We are excited to welcome a new grade 4 girl from Red Deer Alberta.
I'm sure the kids have shared the exciting news with your. Next week we are welcoming another grade four girl who has just arrived in Canada from Syria. We have made cards for her and have learned the Arabic word for 'welcome'. We have also learned how to write the word in Arabic. This is the perfect class for our new student to settle in to because this particular group of kids are very kind-hearted, caring and supportive.
LA - in language arts we have begun a new novel study called Shiloh
MATH - we are reviewing our problem solving skills in preparation for the grade 4 Fundamental Skills Assessment which will be coming up in the next couple of weeks. We are also working on 3 and 4 digit subtraction with regrouping.
SCIENCE - I joined an on-line group called "Mystery Science". They have some really wonderful hands on experiments with videos and really good information. We work through the experiments using the scientific method. These experiments are very engaging and address 21st century curriculum.
TODAY A LARGE PACKAGE OF FORMS AND INFORMATION RE: OUR SKIING SESSIONS CAME HOME. Please take time to read them carefully. Several of the forms need to be filled out and sent back with some very specific information. I then forward the information to the ski hill so they can have the equipment ready for the kids when we arrive. Please choose your ski package and return all forms, with payment, to me by Friday, Jan. 22.
If you have any questions or comments please phone me at the school or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
