Looking Back

Last week we finished Phase 2 of Deck the Halls. It is very cheerful down our hall.

 

 

Several students created stories and slide presentations to share with the class. They worked on these projects on their own time.

Deck the Halls

Once again the 4th grade hallway is beginning to look festive. The Target dog has plugged in the holiday lights.

Now we would like to wrap our lockers in holiday wrapping paper. We are asking each student to cut a piece of holiday wrapping paper that is 10 inches wide and 59 inches long. Please bring it in on Monday. Then we will tape it to their locker. Having the student work on measuring the paper is another way to practice a math skill. Here is a sample of last year’s lockers.

Fossils

We have been exploring fossils in science. There are several songs and videos to help the students understand the different types of fossils and what we can learn from them.
