Ms. Howell’s 4th Grade Class
September 12, 2014
In your child’s Friday Folder you will find a mid-term progress report. These are your child’s grades in each academic area thus far for the 1st 9 weeks. Please be sure to sign and return it in your child’s Friday Folder on Monday. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s grades please let me know. Also, remember to review and of the papers on the left side of your child’s Friday with them and initial the form.
If your child brings home a zip-lock bag full of math manipulatives today please take a look at the handout and direction sheet. These manipulatives are to be kept at home to help with homework and hands-on practice. I hope that you find these beneficial. Please take care of these manipulatives so future students can benefit from them too! If you have any questions please let me know.
Below are just a few reminders/notes that you will find in the Friday folder:
