A Week in Fourth Grade

     We had a fantastic time this week. First we had a Friendship Family Picnic. We all had treats and sandwiches. Afterward, we played on the field. On Tuesday, we started building our cardboard arcade games. We continued to build on Thursday. Finally, we researched the nine Native American tribes of Oregon. We are going to write a story about the tribes in first person.

     This week we did a Mystery Skype. This is how it works: we Skype a class in the country or the world and try to figure out where they are. We ask yes or no questions. On Monday, the class was from Chicago and on Friday, the class was from Ontario, Canada. It was so much fun! This week we learned about landslides and finished our study of the birth of rocks. It was spectacular! On Thursday, we finished The Wild Robot by Peter Brown. It was a really good book. Blessing of the pets was on Thursday. People brought in their pets and Deacon Mike blessed them.

     We continue to review in Math, and will move to multiplication and long division soon. As Beau mentioned we finished our studies on the Birth of Rocks and will be moving onto landforms next. 

     This coming week, the Fourth Graders will start their first weekly spelling test. The spelling list will be written in the student planner on Monday. We will begin with a pre-test on Monday to give each student a clue as to which words they should study. They will put a star by that word in their planner. Test will be given on Fridays. The week the test will be on Thursday as we have no school Friday.
