Fabulous Fourth Grade Newsletter – May 31, 2024 Edition

Dear Families, May 24, 2024

Your children have been working hard this week! They finished their Three-Dimensional city blocks for a STEAM project. They had fun displaying in the back of our classroom tonight.

We also had fun at the Multicultural Fair tonight. They have learned so much! I’m very proud of them!

We will be having our field trip on Wednesday to Marine Park! I have 8 people signed up for driving. If anyone wants to just meet us at the park and still chaperone because I have lots of space in other cars, please let me know. All are welcome to come. This field trip is a fun ending day for our class on a low tide so we can see lots of animals! 🙂 On Monday, I will email an itinerary and who will be riding in each car.

Fun at the Multi-Cultural Fair tonight! Thank you for coming

Spanish – Una nota de Señora Anna- This week in Spanish, we learned about the cultures of some Spanish-speaking countries. We also prepared for the Multicultural Fair. Be sure to stop by the Spanish room to see what your student(s) has been learning!

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.
