Fabulous Fourth Grade Newsletter – February 9, 2024 Edition

Dear Families, February 9, 2024

It is nice to have a full week to dive into good academics this week! In science, we have been learning different vocabulary words for biomes/ecosystems in our world. We are going to be using those new learnings as students have picked a biome to deep dive into to teach the rest of the class. They have been paired up to make a poster identifying how the vocabulary is portrayed in each of their interested ecosystem. For instance, they are researching the “biotic” and “abiotic” things in the chosen ecosystem and how the interact with each other. If you ask them, I trust they will remember what that vocabulary is! 🙂

We had so much fun with our buddies this week, making a Valentine’s Day art project with them!

In the Friday Folder, student are going to receive a “National Parks Pass.” Thanks to one of our fourth grade parents, Julia Gage, she organized getting the pass free for all fourth graders in our class! Go and enjoy a national park! There are many in our state! Here is a link to find them out!

New dates for helping during Math times are here!

They are adding their own special touches to make their pictures unique.

We had a fabulous field trip on Thursday! It was COLD, but we learned so much and was able to put our faith into action by taking care of God’s Creation by reclaiming an area that had the invasive blackberry bushes.

Thursday, November 30th, we are walking to and from Cornwall Park for our Salmon field trip, rain or shine! Please have your child/ren dress for the weather! They will also need a lunch they can carry. It will be stored at the field trip until we eat it.

After the break, I will be teaching the “Circle of Grace” curriculum required by the Archdiocese of Seattle to replace the “Touching Safely” curriculum that was required in the past. Fourth grade mostly focuses on Social Media and how to be safe in that arena. Let me know if you would like to know more about this or you would like to have your child sit out on these lessons.

I did not sent home your child’s Friday Folder due to using his/her papers during the conference next week. Speaking of conferences, your child is required to come. If you would like to have individual time, I would be happy to do that. Please indicate in the survey below. In order to prepare fully for the conferences, I need YOUR input as well. Please go here to fill out a survey giving me input on how you feel your child is doing for the beginning of this academic year. Please bring some non-perishables for the Human Food Chain (that will be on Monday) to your child’s conference! We are stockpiling in the foyer of the school! A list of what they really need is below!
