Busy Week

We had our science motion energy test. The overall scores were good – 82% of the fourth grade passed the test. We reviewed the test and discussed the short answer questions. The test is located on their google classroom site.

Science this week has taken us to electrical energy. The students worked to create a circuit using a battery, wire, light bulb. They also worked to find out what materials will/will not conduct electricity. Open and closed circuits were created and even a switch to control their circuit.

We had an assembly on Friday – the Super U Challenge. The students were very engaged in the program about positive and responsible behavior.

This week we began our opinion writing. We started with a simple paragraph on their favorite candy. Our focus was on using opinion statements and providing evidence. Next week we will move into an opinion essay on homework.

Student Samples –

 Milky Way!!!

    The best candy in the whole wide world is Milky Way. One reason I like it so much is because when you bite into it you get caramel,chocolate and it’s crunchy! Also they come in bars. So when you finish one you have another to munch on.  Finally, they’re filling so you don’t want to eat after you have finished your Milky Way. In my opinion Milky Way is the best thing since toilet paper!

Reese’s

In my opinion Reese’s are the best candy in the world and I think you should go to the store and buy some Reese’s because they are so great . I told my mom that we should go to the store and buy some Reeses. When there’s only a couple more Reese’s I go secretly and get Reese’s and put them in the cart. I strongly believe that Reese’s are the best candy. I think that you need to go to Walmart to get Reese’s because they are the best candy in the world and you need to get them! So I hope that you feel the same way about Reese’s. There is no doubt, I strongly believe that Reese’s candy is the best.

Science – Energy

This week the students have been working on what happens to energy when two things collide. Energy can be transferred from one object to another and change the object’s motion.

We had a visit this week from DTE. They presented the Think Energy program to go along with our science.

Weekly Reading Homework

The fourth grade students will bring home a weekly reading homework page and a reference sheet today. The reference sheet needs to stay at home. I will put a copy on my blog of both sheets. Each student needs to choose a strategy for Monday through Thursday and write about that strategy on their worksheet. They are also filling out how many pages and the number of minutes they read. The log must be turned in on Friday with a parent signature.
