4th Grade Newsletter * Week of Feb. 29th-March 4th

From the Desk of Mrs. Eske:

It's a LUCKY week! :) I am so lucky and blessed to have such an awesome class. Also, as luck would have it, Friday is the last day of third quarter!!!! It is also the day before SPRING BREAK begins!!!! Only one more quarter until my fabulous fourth graders transition into fantastic fifth graders!!!!


I hope that everyone has a wonderful break and since we will not have homework...have an amazing time "Sharpening the SAW!"


Love,

Mrs. Eske

Building LEADERS one subject at a time!

Reading: This week we will be reading The Three Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, The Three Javelina's, (a Spanish version of the Three Little Pigs), and Lon Po Po, (an Asian version of Little Red Riding Hood). We will compare and contrast the stories, using a Venn Diagram, and explain the elements of a fantasy story/fractured fairytale.

Math: This week we will begin our unit on decimals. We will model tenths and hundredths.

Science: We will discuss weather and erosion and how they effect where and how people live.

Writing: This week we will continue to write fantasy stories. We will also write a SEA CREATURE fantasy story and a fractured fairytale.

A Fun-Filled Week Ahead!

Guaranteed to be exciting and fun!
