Peek at the Week

What's Coming Up
Science: Students have enjoyed several experiments studying rocks and minerals over the last two weeks. They will finish up the unit this week with a final experiment and a quiz. We will also complete a whole grade water filter project on the 21st and 22nd.
Writing: The rough drafts are almost finished and the next stage of editing and publishing will take place next week. Students will also complete the district writing prompt to asses their growth in writing.
Reading: 4th graders have started their work in small groups focusing on biographies. They will focus on our question, What it Takes to Achieve Your Hopes and Dreams. Groups will create a presentation for the class based on the book they read.
Math: We are completing our 3rd unit in math and will preview the 4th unit : Multi-digit Multiplication, before break. Students also brought home a packet last week that allows them to connect to resources, homework, games, and manipulatives on their computer from home. Password and username are on the packets and in their binders.

Thank you, this was an amazing experience for our students last year and many of them have stopped me in the hallway asking when our STEM day is this year.
Here are the following week's words:4th - Suffixes -ful, -ly, -ion
Our spelling words will be posted here weekly and students can use this as a place to practice their words.
Math skills are organized by standard and will be assigned in class and occasionally for homework.
Daily math activities are provided for a variety of ages. The site also includes parent blogs, games and other ideas for extending math at home. This is not homework, but an option for families and students at home.
