A Big Bite

Spring is here, even though it feels more like summer, but we are not complaining in room 23! We were able to enjoy our "penny recess," on Thursday, it was a glorious day. As always, we are busy in 4th grade. We completed the MCAS Long Composition test on Tuesday and will finish the Reading portion on Monday and Tuesday of next week. In writer's workshop we will turn our efforts toward poetry in anticipation of National Poetry month in April. Everyone has written poems based on the mythology theme and we will be writing limericks over the next few weeks. The Rock Poetry project has been assigned and will take place on Friday April 13th! We are finishing our unit on mythology in reader's workshop and many of us are enjoying a book group of The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. The Leprechaun speeches were great, everyone did an awesome job! We will begin to prepare for the math MCAS and are finishing chapter 9 on percentages and decimals. We have finished our study of clouds and wind and will be taking a test next week. Our journey across the USA continues in the Southeast. Students will be completing research on a national park of their choice in the southeast region and creating a passport of the park. I love the springtime in 4th grade, it is so much fun! We have many great programs and activities coming up in April, May and June, I can't wait!
Enjoy this beautiful weather.
