May is here, and we are in our last month of school for 4th grade! Your kiddos will be 5th graders very soon! Please remember that our awards ceremony for our class is on Wednesday, May 18th, from 9:15-10:15a.m. Please RSVP with the number of guests attending so I can assure we have enough seating for everyone! Bring your cameras, because you will want to capture the moment when your child is "spotlighted"! Our class will have a photo booth and an autograph signing with their friends, as well.
We have several things happening this week. Please see below for reminders (also listed in my calendar):
Monday, 5/9 - Choir Concert 10a.m.
Tuesday, 5/10 - Dress Down Day AR
Wednesday, 5/11 - Citizenship Award Day - Students who earned it may bring one small stuffed animal or action figure to school
Friday, 5/13 - Field Day - Students may dress down in school appropriate clothing.
During Language Arts this week, we will begin our Literature Circles on "Out of My Mind". The students will have their own folder with reflection and discussion questions to complete after each chapter. They will be assigned a "circle" to participate in for the group discussions.
In Math, our class is continuing our preparation for 5th grade. We have explored fractions again, and will move on to geometry. The students will have a Checkpoint Assessment this week.
As we are reviewing for Science and Social Studies, the students will take part in Kahoot games, Jeopardy, and other group/class activities to help recall the information that we learned this year. The students will be dissecting their owl pellets this week and researching the different types of bones that are found in the pellets.
Have a wonderful week!
