This week in 4B....

Math- We have finished up our decimals unit and are going to work on some more word problems before we move into our next unit Geometry on Monday.  Please sign and return any math tests that come home :) 

Reading- "We finished up informational reading (our who was, what was where was projects) and now we're moving on to historical fiction book clubs.  In our book clubs we talk about our books and do activities. We should be jotting at least after every chapter so we have things to talk about.  Our read aloud is Number the Stars so far it's really good and we are learning about how to jot timelines and the 5w's (who, what, when where why)"-Catherine

Writing-"We are gathering information on our topics and making information essays and books.  We've learned how to find reliable sources and how to search for what you're looking for."-Fiona

Social Studies-"We are learning about the Louisiana Purchase and acted it out.  Next we will learn about Lewis and Clark!"- Sanaiya 

Harmonicas :) 
Through our art residency students are learning how to play the harmonica. They've had two sessions so far and will be writing songs on Thursday from 10:25-11:05.  Any parent volunteers are welcome to join our class and help us rhyme! (Our lunch time is right after harmonica if you want to stick around for lunch).  

Important Dates & Reminders:
-4th Grade Special Friends Breakfast-Thursday Feb. 1st 
-Dance A Thon-It runs from Jan 19th -Feb 9th. During gym, the kids will learn new and old dance moves. A fun way to be active and boogie down! On the last day Feb 9th they can show off their moves with a little dance party during PE (Our time is 3-3:30). Parents are welcome to come but this is not an official event.
The money will be put to us towards updating our outdoor facilities such as new basketball hoops, soccer goals, stations around the track and updating the stage area.  The RSA felt this most beneficial to all grade levels.
