April 16th - 20th
Dear Fourth Grade Families,
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. Please note that payment for Reunion Ranch is now available on Skyward and was due last Monday, April 9th. Payment may still be made if needed. Reunion Ranch is our final field trip and annual end of year celebration. Students are able to play, run, and climb to their hearts content at this beautiful outdoor facility.
This is very busy week ahead. First off, Tuesday, April 17th, there will be a parent math meeting for anyone interested learning more about next year's various choices and what that means for students next year and beyond. Also, on Tuesday, students will enjoy a special shadow puppet presentation from a local performer. Third, we have our field trip the Alamo and ITC on Wednesday morning. We are leaving promptly at 7:30 and will return at 3:30. Please communicate all transportation methods via SMARTttag so I know how your child will be picked up when we return from the field trip on Wednesday.
In math this week, students will being topic 16, which focuses on personal financial literacy. Students will learn about spending, saving, & sharing, various ways to save, fixed vs variable expenses, and banks & other financial institutions.
In science this week, students will begin a new unit learning about life cycles, plant and animal adaptations, inherited traits, and learned behaviors. This week we are specifically focused on life cycles and the similarities and differences between various animals and plants. Students will learn about butterfly life cycles, mealworm life cycles, and compare life cycles between both plants and animals.
I hope everyone has a great week. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
