What a great day for Field Day! It was warm out for some of the games, but then everyone cooled off with the water activities. Everyone seemed to have a great time. Pictures will be posted later today and tomorrow.

We're on the final count down, and we want to go out strong! Our test on ecosystems will be tomorrow in science, and adaptations will be tested Thursday. Students have study guide packets and their text book to study from, and an ecosystems quizlet. In math we will have a test on measurement on Wednesday. It will cover customary and metric measurement. Practice drawing Gallon Land. Ask your student to explain: King Henry Died by Drinking Chocolate Milk. We will have a test on events leading up to the Civil War in social studies tomorrow.

Life after the Milestones...

The Milestones testing is behind us. Now we can put our energy into learning our remaining fourth grade standards! There are many end-of-year activities on the horizon as well.
Today we finished line plots in math, and will be continuing with measurement. In writing, students will be crafting a research paper on an animal. We are learning about Westward Expansion in social studies. In science we are studying the transfer of energy in ecosystems, and adaptations.

We will have a visit from Wellstar on 4/26. The topic will be: Get Fit! This link has helpful health information regarding children and fitness: 

Mr. Golden has asked us to share the following message:

We will be testing point of view tomorrow in reading. Your child should be able to tell you key words that let you know a passage is being told from First Person -ex:I, me, my. Or Third Person -ex: They, he, she; and the difference between Third Person Limited and Third Person Omniscient.

We have finished our fractions unit in math, and will be working more with decimals, then move on to geometry.

In ELA we are working on reading paired texts, and writing a constructed response to answer related questions, or to compare the passages.

DON'T FORGET! Our field trip to the Cobb Youth Museum this Thursday.

Our weekly math skills quiz will be on Friday. The vocabulary quiz on last week's spelling words will be on Friday; students will complete sentences using the correct vocabulary word. There is a quizlet link to use for practice on Mrs. Sattelmeier's blog (prefixes -co_). Our bi-weekly grammar quiz will be on Friday during language arts.

No school next week! Milestones will begin the Tuesday after we return from spring break. It's extremely important for our students to get a good rest the night before testing, have a healthy breakfast, and be on time!

Please remind your child of the important role being an active listener plays in their learning.

Greetings from room 308, Earth, the third terrestrial planet from the sun, in the Milky Way Galaxy. We've been learning about the differences between stars and planets, how advances in technology have impacted what we know about space, and we're continuing with moon phases.
In reading, we have been learning about the characteristics of, and differences between, Prose, Poetry, and Drama. We are learning different types of poetry. Students will be writing some poetry of their own! In language arts, we've been learning about figurative language. Hyperbole, simile, personification, metaphor, and idioms. Students were encouraged to look for key words, ex: simile - comparing two things using like or as; metaphor - comparing two things using words such as: is, or was. We have been working on adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers, and turning an improper fraction into a mixed number. Our test on fractions will be this Friday.
We did spelling this week, so we will be doing grammar during morning work, and for homework, next week. Our spelling words can also be found on the Spelling City link on Mrs. Sattelmeier's blog

There are several students who consistently forget to bring a snack. We share what we have, but we often run out. Please encourage your child to pack their snack the night before.

We are lucky to have access to computers from laptop carts, and some I-pads. Unfortunately, many students have lost or broken their earbuds or headphones they brought at the beginning of the year. We have headphones for our classroom computers, but frequently come up short when students need to listen to something individually. Please check with your child to see if they need to get new earbuds.
