As the snow melts off of the playground and out of our minds, fourth grade is ramping up for a strong final quarter.
Winter sports have ended. Students have more time to work on and complete their assignments. In math class we have really focused our efforts. The students are helping one another remember to do the following: 1) Carefully read the problems. 2) Decide how to find the answer that they are looking for. 3) Work the problem accurately. 4) Check their answers and 5) Double check their answers’ labels. With these, our math scores and our understanding are improving.
We continue to do a lot of reading. We recently finished reading Mister Popper’s Penguins and soon we will be wrapping up our next book Owls in the Family. Students will also be reading books of their own choosing for credit this quarter.
With the warmer weather we are all looking forward to more field trips and more playing outside, but let’s not forget that there is still a quarter of the school year left. Let’s finish the year strong!
