Happy 1st Week of Advent, everyone!

We have had a very busy week! Thank you so much for all who attended St. Nick Night yesterday. It is always a great way to start off the Christmas season, and how cute were those 4th Graders?! I am so proud to be their teacher.

Here’s what we’ve been learning recently: 

In Math, we have moved on to the much awaited skill of long division!! It’s a tough chapter, but students started off with a generally positive attitude and will keep practicing their skills next week! The math homework next week will be a division packet.

In Science, we have started a unit on Energy! We are using an interactive science notebook. Next week, students will get to explore circuits and electrical energy! I can’t wait!

In Religion, students have been reflecting on Advent and the Life of Jesus. We have also set up our Nativity Scene and our Advent candles in the window!

We had a great time learning the basics of programming and algorithms during STEM time this week. I pulled some great resources from this website all about Computer Science Education Week, which starts on Dec 5th! We will definitely be participating! I have a great time learning new skills alongside the students.

Enjoy your weekend! I am flying off to Boise for a quick trip to visit friends. Looking forward to hearing about your child’s weekend as well.
