    • Possessives Test Thursday.
    • No Spelling or Vocab Test for the week of 10/13 due to MAP testing
    • Practice Singular, Plural, Singular Possessives, and Plural Possessives for homework tonight by doing the following:
      Go to IXL.com
      Scroll down a tiny bit and click on 4th Grade English
      Scroll down a bit and click on NOUNS
      Click and complete Exercise B11, B12, and B13
      There is nothing you have to turn in to the teacher.
      It would be WISE to practice B11, B12, and B13 over the weekend since you have a test on it on Tuesday. 
      Note:  IXL only permits a certain number of free practice questions a day. If you hit your max, just come back the next day.
      UPDATE:  IXL seems to be a bit different on each computer. That's okay.  Some computers might say "English Language Arts" instead of English. If yours is saying "English Language Arts", click on it and then scroll down to the "Grammar and Mechanics" section. Then, scroll down to the "KK. Nouns" section. In that section, you should practice 11, 12, 13. You can practice several times over the next week, although I believe the program limits students to ten free practice questions a day. I hope this helps. 

     

    Thursday, 10/8
