    Writing:

    In writing, the kids have been working on their class book that we will be sending off to Student Treasures Publishing Company. They have decided to write a nonfiction alphabet book called “Animals from A to Z”. They are having a blast learning about some new animals, all while reinforcing their research skills, note taking, and overall writing skills.  


    Reading:

    The 4th graders have completed their historical fiction reading unit. They have really grown as thinkers throughout this unit. They have found ways to understand the story elements as well as how the historical timeline plays an important role. A quote from one of the students... “I never knew learning about history could be fun!”

             

    Math:

    In math we completed our first fraction unit, which was focused on comparing fractions and finding equivalencies. They have used fraction strips, number lines, as well as multiplication and division using a fraction equal to 1 whole (ex: 2/2, 4/4, etc.). They also learned how to use a common denominator to compare fractions with different numerators and denominators. The next unit will be focused on addition and subtraction of fractions as well as breaking fractions apart.


    Sharing the Planet:

    The 4th graders have done some investigating of different energy sources, their sustainability and how they work. Next week they will continue building background knowledge about energy sources before they engage in some scientific labs to explore static electricity and circuits.


    Computer Class with Mrs. Mason

    The 4th graders have been working with Mrs. Mason each week for a computer safety class. They have been talking about how to be a good Digital Citizen. They discussed different community groups that they participate in and what the expectations for behavior are in each of these groups. They also talked about how standards of behavior should carry into Online Communities in the form of: being Kind online, keeping private info private, avoiding cyberbullying, respecting the thought/ideas of others, and sharing credit for online sources. The kids got to create their own mottos for their online behavior expectations and they all signed a Digital Citizenship Pledge! This week, they had a computer safety lesson during library time and they discussed Junk Mail. They talked about what Spam is, how to block it, how to recognize it and what dangers (computer virus) can result from clicking links from unknown individuals.
