BIKE TO SCHOOL DAY- MAY 10th
Mr. Greiwe’s 4th Grade class is super excited to announce the first-ever Bike to School Day. These 4th graders have used persuasive writing to convince the school board, Fishers Police, Mrs. Lederach, and the staff that EVERY CHILD DESERVES AN EDUCATION. Now we need the CRES Students and Families to join us.
We are raising money to purchase bicycles through the organization World Bicycle Relief. The money will allow children in several 3rd World Nations to receive a Buffalo Bicycle, enabling them to attend school and get an education. One of our school initiatives is to Show Kindness and Become an Everyday Hero. We want to give our students the opportunity to do this. We are asking you to consider making a donation of any amount toward this event, as well as participate by riding a bike to school.
Please use the attached information to register your cyclists by Friday, May 5.
We will be getting a new math series next year. I don't want materials to go to waste so I will be sending things home with kids to use for extra practice. Feel free to do a page here and there for NWEA prep, summer practice, or just for fun!!
On Monday we are going to do an experiment to see if a cotton ball or ping pong ball will go farther off a catapult. We are having so much fun writing lab reports.
Eagle Creek Field Trip- Wednesday, May 3rd
Kids will need to bring a brown bag lunch will all disposable items. Please do not send peanut butter. Everything in the bag will need to be throw away after lunch. We will be outside hiking and learning about birds. I suggest shoes that can get a little dirty.
More information will come soon.
Reading- We are continuing to grow as nonfiction readers. We made books bins on topics of interest to read from. The kids will read about similar topics in clubs and compare contrast, find the main idea, and practice hanging on to keep details.
If your child brings their iPad home please have them read a story and take a quiz on reading a-z each night.
Writing- We are counting writing about science and the world around us. The lab reports are looking great. Check out seesaw!
Math- We will begin to learn about arrays. Please continue to use 5-10 minutes a night to practice math skills. We are starting to review each day for upcoming end of year testing.
Homework- Don't forget to read and practice math each night! IXL has data and graphs section that connects to the work we just finished.
Thanks for working at home!!
Let's have a great week!!!
