Leap Day, Snow Day!

I hope everyone enjoys their day off. You know Miss Frank misses you all, but likes to be in her pajamas in the morning hanging out with her dog Gregor! Unfortunately we are missing today's great BrainPop movie on why we have an extra day in February every four years. It not only has information that went with our Earth, Sun, and Moon science unit, but also talks about multiples from math. While you are home today, watch the Leap Year video, comment on this post something you learned, and get a prize from the prize box tomorrow!

The Wright Stuff!

We have been reading about the Wright brothers and their famous first flight. Guess what showed up while we were practicing typing?

We had a great time today at the fourth grade Super Sale! Students bought and sold goods and were producers and consumers. Thanks to all the parents for helping with the items and to all the CES staff who stopped buy to shop!

Super Sale!

The 4th grade students will be holding a “Super Sale” on Thursday afternoon, February 16. Each student should bring in items to sell that can easily be placed on his/her desktop. Items should be junk drawer treasures, old toys, baked goods or crafts.
  • Items should be marked “garage sale” style with his/her initials and a price, not to exceed $2.00 for any one item. 
  • Items to be sold should be brought to school in a bag marked with the student’s name. 
  • Each student should bring money to spend, not to exceed $2.00. This money should be in change. No bills please!
We are all looking forward to this activity! It will be an interesting way to reinforce the economics that we’ve studied.

Be My Valentine!

On Tuesday, February 14, we will have a small Valentine's Day celebration at the end of the day. There will be a treat and students can exchange Valentine cards. Students who bring in cards should bring one for everybody in the class. A class list will be sent home.
