Ms. Reidy's Fourth Grade
We are a fourth grade class in Iowa gearing up for a great new adventure in learning. This year we will be using our blog to share what we are doing each week, along with thoughts about books we read and the writing we have done. Be sure to keep checking in to see what we are up to!
The time really got away from us and Mrs. Grover was gone so we haven't had a chance to post what all we have been up to.
Here is a quick update:
In math we learned about graphing and data collection. We surveyed the class and made several graphs. We even used the site Create A Graph to help us build one of our graphs. We have started some review of multiplication.
In reading we have been focusing on mysteries. We continue to do the Daily 3. We read at least 25 minutes each day plus our nightly 20 minutes. Our class loves to read!
In science we continue to study animals. We took a field trip to Fontana Park and did some hands on work with birds and learned about how their different parts are adaptations that help them to survive. We also got to look at amphibians like the tiger salamander, a toad as well as a couple reptiles (a snake and a very friendly box turtle).
We've been learning all about the Northeast region in Social Studies. We wrote our first pen pal letters and sent them off to our friends in California. We can't wait to hear back from them.
It has been a busy couple of weeks and we are excited to start sharing more on our individual blogs. Check in soon for our mystery reviews.
About the Blogger
I love to read! My favorite books are mysteries and suspense stories, but I also enjoy historical fiction. Some of my favorite pastimes include spending time with my family and working on our class website. I am really excited about using this new tool in our classroom to help share what we are learning with our families and others.
