Next week we will be diving into argumentative text which will focus on trying to persuade your audience that a certain career/job is the most responsible. To kick off this project we had Officer Enger come and speak to the fourth graders about the responsibility a police officer holds. Thank you again Officer Enger!
**Ask you child...What are the first 5 multiples of 5? (5,10,15,20,25)
Science & Social Studies
The students are investigating different rocks and trying to identify which minerals make up their rocks. Today we completed a calcite quest to see if the mineral calcite was present in their rock samples.
**Ask your student...How do you know if calcite is present in a rock? (When we put it in vinegar we can see bubbles fizzing to the top.)
Our class acted out turning bills into laws for our classroom. Each group represented a state and those "states" came up with bills that we could possibly turn into new classroom "laws". Here is a list of some of our bills that were turned into laws:
- Have a show and tell time
- When we earn 50 coins as a class we get a reward (ex: extra recess)
- Watch a movie during classroom parties
**Ask your student what role the played in the activity (senator, citizen, or supreme court justice)?
