Fabulous Fourth Grade

January 15, 2016

Hello!

Wow - We are 2 weeks into third quarter! This quarter, the highlights are:

Writing - Persuasive/Opinion Writing (Students will also write a journal as if they were on the Oregon Trail).

Reading - We are reading a book aloud about the Oregon Trail.

Math - Fractions!

Social Studies - Lewis & Clark, Westward Expansion, Famous Missourians, Missouri Compromise, Missouri role in Civil War

Science - Rock Cycle & Landforms

Mouse Races are 3/19

This year's mouse races will be another successful event, I am sure! I told the kids that I have a few silent auction items. Here is the preview:

1. Weekend with Beyonce - Bid for a weekend with our favorite furry friend, classroom guinea pig Beyonce.

2. Movie and Pizza after school with Mrs. Golder and up to 6 of your friends - 2:45-5:00.


I am also brainstorming with the kids about making some more pendants (for necklaces) and sell at the event. PTC is so generous to us teachers, I want to make sure I do my part.
