4th Grade Final Panther Party
The fourth grade would like to celebrate their final trimester party by having a “wheel and watermelon party.” On Wednesday, May 24th, those students who have qualified for the final trimester party (met the Dojo class average points at the end of the day on Tuesday, May 23rd) will be able to roller blade, play kickball, or play on the playground. We will also have a watermelon treat. Your child may bring rollerblades, skateboards, scooters, or bikes on Wednesday, May 24th. Please have your 4th grader’s name somewhere on their item in case it gets lost or if there are duplicates.
May 23rd: West/Southwest States and Capitals Quiz
May 24th: 4th Grade Final Panther Party (If your student met their DOJO goal, students can bring rollerblades, skateboards, scooters or bikes!)
May 24th: Pizza lunch for those who only miss 1 or 2 on their final States and Capitals test!
May 25th: Last day of 4th grade! 10:45 dismissal
Math: We have started our next math unit next which covers the following skills: multiplying fractions by a whole number, measurement word problems, and generating and identifying patterns.
Please work on their math facts!!
*Don't forget that your learners can access IXL at home and the game Prodigy. Both websites are excellent ways to have your 4th graders practice math skills!
Reading: The last couple weeks we will be doing a lot of reviewing of reading skills that we have covered this year in 4th grade.
Writing: We are almost finished with our opinion paper and completed our district writing assessment today. The last two weeks we will be integrating science into our writing as we research an animal and write an expository piece about the animal.
You can see most of their writing pieces on their google drive! Go to google.com, have your learn log-in like they do at school and then they can pull up their work!
Spelling: We will be doing two more Words Their Way sorts before the end of the year!
Science: We have been learning about plants and animals and will be beginning an Animal Adaptation project next week.
Social Studies: We are learning all about the region that we live in, the Midwest! Next week we will learn about the Southwest.
Here are the following names in our class: (we have 24 students)
Our Twitter account is for educational purposes only and for you to see what is happening in 4M!
Each week, I will be implementing a lesson on Tuesday's about the idea of being "mindful," which is the ability to be fully aware of yourself as you are in the moment. This requires one to be aware of their surroundings and what is happening right now.
This week our lesson is, "How to Recognize MY Feelings." This comes down to basic needs and their feelings, reactions, etc. to those basic needs which often drives behavior and moods. Often kids don't know why they are acting the way they are, this lesson will help them reflect on it. Not only that, they may just recognize it before it becomes a problem and come up with a solution :-)
