Ross' Writing, Science, & SS

4th Grade - December 14, 2015

Writing

Opinion writing is going well. I enjoy reading the variety of topics and claims that the students are writing about. They are as varied as their personalities which makes them super fun to read and discuss.


The drafts are complete, so our work this week will be on revising their work. Our focus will be on adding transitions and opposing views to add strength to the claim.


When you have a minute, ask your student what their opinion piece is about and challenge her/him to support their claim with reasons, evidence and examples.

THANKS FOR ALL THE MINI SOCIETY SUPPORT!!

Thank you so much for all the support you have given the Mini Society Warehouse by sending in classroom donations and by providing supplies for your child's business. Both groups are incredibly creative and are learning some great lessons about supply and demand and working with other people. I think Bell Prairie has some budding entrepenuers in the making!!

SCIENCE WILL BEGIN AGAIN IN JANUARY WITH A MAGNETISM AND ELECTRICITY UNIT OF STUDY

Social Studies - Economics

This week, our Economics unit ends. Students have learned about scarcity, opportunity cost, and supply and demand. They have also experienced how a economic society works through Mini Society. Tuesday, they will have the opportunity to have an International Market Day with another 4th grade class and Wednesday will be their last selling Market Day. They will be hosting another 4th grade class as well as buying and selling to their own class.
