Weekly Update - March 22, 2015

Dear Fourth Grade Parents,

Upcoming Dates:

Tuesday, March 24–Field Trip to Field Museum to see Viking Exhibit–Please send your students with their Ventra cards, if they have them, as we will be taking public transportation.  They will also need an easily transportable snack and should dress for lakefront weather, as it is supposed to be very cool that day.

March 30 – April 6–Spring Break–NO SCHOOL

In the Classroom:

We continued our work with the Norse Myths and language arts, with further exploration of verb tenses and parts of speech, culminating in the students learning basic diagramming of sentences.  They wrote original, lively paragraphs, consciously focusing on creatively incorporating adverbs, adjectives and prepositional phrases, in order to be as descriptive as possible in their retelling of stories. Their enthusiasm and fascination for the Norse Myths has not waned!  We will finish this block this coming week and begin to work on preparing for the class play, so stay tuned for more on that!

With warm regards,

Mary Spalding
