The actors and actresses of 4B are starting to get a little jittery as we get closer to their performance date of December 13. If your fourth grader has a solo part, please make sure they are learning their lines. Work loads will be lighter due to extra show practices this week. 
RELIGION - We will continue to work on the Jesse tree, refreshing our memories with the bible stories that preceded the birth of Jesus.
MATH - We will start to focus on how multiplication and division are related and work on increasing speed and accuracy with the division facts.
SOCIAL STUDIES - I have decided to postpone the social studies test until Wednesday to give them a little more time to study. At week's end, we will start our study of the Southeast region.
LANGUAGE ARTS - We will continue reading "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" in reading. The spelling list contains words with suffixes and their base words. All are signed into Spelling City and should be visiting the sight throughout the week to review their words. The "Buzzword" is ambition and its prompt is: "What do you have the ambition to learn or do?"
