Grade 4 - January 18 / 2019

REMINDERS

A small group of students are still not in black dress shoes (or have yet to bring them back from the break). Please help to remind your child to bring their black dress shoes to school for everyday use.


HIGHLIGHTS

Math

Next week we will continue to explore measurement with a focus on perimeter and an introduction to area.

Literacy

We will continue to read and write poetry, learning about the tools and elements of poetry. For example, the students will practice using their senses to create imagery. The students will continue to read their independent novel for our “Recommended Reading” project.

Unit

In preparation for the summative assessment, the students will inquire into how light and sound affect their daily lives in both positive and negative ways. You can support your child’s learning by talking to them about ways you may observe or experience light and sound (e.g. art, music, light and noise pollution, etc.)

Art

This week in Art, the Grade 4s were able to experiment with their pinhole cameras for the last time. They used different exposure times depending on the sun and developed their photographs in the dark room.
