And if you’re looking for an easy way to ask for a pledge, create your very own Student Star Video by uploading a photo of your student to funrun.com. It’s a fun movie trailer starring your child! You can share it on email or social media to ask for a pledge.
Thank you again for helping our class.

* Please go to our class pledge page and make a pledge and ask family and friends to make pledges to help our school!!! More pledges we get the bigger the reward for the class!!! Let's show how AWESOME OUR FOURTH GRADE CLASS IS!!!!!
Week of March 20-24:
Math: The students did a fantastic job on the Decimals test!!!! We started measurement. Please keep studying study guide at home since the students are going to need to know how to convert and will not have a chart with them. Please keep checking the calendar for quizzes, tests, and HW.
VA Studies: We watched the scenes from "Remember the Titans" and I am super impressed with the discussion the class had about their feelings, what they saw, why it was that way, how people could do that, and being able to step in the characters shoes and have empathy for what our country went through. The test on this unit will be on Friday, March 24!
Reading/Writing: The class did an AMAZING job on their cause and effect test!!! We had a class average of 95%!!!! I could not be more proud of all of them. We are starting to work on compare and contrast. We will be comparing and contrasting historical figures, stories, and even each other. We will be working on this unit for about a week and half 2 weeks, and then we will work on inferencing. Moving on to writing we are finishing our advertisements (which are looking awesome!) and then going into researching.
Science: We are talking about Ecosystems. Probably starting next week or the week after students will be picking an animal and describing its role in a food chain/web and how will the chain be affected if the animal dies off or moves to a different area.
Other: Any important dates/homework are posted on the calendar for the week. Please check it daily to find out what is going on in class, plus what the homework is for each night! Just click on the link for each date to get a description of what is due or what is on the test/quiz for that day.
