March Madness

It's March and we're going MAD!  What a busy and long month March can be.  Today, we took a trip to the Kilton Library.  Amber, the children's librarian. read us From Dawn till Dusk by Natalie Kinsey-Warnock.  We've also been reading Roald Dahl books in class.  We just finished Matilda and we're now reading Fantastic Mr. Fox.  We are focusing on improving comprehension, expression in reading, and literary elements.

In math, we've been studying fractions.  Today we learned how to take a mixed number and convert it into an improper fraction.  Khan Academy has been helping us with our lessons.

We're studying weather in science.  Right now, we are learning about thermometers and temperature.   We've also read about weath and made quizzes to test our learning. In addition to weather, our trout eggs have arrived.  They are being housed in Miss Renehan's room.  We'll be observing the eggs later in the week.

We'll be embarking on our medieval unit soon.  Calling all parents!!! We'll need help with food, set up, and take-down for our feast.  Email me if you can help!

Reading Week

It's reading week at Mount Lebanon School. Tomorrow, we have read you t-shirt day and an author visit!  Natalie Kinsey-Warnock will be speaking to our fourth graders at 9:45 tomorrow.  On Thursday, we'll have wacky hair day and on Friday, we'll wear pajamas to school.
