4th Grade News

January 18, 2019

Dear Parents,

We had a wonderful full week of learning here in 4th grade! We looked at the difference between having Self vs. Holy Spirit in control in Bible, pronouns in Language, and began long division in Math.  In Science we had a special guest, Dr. Stephanie Parrish, talk to us about being an eye doctor as we finished up our chapter on light and the eye.  In History we are learning about the westward expansion of the United States. 

Spotlight On:

Eye Model Project – This is due on Monday, January 21.  When making the model, if any aspect is unsafe for the child to do themselves you may assist them, but otherwise please allow the child to design and make the project themselves.  Please let me know what questions you have.  I look forward to seeing their models!

Presidents - We are working on memorizing the presidents of the United States!  To help with this, students have been learning a song.  The song is in their take-home folders, and would be good for them to review as they prepare for quizzes and a test on the presidents.

Pizza! Pizza! – On Monday, January 21 there will be Little Caesars offered for hot lunch purchase instead of our normal Monday hot lunch menu items.

Valentine’s Day – Students are welcome to bring Valentines for the class on Valentine’s Day, but they must have appropriate valentines for the entire class.
