Our class has had a great week! On Friday, Caroline read us a book about Cleopatra, and one about Pocahontas. We love school but we are all getting anxious about summer break!
We are almost done with our unit on angles and 2D shapes. This week Michael taught us about circles, and how to find the perimeter and area of them. Next Monday or Tuesday we will be taking the post assessment, seeing this is our third unit. We are almost done with fourth grade!
Our class has still been doing our Roald Dahl book club. Some people has started to finish their books! Now they are picking another book of the four. The books are Charlie and the Chocolate factory, Matilda, Boy, George’s Marvelous Medicine, Fantastic Mr. Fox, BFG, and James and the Giant Peach.
We just finished our literary essays on the book Fox by Margaret Wild and Ron Brooks. In this book we had to write an essay on a character. Ms. Bierbower did the character dog the class had to do either the character Fox who was the bad guy or magpie who was the victim. The book was really good and we enjoyed it!
The research projects have started the second week! The Climate change group is starting to write their proposal for the Model UN. The endangered animals group has been studying the animal that they got assigned, and answering questions. Last but not least, the tech effect group has been researching the apps, and writing an essay about what the effects are. All of us are enjoying our topics!
We are nearing the end of the school year and everyone is excited we are starting to start up our last units and we are all very very excited for summer!!!
