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!
What we've been up to
We're happy to see you again. Quadrangles, parallelograms and other 2D shapes are things we've been working with in math. We made shapes with our straws and pipe cleaners. We've been learning about angles. We learned that vertices are points that connect the sides of a shape.
We learned with Bill Nye the science guy about amphibians, birds, mammals and reptiles. We are learning the characteristics of these groups. In science we have been writing animal fact cards to prepare for when we write our animal reports.
We are reading Nightmare at the Book Fair out loud. It is a good book. Each of us now have made goals for our September reading.
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.
