April Showers in 4th


     This week was a very fun week. On Wednesday, we wrote our last journal entry from the perspective of a person on the Oregon Trail. Then, we finished our persuasive essays on our National Parks. We are making them into videos. Also on Thursday, we had extra time in art to make paper mache pieces of cake. They are inspired by pop artist Wayne Thiebaud Finally on Friday, we had a popcorn and movie party! We won it at the auction. This week was lots of fun!

     This week was busy wrapping up our Oregon Trail adventures! We have moved on in Social Studies to how Oregon becomes a state. The students worked in groups to read and discuss the challenges the early setters of Oregon faced. I heard some great discussions and ideas floating around. 



          We got a treat on Monday as the students in band showed us their amazing talent!











     Onward to May and then we will slide into June. Unbelievable this year is winding down! We will be packing in some awesome learning in these last weeks of school. Thank you for your continued support. 

God Bless,
Jenn
