“We are learning about fractions.”- Alana
“We learned you can get food from plants. They are natural resources.” – Ben
“We read Bear Goes Over the Mountain.”- Jaide
“We are writing a book review.”- Keller
This week our reading focus was on comparing and contrasting. We did a reader’s theater based off the song The Bear Went Over the Mountain. The next three weeks we will be focusing on making connections. In math, we worked on fractions of a set and fair share problems. We will finish up this unit next week and take our Unit test next Friday. In science, we learned about natural resources. Next week we will focus on the R’s (reduce, reuse and recycle). The following week we will start our economics unit. Throughout the rest of the fourth quarter, I will be doing bi-weekly news letters. If you have any questions in between about what we are learning, please let me know.
Reminder- Tuesday, April 25th is our field trip to Mount Vernon. Please make sure your child arrives to school on time as we will be leaving school by 9:15am. Student may bring a small disposable water bottle that is labeled with their name. Please wear sneakers and your Penn T-shirt (if possible). Remember we will be eating lunch when we get back around 1:30, so please eat a big breakfast. Be ready to learn and have a great time!
