Dear 4th Grade Families, 


Well, our 4th graders have been very busy these least few weeks.  We are learning about the Native American Tribes of Idaho, and our new read aloud is Along the Wide and Lonesome Prarie (Dear America) by Kristiana Gregory, which will get us ready for our next Lewis and Clark unit in Social Studies. 

Your child(ren) just received two book report projects.  The narrative fiction book report is to be created and made at home.  Check out my website for information regarding the narrative fiction book report which is due on 19DEC.  The other book report is to be done in class with a holiday picture book and is due on 07DEC.

Lastly, the students will be asking you about how their family arrived in Idaho.  The who, what, when, where, and how of this topic should be discussed so they can write their first essay for their Idaho books when we come back from Thanksgiving break. 

Thank you.

Mrs. Garrett
