Welcome!  Welcome! Welcome To the Fabulous 4th Grade!

3/16/20 

 

 

Your child should be working on their work packet that was sent home last week.    We will also be using google classroom to post work for the children to do.  The work we are adding is not meant to stress anyone out.  Do what your child is able to do.  Dont feel overwhelmed.  We are just adding resources to help engage your child during this difficult time.

  The gala has been moved to May 30th.

Space Station de Chantal will be rescheduled later in April.  I will need parent volunteers (7-10) to come help with this.  You need to be Virtus approved.  If you can help please email me.  I will send out a list of donated supplies that we will need for our space station.  I also need the children to bring in one empty tin can the size of a soup can for an activity at the space station.

Payment #2 for Science Camp is due when we get back to school.

 

March

March came in like a lamb, hopefully it will stay that way. It is a little sad we did not get any snow this year, but I am definitely ready for spring.


In Religion we have been learning about the Ten Commandments. We will have a big test over all of the Commandments. Students will need to be able to write from memory all of the Ten Commandments. We are attending weekly Stations of the Cross during Lent. We will then be moving on to studying the Beatitudes.


In our reading book we are reading stories in Wonders about the moon, inventions, and some poetry. We will also be starting a novel The Titanic Sinks. If your child has a copy of the book from an older sibling, please send that in by Friday. If you do not have a copy please send in $6.50 cash to purchase the book.


In math we are working on decimals. Please keep reinforcing those math facts at home. They are the key to success in math. Don’t forget to do your IXL every week. It counts towards your grade.


In science we are studying space. There are several cool things we do with our space unit. Everyone will create their very own model of a planet of their choice. Click on the link above labeled planets for details on this. We have our field trip to the Air & Space Museum on March 12. If you would like to volunteer to chaperone please send me an email. I will also need volunteers to help with Space Station de Chantal. I haven’t picked a date for that yet, but most likely later in the month.


In Grammar we are working on pronouns. We have shipped off our grandparent books. They should be back by the end of April from the publisher. In writing we are writing letters to leprechauns and will be doing lots of writing around the Titanic.

There’s never a dull moment in the 4th grade!

 

 

 

To encourage parents to check the web page weekly, I may place a secret word on the web page.  Write the secret word in your child’s organizer & they will get a treat on Fridays.  The secret word is Mars.
