Happy Halloween!


Can you believe it’s already Halloween!? It feels like we just had our first day of Fourth Grade yesterday! Students have been buzzing with excitement all week about coming to school in their costumes on Monday and what candy they hope to get while trick or treating. We hope the Fourth Graders enjoy the Halloween Carnival festivities and all the fun student/faculty costumes!


In writing, Fourth Graders are continuing to focus on writing news reports by pinpointing dramatic events that are worth writing about. The most important part of drafting a news story is making sure the reader is engaged in the topic! So far, our journalists have enjoyed reporting on Picture Day, the upcoming Halloween Carnival, and after-school activities! We can’t wait to see how our reporters’ projects come along soon.


Fourth Grade mathematicians have spent most of the first trimester learning about fractions, equivalent fractions, improper fractions, and mixed numbers. We recently started a new unit in math where we are learning to multiply fractions and whole numbers using expressions and diagrams. Students are excelling in this area and are excited to move forward to learn more methods for solving and creating equations!
