Mrs. Eske's Team: Building Leaders

4th Grade Newsletter * Week of April 18-22

From the Desk of Mrs. Eske:

Dear Families,

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend! The weather is certainly letting us know that spring has sprung! Love the sunshine, light breeze, and even the occasional rain shower!! We have hopefully washed away all of those MAP Testing worries, because fourth grade testing is complete!! I'm very proud of the students for doing their personal best!! As if that didn't fly by fast enough, it is also Mid 4th quarter! With only one month of school left I'm excited about finishing strong, but also enjoying all of the fun that we have to look forward too!! We have the Springfield Cardinals Field Trip coming up on the 27th, Frontier Theater on May 10th, and Field Day on May 13th!!

Building LEADERS one subject at a time!

Reading: This week we get to start our Mythology Unit!! We will be learning about Greek Gods and Goddesses and will be making our own Greek Mythology trading cards!!

Math: This week we will classify, measure, and draw angles!!

Social Studies: This week students will continue learning about the Civil War!

Writing: We will be continuing those grammar skills!! Plural and singular nouns will be our focus!!

A Fun-Filled Week Ahead!

Guaranteed to be exciting and fun!
