Buckskinner Rendezvous Field Trip - We NEED Chaperones!
We are in serious need of chaperones for this field trip. Currently only one parent chaperone has volunteered for this field trip and we need 3-4. If you are able and willing please contact me about attending this field trip! My contact information can be found at the bottom of this webpage.
Your child will have the opportunity to purchase items at the Buckskinner Rendezvous. If you would like, please send your child with no more than $5.00 in spending money on the day of the field trip.
Unable to come the night of the show? Come see your student shine during the rehearsal! The rehearsal will begin at 1:15pm at the FAHS.
Our final math test went home with students this Wednesday. For the remainder of the school year your child will be grouped with other fourth graders to work on skills that are appropriate for their level. This differentiation will help all our students be successful in fifth grade.
This week students have begun learning about the genre of science fiction, while completing an author study on Jon Scieszka (author of The Stinky Cheese Man, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, and more!). Our students have really been enjoying this unit and learning about all the fun characteristics that this genre is made up of.
**Ask your child...What is a characteristic of science fiction? (aliens, outer space, magic, balance between good and evil)
Students have begun writing in the genre of science fiction this week. Students have completed a story map and a story mountain to detail what is going to happen in their story.
**Ask your student...Which invention did you choose to use in your story? What is the conflict and resolution?
- Assigned seats at the carpet
