Educational Update # 11
Week of November 13 - 17, 2017
Another Thanksgiving is almost upon us. Are you ready? Thanks for donating to the LSS Can drive to benefit local food pantries. All items will be dropped off to the food pantries early next week.
Fourth grade students watched the Drama Club performance yesterday (“Annie”). There will be an Electricity Workshop on Monday for all 4th graders sponsored by UNITIL.
The first round of parent/teacher conferences has been completed. Thanks for meeting with me in the last 2 weeks. If you have any further questions or comments, please let me know.
The unit 2 math test was given on Tuesday and Wednesday. Unit 3 in Everyday Math consists of fraction and decimal concepts.
The book report project for the month of November will be to design a trading card (on the athlete from the book). Details were discussed with the students this week. The project is due on November 28th.
I’d like to finish the geology unit in the next 2 weeks. We conducted experiments on weathering, erosion, and deposition this week. We also looked at ways that rivers and streams significantly change the surface of the land.
Students had to “Disguise a Turkey” during writing this week. Great job on this activity!
The 4th Grade Snowsports Passport is not on sale yet. I will continue to keep you posted. In the meantime, resorts are starting to open up. Get those skis tuned up and ready to go!
There will be a Thanksgiving STEM on Tuesday afternoon.
All three reading groups will begin a new chapter book when we return from vacation on the 27th.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving vacation. Enjoy the time with friends and family.
