A Big Bite

The 4th grade TEAM! Mrs. Williams, Miss Farrell, Mrs. Adams and Mrs. Merten!

It was another busy week in Room 23!  Open House was a big success and it was great to see so many families.  As promised, you are all on "the blog."  You were able to see the terrariums on Thursday night and we were lucky enough to have Mrs. K take pictures of us assembling them with Mrs. Merten's class.  It was a fun learning experience.
We have been finishing up the launching unit of reader's workshop and are really getting into the narrative writing unit.  In math, we are adding and subtracting problems with and without regrouping.  Knowing addition and subtraction facts will make solving problems easier, especially when tackling multi step word problems.  Using latitude and longitude to find exact locations on a map is a new skill for 4th graders and can be challenging at first.  With more practice, I am certain that we will master this skill and become better at finding locations than the GPS systems on our electronic devices.  
If you did not yet sign up for a conference, there are still plenty of slots left.  Click here to go to the Signup Genius webpage.
We celebrated World Smile Day and Dance Party Friday by dancing to Happy by Pharrell Williams and everyone wore a smiley face sticker on their shirt, hand or face.  We also laughed a lot today, which made the smiles easy to come by.  Or maybe it is because we have fun together when we are learning. :)
Have a great weekend!
Mrs. Williams
