4th Grade – Lemley

December Newsletter

     Where does the time go? It’s hard to believe that it is December already, and we have only three weeks of school before our holiday break.

Lots of important events are taking place this month. First, is our Holiday Extravaganza on December 5th at the Lakeview Middle School Auditorium. We are also collecting food and needed items for our Holiday Family program. Please make sure to send in any items that you could spare to help out in this endeavor. School will dismiss for the holidays on Friday, December 19th and resume on January 5th. We wish everyone a safe and restful break.

In math during December we will be working with division. If your student has not memorized their math facts yet, they will defiantly need to master them quickly so that the learning of long division does not become overwhelming.

Social Studies will include the final region of the United States, The West. We will be learning all about the culture, land, and resources of the western region. We will be finishing our expository writing about our favorite state.

In science we will be finishing up the study of the earth learning all about weather and the effects of erosion. We will also be studying minerals and soil as we finish up the unit.

Please remember to send all needed outdoor clothing for recess time. We will go outside each day that the temperature remains above 10 degrees.

Have a great break and we will see you all soon.
