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).

What's Happening in
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.

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!
We are so excited for this school year to begin. We hope you are all rested and enjoyed time with each other. We have confidence in our incredible 4th grade team, and cannot wait to get to know your child better. Our goal is to continue to uphold the mission and philosophy of the school by engaging students in meaningful learning experiences and inspiring the joy of learning! Please join us for an informational meeting on August 30th, 2018 at 6 pm to learn more about how 4th grade will work. We look forward to seeing you then.
Please continue to encourage your child to read on their own, and be sure to practice multiplication facts! If you have any questions or concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
