What a great week! We enjoyed a pizza party for box tops, thanks to Mrs. Anderson for organizing it! We learned a little bit about table manners this week from The Prestons. We enjoyed a fun game of kickball with other 4th grade classes, so all in all a great week!
Math: After completing our STAAR test, we have jumped right into BizWorld. The class has been divided up into four different companies that will be producing bracelets to sell to the second graders. Each student has a job that they have applied for whether it be CEO, VP of Finance, VP of Design, VP of Manufacturing, or VP of Marketing. They have come up with a business plan and a pitch to ask the Venture Capitalists to buy stock in their company. They are quickly realizing the necessity of capital when starting up a company! We will continue to work on this project next week.
Writing: We has been continuing their work on their poems this week and have started their Ode to Armstrong. It has been wonderful to see Armstrong through their eyes and I hope you enjoy these odes when they are presented on the last week of school.
Reading: We have been using our own books to study characters.
Science: We have continued learning about light energy in addition to exploring magnetism.
Social Studies: The class has been continuing to study about the cattle drives of Texas.
