4HA Weekly News
14th March 2014
Auditions for the play will be held on Monday. I sent home a letter and information form with each child. The letter contains the passage that children will read/recite at the audition, and the information form is for children to indicate which characters they are interested in being considered for. Please look at the 4th grade play section on our Haiku site, where I have put some resources from Ms. Moon.
We will also launch the Curiosity Project next week. This is an independent project in which children can choose to explore an area of personal interest. Some of the activities and research will be set as homework, and others will be completed in class. I will be putting more information on Haiku, to support this project.
We will begin to explore the script for our 4th grade play, The Phantom Tollbooth. Auditions for speaking roles will be held on Monday. The children have been given a passage to read, as the character of their choice, so please help your child to practice over the weekend. I have put a character list on our 4th grade play page on Haiku, along with some other resources!
We will also be launching the Curiosity Project this week, so we will discuss and practice research skills over the next few weeks. More information about the Curiosity Project will be published on Haiku on Monday.
Next week, we will use multiplication to rename mixed numbers as improper fractions. We will also begin problem solving with fractions. This will be quite challenging for some children, so we will need to spend several days on it.
