Math

The students learned about US standard measurement this past week.  They learned to convert the measurements into different units.  For example, how 10 cups = how many pints.  On Friday they took a short open note quick on US standard measurement.  The last few days of school will be spent reviewing concepts from the year and introducing some 5th grade topics.

Reading and Writing

This week we wrapped up our poetry unit.  The students finished their poem books.  The students will have an opportunity to read them to the class next week.  Next week the students will be writing about grown up rules.  It will be like a sequel to the book The Secret Knowledge of Grown-up by David Winienski.  

Social Studies

The students are still continuing the Lewis and Clark simulation.  We will finish this next week.  It is great to see the students using books to learn more information for their different tasks.  The final week of school we will have a Lewis and Clark Immersion Day.   There will be different activities the students rotate to throughout the morning.
