Hello Families of 4W,
Another amazing week in 4W was had, nothing earth shattering, but nonetheless it was a full week of hands on, real life learning! I hope you enjoyed the update yesterday about the Earthquake happenings. Today at all school morning meeting Dominic, Mason, Callie, and Grace presented a slideshow on earthquakes that they put together moments before presenting. They pulled from great work they had done in class and really gave a great show to the whole school. Well done!
Next week, we will try to keep spring fever at bay and focus on getting a lot of learning in before we break for winter vacation. We are talking a lot about taking care of ourselves with good hand washing, hydration, healthy eating, and adequate rest.
Make your moments count,
I am a caring friend.
This week we took a fraction pre-test to see where we are at with fractions. Our class is able to easily identify, shade, and create fractions. Next week we will be discussing equivalent fractions and how we go about finding them.
This week we moved on to Social Studies as we begin talking about our state government in preparation for our trip to the State House next month. We will be discussing government at the state level since NH is our focus.
Words will continue as normal this week! Continue to practice at home.
TEAM time round 2 will wrap up this week, with the last day being Thursday. Sometime after vacation round 3 will begin.
It has been a wonder to see these kids in action as they put their learning from this book to the test in real life. They continue to impress me with how they see each other’s differences, difficulties, and successes! What a great group of young people! I am grateful to spend my days learning with each of them!
Opinions are in full swing and with each day that passes, their evidence to support those opinions are building. Again, my apologies in advance!
