Spring has sprung and we are 2/3 through 4th grade! It has been a busy year and the students have grown so much. This third trimester always flies by so I am ready to enjoy every moment with these amazing kids. We will be traveling the Oregon Trail in Social Studies. In Science, the 4th graders will be exploring energy, motion and electricity under the umbrella of engineering. Our math studies will be taking us from fractions to decimals and then into geometry. The National Park report will be our focus in writing. Interwoven into all of these studies will be our Religion studies of gratitude and love of God. We are ready for a busy spring!
