Fourth Grade News
Mrs. Gove's Class
Friday, January 8
I want you to know that your kids are doing awesome things. I am truly enjoying working with every single one of them. Over break I looked at our Middle of the Year Benchmark assessments and was so happy with the growth these kids have made since the beginning of the year. I'll be sharing some of this information with you as I analyze the data. To start with, every single student in our class moved up at least one reading level, with some improving multiple levels! (See your child's grade card for this information.) As we focus on having a Growth Mindset the rest of the school year, I cannot wait to see what more we will achieve!
Congratulations to Korey for being voted by her classmates as our Top Rocker of the month for showing respect!
Congratulations to Codi, Carina, and Tice for having perfect attendance for the whole first semester!
Have any old board games laying around?
Our attendance the week before break was 89.8%. Our weekly goal is 95.8%. However, we won a class reward for accumulating another 10 days of perfect attendance! Also, the whole building had the highest December attendance in Price Elementary history!
This week we reviewed the steps of the Scientific Method.
We conducted an experiment to find out if the size of a paper airplane affects how far it flies.
We will also be learning about variables in science experiments in preparation for the science fair.
