News from Mrs. Priebe's 4th grade class ...
GO 'FOURTH' AND LEARN
Thursday was SCIENCE DAY - The day started with an outstanding presentation on the science behind our Christmas toys! Later, we had fun classifying "rocks" (candy bars) in a classroom science investigation. After lunch, the students and I played with science through many hands-on exploration stations! Making our own rockets, visiting a planetarium, and learning about static electricity were a few of our activities! To conclude the day, the students learned about many different chemicals and chemical reactions. BOOM! BOOM! Two very loud explosions... oh, we were excited!!!
Friday was GAME DAY - Students and I celebrated with a scavenger hunt, games, movie, and way too many treats!!! An unforgettable day!!! To wrap up the day, the students were involved in a Christmas sing-along and AR celebration! We duct taped Mrs. Hausmann to a wall. If that wasn't enough, we then slimed her with silly-string!
Here are the lessons we will cover after Christmas Vacation:
Monday - NO SCHOOL
Tuesday - L58 MULTIPLYING THREE-DIGIT NUMBERS

Fourth Grade Resources
I created this LiveBinder this summer for my new fourth grade scholars! This binder is full of helpful websites and tools to assist your child. It's similar to a virtual live bookmarking website. I update the binder often! Enjoy!
