A Big Bite

We have been very busy in room 23! It is hard to believe that 4th grade is coming to an end. In Reader's Workshop, we have finished Charlotte's Web, by E.B. White, and celebrated the end of the book with Mrs. Merten's class. We watched the cartoon version of the film and ate snacks that you could find at a fair. Students had caramel apples, pie, cotton candy, popcorn and even corn on the cob! The movie was different from the book, very different! We will be setting summer reading goals soon, and are close to our goal of 1,000 boooks read this year. In writer's workshop we have been focusing on free verse poetry and completing the last district writing prompt of the year. We are all looking forward to having our parents in for the Poetry Coffeehouse on June, 7th. The math MCAS is over! All of the preparation that we have been doing sure has helped! In science, we have been really rolling along with magnetism and electricity. This is a discovery unit, where we try to figure out how to compete the tasks on our own. It's a lot like Survivor! In social studies, we have finished learning about the west and are completing our tour of the US, in the southwest. The southwest is a very interesting place. Next Tuesday is Tie-dye Tuesday and we will be tying our shirts this Friday! We will wear our shirts at the coffeehouse and for Sports Day. Mrs. Williams says that we are more and more like 5th graders everyday!
