4th Grade – S McKenney

May Newsletter

Welcome Spring????
In spite of the questionable April weather, spring really is here!  As we begin May, I am planning some outdoor science activities as we begin to observe trees budding and grass growing.  We have recently finished our unit on simple machines.  For social studies, we have been watching channel 1 Student News.  This adds a current events element to our social studies time.  The students have been doing well watching the news reports and discussing them and asking questions.  As we begin to count down to the end of the school year, it is hard to believe my students are almost 5th graders.  Having said that, be sure to know that there is still plenty of time left and a lot of learning to be done in 4th grade.

Don’t forget to have your child bring in their envelopes for Jump Rope for Heart by May 4th.  Whether they bring in envelopes or not, all students will be jumping rope with Mrs. Resman on May 4th.

Don’t Miss Out
Please be sure to watch for notes and comments on your child’s weekly reports to keep up with all the latest news and happenings as we draw closer to the end of the 2017/2018 school year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at ext. 14.
