Dear family,
                     Welcome to our third and fourth grade classroom!  There are 16 delightful students in this classroom.
                     Parents, this year we are giving reading and math tests at the end of every third and six weeks in order to measure progress and check comprehension.  That is new, so I want you to be aware of this.
                     We are currently studying place value and problem solving, map skills, and physical properties.  We are also reading and discussing The One and Only Ivan.  
                     Progress reports go home soon as this is a short 6 weeks.  I am enjoying working with your child.
