Fabulous Fourth Grade Newsletter – January 12, 2024 edition

Dear Families, January 12, 2024

We had a fabulous Mass today! Thank you to families that helped the speakers/readers do their parts. You support is immense!

In social studies, your children are having fun researching and preparing a Power Point presentation on a region of Washington State. They will be teaching the rest of the class about it early next week.

Religion – Fourth Grade Theologians prepared for the Mass this week as well as had another lesson in Second Step in which students “rethink” situations where there were strong feelings.
Language – Fourth grade readers are finishing up small groups on one of these books: Freckle Juice; Sarah, Plain and Tall; Whipping Boy; or War with Grandpa. In spelling, we focused on the words with more letters than sounds.
Math – Mathematicians worked on factors of multiplication and the divisibility rules in order to prepare for the fraction unit next chapter.
Science – We revised our salmon test if needed this week on Seesaw.

Spanish – Una nota de Señora Anna- This week in Spanish, we learned vocabulary to talk about the weather and seasons. We compared pictures, descriptions and clothing for different types of weather.
