This year is all about team work. We're working together to get back into the school routine, learn the new procedures and protocols, and build a strong fourth grade classroom community. We started the year off with a STEM activity. The challenge: can you work together in a group of three to build a six cup pyramid? Here's the catch, you can't touch the cups! Each group member must help place each cup using only a rubber band and a piece of ribbon.
Welcome to fourth grade! I'm am so excited you are here.
This week, we are introducing Genius Hour. This is a student driven, open-ended activity that can be done in place of assigned projects in Google Classroom. Learn about it here!
WHAT IS GENIUS HOUR?
TIME FOR A PEP TALK FROM KID PRESIDENT TO GET STARTED!
WHAT DOES THIS LOOK LIKE IN ACTION?
Today we enjoyed an African drumming and movement assembly at the new Center for the Arts. First of all, the new Center is beautiful. Second, it was wonderful to start of this snowy Monday learning about a new culture, listening to beautiful drums and traditional African instruments, and moving our bodies with the beat! Check it out!
