Update on What We’re Up To!

Hi Parents,

In Reading, we’ve been analyzing Informational Books as mentor texts to help us write our own Informational Book topic of our choice.

Fractions are what we’ve been tackling in Math, with Decimals coming soon! A test on Unit 7 will be happening either at the end of this week, or early next.

We are wrapping up Social Studies by Taking a Stand on a pubic issue using the Core Democratic Values of the United States.

In Science, YES! Science! We will be practicing the Scientific Method…

  • Purpose- What do you want to know?
  • Research- What can you find out?
  • Hypothesis- What do you predict?
  • Experiment- How are you going to test it?
  • Analysis- What happened during your experiment?
  • Conclusion- What did you find out?

by dissecting OWL PELLETS! It will be a ton of fun!!

Our Super STEAM Teacher!

Mrs. Totten, our incredible STEAM STUDIO teacher, has been selected as one of the Air Zoo’s Science Innovation Hall of Fame Educator Excellence Awardees!

Mrs. Totten excels as a teacher who implements curriculum that grows passionate learners.  Students in her classroom utilize Project Lead the Way materials  — and their K-5 participation grows each student into an innovative, creative designer and problem solver.

We feel honored to work with Mrs. Totten every day — and as a staff, we are thrilled that she is being recognized!

What’s Up in 4th Grade :)

Hi Parents,

Here’s what we’ve been up to!

Math- we are digging into Unit 4 tackling story problems with all four operations, finding factor pairs and generating/analyzing number patterns.

Reading- Nonfiction Book reading skills. Reading, responding to text and sharing topics that we are learning with others.

Writing-Literary Essay. Using a BIG Idea, we will prove our point by using evidence from lessons that authors teach us within the books we read in class.

Social Studies- We are wrapping up our last lessons on the Federal Government and will be taking a test soon. Study materials will be coming home.

Science is on the way!!
