Fourth grade was probably one of my favorite years ever! We did lots of blogging, reading and writing. We did a lot with the idea of simple machines and we also watch a lot of short, fun videos called Tim and Moby!
When we do blogging on our classroom blog it's REALLY fun. Some of what we blog about are assignments, and sometimes we blog about something that we came up with. It's also exiting to leave comments on other people's work, and it's even MORE exiting to get a comment back!
In fourth grade, we also do a lot of reading and writing! Some of the things we read are, Time for kids or Scholastic magazines or books like Shiloh and The Witches. Or a lot of times, we read our own free reading books, (there are lots of choices in our small "Library" in our classroom)
But my favorite thing to do in fourth grade is, WRITE!!! And that's lucky for me because here in fourth grade we do an ENORMOUS amount or writing! We write about provided writing prompts, like what's your favorite season and who's your superhero? We also write our blank books at the end of the year and illustrate them, which I'm sure you know is LOTS of fun! But the thing we do most is free writing, writing about anything you want. You choose your won topic or story!
We also do a lot of fun projects and stuff with simple machines. We studied about the six different types of simple machines (Lever pulley, inclined plane, screw, wheel and axle and the wedge.) Then we make our own simple machines and did a presentation in front of the class.
O.K., now here's a REALLY fun thing about 4th grade: Tim and Moby! I'll bet that you don't know what Tim and Moby is, do you? Well let me explain. Tim and Moby are short little "Movies" about, well about everything! Science, social studies, math, reading all sorts of things! We watch them frequently about stuff we just learned or about things that we are ABOUT to lean!
That was fourth grade, and it really WAS one of my favorite years EVER=http://
