As one door closes, another door opens! We are now moving on to our next big project…. The Invention Convention! A letter went home this week with a general overview of the parts of the project. As with the Living History Museum, the project will be broken into parts and some will be completed in school and some at home. An inventor looks at the problems in the world and tries to find a good solution. Students should start looking around at things that could be done more efficiently. Could an invention make something easier to do?
In reading this week we focused on comparing and contrasting the way authors organize information in non-fiction texts. We also reviewed parts of speech, verb tenses and figurative language.
In math, we are completing Unit 7 and will have a test on Wednesday. A study guide will go home on Monday.
In 4th grade students are required to submit a physical report from their doctor. Please send in the report as soon as possible to Mrs. Vingeau, our school nurse.
We will be attending the Scholastic Book Fair on Monday, April 10th from 11:30 - 12:00.
