We are having a wonderful week in 4B!

Don't forget:  tomorrow is our 4th grade class picture that will be displayed in the hallway by the office!

"We just started learning about surveys, patterns and graphs.  Miss Bergin gave us a sheet of paper that had a list of things to do.  The directions were to read the questions and turn in the paper but everyone fell for it and did the silly questions.  We learned to read directions!" -Addie

This week in 4B...

I heard wonderful stories from the weekend during our daily high & low class meeting.  We also practiced today how to let someone know something in a polite manner that may not be easy.  For example, how do you tell someone they have food in their teeth without hurting their feelings?  Ask your child the example they role played for the class.  :)  

-Science: We started our new unit with Mrs. Prost to learn all about the Human Body!

-Reading: We are focusing on Non-Fiction text features and supporting our responses with evidence from the text.

-Writing/S.S.: We are working hard on our Informational Writing unit.  We are using our Famous Missourians to practice researching, drafting and organizing our writing to inform the reader.  Our on demand at the end of the unit will be on a topic of our choice so our 30 Book Challenge will come in handy when when recalling information that we have read.   

-Math: Measurement Unit-We have a test Friday and our study guide is the homework for the week.

-Famous Missourian permission slips due tomorrow 4/7
-Math Study guide due and test on Friday on Measurement
-Spelling Test Friday
-Friday: Join us for Jump Rope for Heart at 10:10! JRFH is in full swing and lots of great jumping is going on in PE.  OB is keeping its great tradition of giving to the American Heart Association going too.  We have raised over $12,000 already and Wednesday April 8th is our last day to take donations.  Building leaders so far are 1BL ($815), 3A ($940), 3W ($1120), 4C ($1171), and 1S is leading the way at $1785.  Thanks for all of your hard work and keep it going!
