Class Stuff
  • Our class earned the upper-grade pizza party from the PTA sponsored "No T.V. Week" challenge.  I am so proud of the fun things that members of our class did besides watching T.V.
  • Social Studies - We have started talking about Archaeology.  See our blog.
  • Science - Our weather unit is in full swing.  We have talked about all the different tools that meteorologists (weather scientists) use and also talk about some properties of air. 
  • Math - We have learned about factors and multiples.  We have been exploring perimeter and area.
  • Language Arts -  We have started our guided reading groups up again.  We are reading some of my favorite fantasy books.  We are exploring how Reading is Thinking!
  • 40 Book Challenge - You should have read about 10 books so far to be on track for our challenge.  If you don't have that many then pump it up.
    • Books we have read as a class that will count are: Fourth Grade Rats (RF), first Guided Reading Book (RF), and Come Back Salmon (I).
