We are Famous!!!

Who is winning????
This is serious business! Right?
Guess who thinks they are winning!
We spent the day at the Pavek Museum last week and learned about magnets and electricity!  We also learned about the radio and how the broadcasting business works.  There are more pictures to come.  I will also add the link to the live broadcasts once I figure out how to do it.  Sorry! Enjoy the pictures any way.

The new spelling list is out!!!!
The test is planned for April 2, 2012
The vocabulary on the test are all words the kids will find in a testing situation so it is very important they work on the list and the definitions.  Thanks for your help with this.  Mrs. Brown

Math Vocabulary:
Literacy Vocabulary:

Math packets are also due on Monday the 2nd of April!  I gave the entire packet so the kids would have to plan out how to accomplish the work before Monday.  (Life skills)  thank you for supporting this effort.

Biographies are still being worked on at school unless your child was asked specifically to take it home and work on it.  More information to come later in the week.

Math and Fieldtrips!!!!

We have started a new math unit!  Help is on the way! Take a look at:
Khan Academy!! Each student has their own account that you can access at home!  Take a look at it! It is free.

Also... this week we will be practicing testing strategies for the upcoming MCA tests.  More details to follow.

We also have a biography book report due in April.  The kids are creating a newspaper about their person of interest.  Ask your son or daughter who they have picked.  We have started the writing and research project at school.  You will see some of this work in the coming weeks....

One final word....
It is Spring, but.... we may still need to wear coats!  Please check the weather forecast so your child is prepared for the day!  Thanks.
Have a great week.  Mrs. Brown

Fourth Grade at Brimhall School

 Welcome to a normal day in room 118!  We always start the day with some kind of morning work.  On this particular day we were playing math games. This is one way we sharpen our math skills.  It is also fun to start the day with a good friend.

Gabe and Noah show us how it's done!

Here we have Jhaniya being her usual happy self!  Keep smiling Jhaniya!
