Parkside Elementary Fourth Grade
May 2nd - 6th, 2016
This week brings another week of EOG Test Taking Strategies and Skills review. This week we are reviewing the skills related to looking at theme of dramas (RL 4.2) and explaining the difference between poems, drama, and prose and refer to the structural elements of each (RL 4.5). The following website has some great info in regards to theme as well as a few practice pages. http://mrswarnerarlington.weebly.com/theme.html
Students did not bring home their NC Ready booklet this past Thursday. They will bring it home this WEDNESDAY for you to view/review. Remember, if the book does not return there will be a $12 fee to replace it. We use this booklet in class daily, so it must return.
On Thursday we will have a mock literacy EOG during 1st and 2nd block. It will consist of everything we have learned this school year and all we have reviewed the past few weeks.
Science and Social Studies
The International Projects were awesome and now the grading begins...I should have them graded and recorded before we have mid-quarter progress reports. Thank you to all who participated!!!!!!!!
For Science I will be incorporating a project and hands-on experiment. Since we have to have an in class Science Fair students will be making water bottle ecosystems. We will be putting Coleus seeds in the water bottle to see if we can get the plants to grow. As we go along students will fill in the parts of a science fair board. Two projects in one and done!!
Super Field Trip...
According to students the best thing was the Swinging Bridge and the least liked was having the lights out in the cavern...kinda scary:(
Thank you to our parent chaperon's and students for a wonderful experience. Everyone learned something new!
