Although our week was a short one, we have been very busy in 4th grade! We have wrapped up both our nonfiction text structure study and our expository essay in language arts, and we have completed several activities in science all while learning about animal and plant adaptations. We have worked hard and are looking forward to this long weekend before setting sail on our Cruise Write Along week next week!
CRUISE WRITE ALONG
We have a fun week planned for the students. In order to make this a memorable experience, our classroom has been transformed into a cruise ship and beach theme. Thank you to Ms. Hennessey, Ms. Allison, Dr. Smith, and Ms. Steinheider for helping to decorate. Students may bring beach towels, low sitting beach chairs, and inflated floats on Monday, April 2nd to use while participating in our ship’s activities. Please make sure everything is labeled so that it may be returned to the rightful owner. Our room moms have provided Cabana snacks for the week, but students are welcome to bring their own snacks from home. It's going to be fun!
Each day will be a theme dress up day.
Monday - hat day
Tuesday - tropical wear day (no swimsuits)
Wednesday - sunglasses day
Thursday - flip flop day
The final week of our nonfiction reading logs will be due on Friday, April 6th.
Our field trip to the Meadows Center will be on Friday, April 6th. Students will need to bring a completely disposable sack lunch (including drinks). Please pack snacks separately from lunch as we will have snack before we leave school at 9:30.
