4th Grade Scoop

End of the Year edition

Biltmore Trip!

Amazing. Challenging. Unforgettable!

It is amazing that our year is coming to an end! On one hand it feels like we just got started; on the other we feel like a family that has been together forever. But whether we like it or not, our fourth grade year is coming to an end. It has been full of learning, reading engaging stories, solving challenging math problems, laughing with our friends, learning to appreciate and tolerate each other's differences and becoming the learners we want to be! I am so very proud of everyone's hard work and progress. I could not ask for more excited, engaged, caring, respectful students- they have been so fun to learn and play with! They are ready for the fun and challenges of fifth grade. Summer first, though! Thank you for sharing your awesome kids- they are a true joy and I have been so blessed to spend my days surrounded by their zest for life and learning! I love them so!

The Fun's Not OVER Yet!

Elk Knob Field Trip on Friday, May 20th

To observe and study animal adaptations in our very own ecosystem, we will be visiting Elk Knob State Park. We will learn from a park ranger about how animals survive in our ecosystem, play fun games that simulate survival, eat a picnic lunch and do a bit of hiking. We will be leaving Green Valley about 9:00 and will return around 2:15 in the afternoon. All parents are welcome to join us on this trip at no cost!

Breakfast of Champions I & II on May 31st and June 1st

To get our students ready for their end of grade exams we will hold a breakfast in our classroom on the mornings of May 31st and June 1st. I would love your help gathering breakfast food items and supplies. A sign-up will be sent via email very soon. Thanks in advance for your help!

'It's All Greek to Me!' Day! on Tuesday, June 7th

To culminate the end study of legends and Greek myths, we will be having a day related to all things Greek. In the morning hours, we will read and share our student-written myths and have snacks the ancient greeks might have eaten. We will have some Olympic events and finish off the day with a modern day movie The Lightning Thief (which we are currently reading aloud). Students can bring a sheet and a scarf (long enough for a belt) and we will garb ourselves in typical Greek attire. It will a fun day to go Greek! Parents and families are invited to any and all events!

3rd - 5th Grade Field Day on Thursday, June 9th

Students in grades 3-5 will participate in a variety of wild and wet physical challenges. It is a fun day for students to enjoy each other and being active. We would love for families to join us in the fun! Everyone is welcome!
