Fabulous Fourth Grade Newsletter – May 24, 2024 Edition

Dear Families, May 24, 2024

MAP testing is done! Yay! Your children did awesome! All students improved in at least three areas on their tests! I am beyond proud of them!

If you have not sent in when the edible creation will be brought in, please either send it in or email me the date. I will not accept any after June 6th!

The Multi-Cultural Fair is next Friday, May 31st from 7:00-8:30 pm. Our class is working on a collaborative assignment in which their group has been researching a particular Native nation from Washington state, answering questions that the students created as a class. They will be showing their information they have learned about in a variety of ways. Each student will be required to be at their station for 15 minutes of that time period to represent their group. They will also be required to go to the other classes’ presentations to learn about what they are presenting. If you would rather have your child/ren at an earlier or later time, please let me know. I will set the times on Tuesday and let you know via email. Thank you for your support on this! Your children are very excited to share what they have been learning and preparing for!

Since we have Native American groups from Washington, Libby Stark is has made a sign up genius to have parents sign up for Native American food to share at the Multicultural Fair. Here is the link for this.

The first six book reports were this week! We had some yummy creations!

Religion – Fourth Grade Theologians continued learning about the Holy Spirit and the state of graces that the Holy Spirit offers.
Language  – Fourth grade readers continued reading new chapter books. For spelling, we focused on the suffixes of -ment and -ness. We are writing our final paragraph of our five-paragraph essay about a pet!
Math – Students are building a model of a three-dimensional city block with a partner. They are very excited about this!
Social Studies – Students are now preparing for their Multi-Cultural Fair presentations.

Friday, May 31 – All school Mass – dress uniform

Friday, May 31 7-8:30 pm – Multi-cultural Fair


Spanish – Una nota de Señora Anna- This week in Spanish, we revisited the Spanish-speaking country project. After researching their country, students wrote a postcard imagining they had visited their country. Student’s Spanish-speaking country projects will be displayed at the Multicultural Fair next Friday, May 31.

Art Grandmother Spider Brings the Sun – Adding Native American-inspired patterns to illustrations of “Grandmother Spider Brings the Sun” introduces students to the rich cultural heritage of Pacific Northwest tribes. These tribes, like the Coast Salish and Haida, use bold geometric shapes and motifs like animals and symbols from nature in their art.
