Miss Johnson's Class
Here are the days that I have scheduled to celebrate your child's birthday here at school. If your child has a summer birthday I have tried to do their half birthday, at least get it close to their half birthday. If you have any conflicts with the date please let me know and we can reschedule.
Also, if you and your child choose to bring a treat for your child's birthday please either send it with your child or schedule a time with me to bring it to class. Also, remember it has to been store bought.
4th Grade Team Building
On Friday August 25th the whole fourth grade came together to learn what it means to work together to succeed. We watched a clip from Finding Nemo where we learned a lot of lessons like: trust, courage, helping, working together, persevering, and many more. Our motto is "Keep Swimming" with things get hard and remember the power of "yet". I can't do something "YET"! After talking about all these great ideas we went to the gym to play a game called Mingle. Where the kids had to work together to get into groups when a number was called. A lot of lessons were learned during this game and I hope the students remember them. Here are a few pictures and video of the game.
If you cannot find your child's permission slip for the field trips this year, just click on the form and print it out and send it in.
Having Fun with Math!!
The students had to work together in math to create a shape using pattern blocks. Each student in the group had a clue (some clues were REALLY HARD!) that would tell them what shapes to use and how many. It took a lot of good communication, a lot of thinking and a few tries but they got it!
