We also started our last novel of 4th grade. Joshua’s Song is historical fiction and takes place in Boston in 1919. The students will be reading, recording their thinking, and looking for new vocabulary. They will also practice “point of view” by writing journal entries from Joshua’s perspective. This novel is a favorite of mine because of the local history and familiar setting.
This Wednesday is an early release day for Foster families to stroll in the square and see posters from each class with examples of how we exercised our minds and bodies this year. Families are also invited to gather at the bathing beach from 3-5 pm. I’ll will let you know next week where our 4M poster will be hanging.
The 4th grade Physics Olympics will be held on Tuesday, June 16th. This is a full day of science- related challenges that students will complete through teamwork and creative thinking. I need at least 10 volunteers from 4M in order for the day to be successful. Please sign your name in the comment section below if you can help out on June 16th from 9:00 – 1:00. Thank you!
Thanks to Josh’s mom and sister for helping with math games today!
