Strumming in Fourth!

Fourth Grade scholars continued studying topics in their new science unit on the “Sun, Moon and Stars!” This week we began to study the moon phases, focusing particularly on the daytime moon. As a class, we went outdoors to report what we observed.  Scholars used their knowledge of cardinal directions to describe the moon’s location.  As a class, we created a moon calendar which will track our future findings!  


As a class, we have been studying a variety of poems.  This week Fourth Graders took the poem entitled “A Minor Bird” by Robert Frost and wrote it out in cursive.  Scholars focused on spacing, capitalization, and punctuation in the stanzas of the poem, using the Handwriting Without Tears cursive guide.  

Fourth Grade Reminders

  • As our days become warmer, students are hydrating throughout the day. Please make sure your Fourth Grade student is coming to school with a water bottle to refill.  
  • Please remind your Fourth Grade student to send back their silver folder each day.
