our Power-Up 2.0 Electric Paper Airplane project. From these close readings students will use topic specific vocabulary in order to produce an Explanatory writing sample that will detail how the airplanes flew and what steps were taken to improve the flights. We have also started Literature Circles with works of realistic fiction related to our upcoming Colonial America Unit. There is a new Independent Reading Project posted in Google Classroom, please check it out. I will know by Friday, October 26 what book students will be reading .  

Math: Students working in the grade four Everyday Math Program have recently started a unit on multiplication and geometry.

This unit will include the identification of factor pairs, multiples, prime and composite numbers, and later in the unit, the classification of triangles, and quadrilaterals. (Check Mr. Chapman’s news for Grade 5 math news).

Science: We recently finished our investigation of circuits. For our current investigation students will be using the force, of magnetism that is. This investigation will include some great hands on activities related to the properties of magnets, and magnetic fields, which will prepare us for Investigation 3: Electromagnets.

Social Studies: On Monday, October 29 we will kick off our long term Colonial America unit. The kids are really excited for this unit and we will be participating in a variety of fun and engaging projects related to Colonial America. A syllabus outlining the unit will be going home next week, and will be posted on Google Classroom. When our social studies unit begins we will alternate between science and social studies blocks.  

Genius Hour: We are three weeks into our first Genius Hour session, and the creative juices are really flowing. From T-Shirt Cannons, to Go-Karts, Robots, Homemade Dairy Free Ice Cream, the World’s Fluffiest Pancakes, and so many more, SCS 4-6 graders are having a great time planning, building, and modifying their projects. If you can, stop by on Friday afternoons from 1:30- 2:30 p.m. to experience our Geniuses at work
