Class News, Grade 4

Dear Parents,

As we culminate the year, please be mindful that the kiddos will take their end of year assessments on states and capitals and state map identification. The window for them to begin testing opened today and will close on Friday, 7 June. They may take the two tests whenever they are ready, but will be only allowed to test ONCE. So tell them to make sure they are ready before they commit.

The kiddos did really well on their projects and many of them presented early. We just have a few kiddos left to present tomorrow. When trying to double the grade in Grade Speed, the doubled grade is not taking. I have reported the issue and will update the grade once the issue is resolved.

In math, we have been completing assignments in the class where children identity math in the real world. We will continue to “see” math in the real world and explore math through various games.
