What's Happening in

Learning in Full Swing!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

May is a very busy month here in 4th grade! We are preparing for two amazing field trips. One will enhance student knowledge about California Native Americans and the other will allow the students to explore the great outdoors and get the chance to appreciate nature.

We welcome back Mrs. Frumerman from maternity leave and thank Mrs. Sweeney from the bottom of our hearts for her service to our 4th grade classroom!

We will continue to learn about fractions in math and  energy in science. We have also started reading the book Bud not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis. The students are really enjoying Bud’s charismatic nature and his humorous view on the world. We are having so much fun, and we look forward to all that May has in store! 

4th Grade Missions

4th Grade finished up their Mission Projects this past month and we couldn’t be more proud of all their hard work!

Each student created a project, wrote a research report, and completed a presentation about a California Mission. We invited the NDV community to come view our hard work during a presentation hour in our auditorium.

We concluded our Mission work by visiting Mission San Francisco de Asis and enjoying a picnic lunch in Mission Delores park. Check out our fun trip and pictures from our Presentations:


4th Grade Explorers

4th Graders are busy explorers in their community. We’ve traveled to the Asian Art Museum to hear delightful stories from the past. We stepped into our own neighborhood: Chinatown! We learned so much about it’s rich history. California history is an important part of 4th Grade so we recently visited the Wells Fargo History Museum to discover more about the gold rush! Lastly, we put on our scientist hats with visits from Edmo and Tree Frog Trek.

Fourth graders have been hard at work this past month! Working diligently in all subjects and growing as lifelong learners. We have started learning more about area and perimeter in math, and are currently reading Roald Dahl’s book The Witches. In Science, we can identify types of rocks and are even working on play all about rocks! We can’t wait to perform this play next month. In Social Studies, we’ve finished up a unit on California’s geography and are beginning to learn about California’s first people. Check out our beautiful paintings and writings about John Muir and our 4th grade tips on how to recognize Witches (based on our current novel study).

We have had a great September in 4th grade! We have been busy learning more about place value, studying rocks, discovering more about our great state of California, becoming noun experts and enjoying the book Because of Winn Dixie. We can’t wait to see what October has in store for our learning!

As the school year progresses, we have had many conversations about how to be responsible citizens. Classroom jobs teach us how to be active, responsible citizens in our classroom, but we are also learning about ways we can be active, responsible citizens in our city and world. Our very own 4th grader Samantha Shapiro’s poster was selected as a winner for the Global Climate Action Summit through SF environment. We are so proud of her and our class as they brainstormed and presented ideas of how we can take better care of our environment. We are truly setting the example of responsible citizens who care for their personal and global environment.

Working Hard!

4th grade has been very busy getting settled into the new school year. We have worked together to build a classroom constitution for the year and discussed what friendship looks like in 4th grade.

In math we’ve begun talking about place value in base ten operations and started using the writing process as we further develop our writing skills. In September we will begin our novel study, Because of Winn Dixie by Kate DiCamillo and we can’t wait to dive into reading!

We can’t wait to continue sharing with you our 4th grade journey!
