Update 10/23

Happy Sunday, 4th Grade Families!

I hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend and are ready for another great week of learning. Here are some highlights from last week:

In Math, students continue to work on representing and analyzing data. They learned that to analyze means to look at closely and take apart. Through analyzing, students were able to find the median, mode and outlier of data sets!

In Religion, students also did some analyzing, but this time with the St. Francis prayer. By breaking the prayer apart, students were able to better understand what the prayer means and what we are asking of God when we pray it. It was challenging for the class, but with some time, they were able to make the connections!

In Social Studies, we have excitedly been exploring geography concepts such as maps, cardinal directions, and finally, latitude and longitude. We also began the exciting process of studying our very own state!

Students were able to identify major roads, highways, parks, bodies of water and cities.

As many of you know, we had to cancel our field trip to the Corn Maze last minute due to weather. The field trip has been rescheduled for Wednesday, Oct 26 at 10:15. Most of the original drivers are able to attend, but if you’re interested in coming along this time, please let me know! We could always use more chaperone and drivers.
