Thank goodness that Spring has finally arrived. It is so nice to be able to go outside and enjoy the nice weather. But knowing the weather in Utah it could be spring one day, and back to winter the following day.
Our P.E. program is quickly approaching its end. We have had fun doing this new program and as 4th grade teachers we are very appreciative for your support at home. We will wrap up recording the passports by April 16th. We will then send our data into the STEPS program and see what rewards we can achieve at the state level. Hopefully, along the way, your child has learned the importance of keeping active and eating the right foods. Please encourage this behavior throughout the rest of the year, and perhaps, this may become a lifetime habit.
We are wrapping up our science lessons this month. Your child should know about the rock cycle, the water cycle, important facts about the weather, the different types of soil, working with fossils, and the different biomes and habitats of Utah. The science curriculum for 4th grade is a very exciting one and the students seem to enjoy learning about the different concepts.
Math should see us wrapping up our study of fractions. We will have learned how to subtract and add fractions with like and unlike denominators. We will have learned how to reduce fractions into the lowest terms. We will also have learned the relationship between fractions and decimals. Hopefully, we will be ready for the SAGE assessment the end of this month and the first part of May.
Again thank you for your continued support. We do appreciate it so much.
Yours truly from your 4th grade teachers.
