Update 10/13

Hello All!

Thanks for checking in. We had a fabulous week here in 4th Grade. Although it was ITBS Testing week, students showed impressive stamina and dedication! I was thoroughly impressed by their hard work and I look forward to sharing their scores with you during conferences in November.

Here’s what we’ve been learning:

In Social Studies, we started our fun Geography unit. Students learned about the 5 themes of geography and made beautiful foldables to represent their learning. You can see their work hanging in our classroom, so stop on by. We also discussed maps and globes and will continue to explore geography concepts.

We are hoping to receive books from King Country Library soon so that Global Reading Challenge participants can begin reading. Thank you so much for your patience and dedication. Feel free to email me or Ms. Heline (kheline@stmadsophie.org) with any questions.

Do you have any plans for this Friday night? Join SMS staff and parents for the Auction Kick Off Party at 7pm on 10/14! Admission is a $25 bottle of wine or giftcard (each). I hope to see you there!

Our first field trip to the Washington Corn Maze is next Thursday. Students should wear weather appropriate clothes and shoes, but still be in uniform, please. I will send an email out to all drivers with more information. Thanks!

We had an AMAZING hour of STEM stations this week! Below are pictures of activities students were able to do! Enjoy.

 

Have a safe, productive weekend!
