Bartering Day!

 

        It’s that time of year again!  Bartering Day is an annual event and a fourth grade tradition.  The date is yet to be determined, but we will let you know soon!  Permission slips for this day will be come home and the students will be given an introduction to what this day involves.  Please return the permission slip as soon as possible so that your child may participate in this fun and hands on day of trade.  Your child should be able to answer your questions, but if not, feel free to contact me. 

 

Valentine’s Day

       

        Next Wednesday, February 14, we will have a small Valentine’s Day celebration in the morning during snack time.  Students may bring in Valentines to exchange.  This is optional, but if they do bring them in, we ask that they make sure they have one for each child so that no one is left out.

Curriculum

        In social studies, we are learning all about Colonial New York. We have been discussing the Dutch origins of our state, when it was the colony of New Netherland! The students are enjoying the journey back in time.  Next in social studies will be our study of the Revolutionary War.  We will cover New York’s role in the conflict, as well as important people and battles. 

Next in science we will do our life science units on plants, and vertebrate animals and their adaptations.      

In math, we will be studying fractions, but please don’t stop practicing those facts!  I am very proud of how well the students tackled long division.  It is not an easy process!

Our guided reading groups are going well.  The students are enjoying their realistic fiction novels.  We make connections with the characters and situations in these stories.  We are also working hard our ability to answer text based questions and define unfamiliar words.

The students have published their own realistic fiction stories that they worked hard to author.  Next we will be writing persuasive pieces on an opinion topic.

       

That is all the news for now!
