Taking a Step Back in Time

Snow Days on Snow Days

Here's a recap of what we have done in school this last week, and a lot ahead as we come out of this crazy snow storm! I hope you all remember what I look like when we finally see everyone again!

Colonial Fair

Friday, Feb. 5th, 10am-2:30pm

Fourth Grade Hallway

Remember to dress in your colonial clothing! Students will be enriching what they have been learning in Social Studies by participating in various colonial activities including cross-stitching, eating a colonial feast, and learning some real colonial songs and games. Thank you to all parent volunteers that are helping make this event happen!

Parents, remember to send in your permission slips for your child to participate in our snack!

Too Late to Apologize: A Declaration

What's Happening in Read-Alouds?

This week, we finished our read-aloud of Kate DiCamillo's The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. If your child enjoyed this book, check out some of this author's other books including Because of Winn Dixie, The Tale of Desperaux, and her new book Flora and Ulysses. (Let me know if anyone needs help finding a book!)

In science this week, we started to learn about weather and the different instruments meteorologists use to predict what the weather will be like. During this crazy snow week, talk to your children about what they've learned so far about the weather and what they think of this record snowfall!

Students are welcome and encouraged to build their best snowman or snow fort and bring in pictures of their masterpiece when we do come back to school. Their snow experiences will be the topic of our next writing assignment.

Things to Do While Away!

1. Work on your graphing! We will be have a graphing review in Math and a test shortly after we return to school.

2. Revolutionary War Packets: Students were sent home with packets of work to do for social studies. All the information they should need will be in their SS notebooks, but you can always research more information if you want to learn more.

3. Friendship Day Projects: Instead of Valentine's Day, we will be celebrating "Friendship Day" on February 12. Students have little cards to fill out to each of their classmate with a compliment. We went over in class what a "good" complement should be. At the end of the project, each student will have a poster displaying what their classmates had to say about them.

Collecting Egg Crates!

Starting soon in math, we will be working with fractions. To help with giving the students more hands-on experiences, please bring in any empty egg crates you have at your home.
