through Our Volts on our school website. Parent support and volunteer time directly effects each student in the class and helps to make Monte Gardens such a great school.
