Welcome to the 4th Grade!
Remember to cut box tops and send them in for more spirit points. again, make sure they have not expired. We use the box tops to get cool things for the school.
We’re finishing up our reading selection “The Horned Toad Prince” (everyone LOVED this selection!) and Unit 2 in Math (finally, a very long unit). Everyone has written and recorded their holiday tradition story. These will be up under long term projects to share. Showing them to fiends and relatives over the holidays is very fun, and the kids are thrilled to share. We’re also wrapping up our technology and engineering projects in science and should be starting rocks and fossils right after the New Year. The hearing enhancement devices were terrific! Everyone worked very well together. In social studies we will be finishing up the western region of the US and and traveling east to the mountain region very soon!
Winter break starts at 1:00 December 21st. We’ll be back January 2, 2019! Have a great vacation! I hope you experience all the joy of the season.
