4th Grade – McKenney

October Newsletter

We have had a great first few weeks of school!  I am enjoying getting to know your child and watching them learn.

We are currently in the middle of a science experiment.  We learned about different types of soil and how that affects plant growth.  Students collected different types of soil and planted bean seeds in it.  We are watching to see what happens as they begin to grow.

We have also become explorers as we begin learning about the Northeastern United States both past and present.

Math begins each day with a math minute activity.  This is helping students to practice up on basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills.

We have enjoyed getting outside for our PE time.  We have played football, learned how to do warm up stretches and jumped rope.  We even heard some jump rope songs that were new to many of us.

Language Arts/Reading is getting off to a good start.  I will soon be breaking students into groups and working with them on their reading skills and comprehension levels.

I look forward to October and the many new adventures we will have as we learn together!
