Look up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! Is that a jet? No, it's our 4th grade superheros! We have worked hard this week on several projects.
We started off the week with a snowball fight. We crumpled up colored pieces of paper and threw them at each other as if they were snowballs. Whatever color we ended up with was the the table group we get to sit at. Having a snowball fight helped us feel a lot cooler in this hot weather!
We got to know each other by creating a Who Am I? poster. We gave 4 clues about each of us to help you guess who the picture was. If you didn't guess by the last clue, we gave you the answer. We'll hang these projects up on our bulletin board. Come to our open house on Wednesday, September 14 to check them out.
In order to get ready for our first Mystery Skype, we've been learning about the 50 states. We started off with a word search to try and find the names of all 50 states.
In math we got started on our Xtramath. This is a website we can use to practice our basic math facts. If we don't get a time in class to practice our facts, we can do it at home as well. A link to the website is under the For Students tab. In math we also took a pretest on Place Value. This will help Mr. Thomas know who needs extra help learning about Place Value. We also decorated the cover of our Interactive Math Notebook.
When we went to the computer lab this week we created our computer logins and our Google accounts. We'll use those each week as we start doing more on the computers.
