Fabulous Fourth Grade Newsletter – March 1, 2024 Edition

Dear Families, March 1, 2024

We had a lot of fun the last few days! First, students presented their biome posters this week. They learned a lot about each of their biomes. If you’re in the school, the posters are hanging up outside our classroom. They worked hard on them, which is evident! Second, they performed the reader’s theater of chapter 5 of our literature book: Shiloh. They loved it, and it was fun to watch. If interested, I posted them on the class’s Facebook account. Third, we had a celebration day today for the reward. Students got to read in tents at the end of the day today!

Next Friday, February 8th is a Teacher Work Day. However, the first half of the day is set aside for parents who would like to have an optional conference with me. I have only six slots available. If you would like to sign up, please hit this link to let me know. I maybe sending out the link to you if you are someone I would like to talk with as well.

Book reports are going to be written this time. We will write it in class. However, students need to be done with their books as they walk in the door on Thursday, March 7th.

The yellow permission slip is in the Friday Folder today for the Mt. Baker Theater in April. Please return by Monday. Please let me know if you can chaperone too!

Religion – Fourth Grade Theologians created our own Stations of the Cross. We also went to reconciliation with Fr. Moore and Fr. Dave.
Language – Fourth grade readers are reading Shiloh, a book about a family living in West Virginia. For spelling, we focused on words ending with -le and -en.
Math – Mathematicians are learning about the concepts of adding and subtracting with like denominators as well as converting fractions from improper fractions to mixed numbers and back. Lots of number fun!
Science – Scientists finished their biome poster and presented.

Spanish – Una nota de Señora Anna- This week in Spanish, students read and matched short clothing descriptions to pictures of people. Then, students wrote their own clothing descriptions including colors and numbers.

Art – We are studying a “Picture of the Day” which is: Lady with an Ermine (Cecilia Gallerani), by Leonardo da Vinci. The students have a small talk about art appreciation and how to observe and describe artworks using their senses.
