Dear Grade Four Families,
Happy New Year! I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas holiday with your family. It definitely was a different type of celebration this year with more zoom calls, FaceTime, and text messages. Thank goodness for technology! It’s sure was nice to take a break from the busyness of life, to be with people we love, and to feast on all the delicious food and treats! May this new year bring you joy, happiness, and good health!
…and now, back to the busyness of our regular routine!
I will begin preparing the students for the FSA (Foundations Skills Assessment). We will be writing several practice exams over the next few weeks. We will be writing the FSA during the month of February. If possible, please avoid booking doctor and dentist appointments during school hours in February. If you have any appointments already booked, please let me know as soon as possible, and I will try to work around it. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
I have added a new class to Google Classroom. It’s called “Announcements and Homework.” (Students will join the class tomorrow morning). I will be posting the morning announcements and the daily homework on it. Please check it everyday to be in the loop with your child’s assignments.
Christian Education – Parables and how to use a bible
Math – money (adding coins, making change)
Language Arts – reading comprehension, using text evidence to support answers, Four Square Writing (write 5 paragraphs)
Science – changing states of matter
Social Studies – First Nations and European Encounters
Career Education – Famous models that exhibit Core Competencies
Growth Mindset – I don’t let setbacks keep me from accomplishing goals
Art – Lego Creations and Lego Self-Portrait
