We are already half way through the first quarter. I am in awe of how well the students are settling in to being a fourth grader and how fast our time has gone by. Field trip permission slips for the NILE Ag. Ed. went out today. Please sign the permission slip and return as soon as possible. The field trip will be next Monday in the morning. Please take time to complete the below survey regarding the Family Fun Night in October I mentioned at Open House.
Today we read about Celia Cruz. We discussed how Celia showed her Cuban heritage through her songs and dance. The students have been engaged in reading the book as we get the opportunity to read the book both in English and in the native Cuban tongue.
We continue to learn about the great state we live in during our social studies time. The students learned about the hottest and coldest temperatures recorded in our state. We were all very thankful we were not alive to experience the extreme temperatures.
Students continued to learn about the properties of addition. We will begin to break out into groups during math so that every student has the opportunity to experience on level instruction and practiced based on their math needs.
Mrs. Deborah, my mother, came today to talk about quilts. The students experienced various artifacts that relate to quilting and the history of sewing. We are all fascinated by the technology we now have that makes it so much easier to sew. The students will continue to learn about our past through experiencing more artifacts next week. The assignment notebook code for today is for your student to identify one artifact and how it relates to quilting. I hope you all have a great night and I look forward to another day of learning tomorrow!
I am a fourth grade teacher going on my seventh year of teaching. I have truly loved every year that I have taught and I look forward to sharing classroom activities we take part in during this upcoming school year!
