Wanted: Cleaning Supplies

Our classroom is in need of cleaning supplies for the last week of school. Thank you in advance for your help!

  • white paper towels
  • Windex/ glass cleaner
  • Clorox wipes
  • rags
  • sponges

Spring Cleaning could help our classroom library!

If you have gently used books at home that are no longer in use, we would love to have you donate them to help grow our classroom library! We would love to have new picture books, chapter books, and magazines in our room!


**Before donating, please ensure the content (including ads in magazines) is appropriate for 4th graders. Thank you!

Math (Ms. Edlund's group)

We finished up Unit 10 last week and took our last full unit test. We may have a quiz this week, but the grades online should match up pretty close to what your child's Trimester 3 math grade will be. Please contact me if you have any questions!


This is our last week of math flex groups for the year!

Reading (Ms. Edlund's group)

We have FINISHED our Storytown reading curriculum for the year! This week, we will be focusing on our book clubs, along with our Greek mythology projects.


This is our last week of reading flex groups for the year!

Science

Mr. Schlad's Homeroom

We have been learning about heat transfer and insulators. For our final project, we are making solar ovens out of shoe boxes! The last group was able to reach upwards of 130 degrees Fahrenheit with their ovens... hopefully this group will do just as well! We will test our ovens by making s'mores :) With the rainy weather this week, we are hoping to be able to test them before the end of this year!!!


This is our last week of science and social studies groups for the year!
