A Note from Ms. Deal
We continue to work hard and have fun in 4th grade. The students were especially excited to welcome our new student, Zeynep. Zeynep is from Turkey and will be a wonderful addition to our classroom community.
Please note that on September 23rd we will be going on a field trip to Sprout Lifestyle from 11:00am-1:30pm. The members of this team have created an authentic lesson to help our 4th graders learn more about nutrients. The permission form went home today and is due on September 16th. If you have interested in joining us, please let me know. I am looking for one parent to ride the bus with us that day. :)
P.E. next week will be on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Swimming is finished for the quarter. No swimming. :)
I was very proud of the Me Cubes. Each student added their own style to make these projects truly special. Well done, 4th graders!
Thank you and enjoy your weekend,

What's going on in room 223
The students created Who Am I? posters to showcase their knowledge of place value up to the millions place.
Along with explanation writing, 4th graders learn how to include 'vivid verbs' in their writing.
We finished the Me Cubes and did a gallery walk for students to see all of their peer's work!
Writing: This week the 4th graders continued to study Explanation writing. In addition, they also discussed verbs. We decided as a class to cut out a few verbs that were "boring" and incorporate more "vivid verbs" to our writing.
Reading: This week the students continued to enjoy their "good fit" books. A good fit book is a book that is on their reading level, interests them and is a book they will read from cover to cover. Thank you for the support with 20 minutes of reading at home each night.
