The end of the year is starting to feel real around here, but we are moving on as fast as ever and working very hard to have a successful end to 4th grade!
We have been studying poetry this week, looking at things like stanzas, rhyme scheme, meter, mood and theme. The kids have had a great time and did a pretty good job. We even found out that we have some poets in our classroom!
Writing took a back seat again this week so we could present our biographies.
The class spent this week locking down the concept of math with mixed numbers, and they did a really good job. I was very impressed at how well they grasped this difficult set of concepts!
We started a new unit in science, one where we will study soil, rocks, and land forms. It was all about soil this week
The class will be moving on to studying government soon, so we looked at what the government's role in the economy is. What kinds of services do they provide, and what are taxes used for?
