Fantastic Fourth Graders

Fourth grade is a FANTASTIC year! There is so much to do and so much learn. Some of the highlights of this year will be Immigration Day in October and an architectural field trip to downtown Chicago in May, in between these exciting events, fourth graders will learn long division, delve into inquiry projects, and even assemble electrical circuits to turn lights on and off! For all these exciting learning experiences and more, fourth graders need a FANTASTIC attitude. Remember that no one can do everything right the first time! Things take time and practice. You will make mistakes. In fact, I expect you to make mistakes and learn from them! This is called growth mindset. Understanding that life is not always easy, but with hard work, you can achieve anything in school... and beyond. So, welcome to your best year yet!
