Report cards came home today. Please sign and return the envelopes by Monday. The class is doing a great job and they are excited about moving into the second half of fourth grade. Time sure does fly.


Also, the student's are bringing home a letter explaining a action research project I'm doing to complete my masters program. Please let me know if you have any questions. I would like those papers signed and returned by Monday as well.


The district has had us switch the format of the reading test. The new test is called the CCR test and the students took the first one today. There is a new component added which is a writing portion.. Right now we are completing that portion as a whole class or in small groups. Before these grades go into my grade book the students will take a few to get the format down.



Yumz orders are due Monday,January 26.

Social Studies

This week in social study's we sketched a design of the toy where making. We also voted for the ideas in a group and then we put the design of the toy on a big white piece of paper. Then the groups are presenting there ideas too the toy company (the class). The groups sketches where great!

Music

I am newsletter reporter for the week. In music we were talking about major and minor part of a song. We would start out with two pieces of paper then we would color other people's paper. Each paper would represent if it's happy or sad. We would draw what we feel about the song on the paper. It was really fun. Then, we talked about what a major is and what a minor is. A major is the loud and high note part of the song. The minor is the quit and low note part of the song. We learned a lot in music. It was a blast !

Art

On Tuesday in art we were working on our landscape projects. We are using watercolor dyes to paint. If you get on your shirt it will never come off. We are using 5 basic colors,red,magenta,blue,turquoise, and yellow. But we could mix beautiful colors.
On Thursday we continued working on our landscape projects. They look really good and colorful. Some people are already done because we started about two weeks ago. Some people are not done like me.
