Fourth Grade Rocks!!!!!!!!
Welcome to fourth grade, a very enjoyable year! I am one of Mr. Edwards' fourth graders from last year, here to give you a little preview of next year. Mr. Edwards is a FANTABULOUS teacher because he has a sense of humor and makes learning always fun!! While reading this, you will learn all about a few great experiences: a field trip to The Grove and our unit on colonies!
Around the middle of our fourth grade year, we studied the 13 American colonies, pieces of land along the east coast such as New Jersey, Delaware, Virginia, Georgia and nine others. I enjoyed this unit partly because we each were assigned a colony to learn about either with a partner or by yourself. We also had the opportunity to learn about something different than our classmates and then share the interesting facts that we worked hard on learning. I also liked that we could share knowledge online and use pictures to brighten and color each of our Keynote slides in our online presentation. While studying colonies, I learned information about Virginia's government, notable people industry and way of life.
Our second field trip of the year was to The Grove. It is a school, but it is only a one-room schoolhouse like the ones in the mid-1800's! It had a blackboard, wooden desks, a woodburning stove and even a dunce cap! I had fun there because we were taught what school was like for children our age back then (you are lucky to be in our time) and although I had read about school life in the old days, it was much different to experience it while you were there. It gave our class and understanding of how lucky we are to live right here, right now.
You will have so much fun learning, growing and improving in Mr. Edwards' fourth grade! Enjoy!
