We have had a very busy week in 4th grade. Students have received laptop computers that they will use in the classroom, but will not be bringing home. They are using a new vocabulary program called WordlyWise that is all online and allows me to see their progress and areas of struggle. They can only move forward in the program when they answer the questions with proficiency which forces them to truly do the work and gain understanding.
In science we have been learning about the behavior of bubbles; how they respond to dry surfaces, the causes that make them pop, and ways to extend the life of a bubble. Ask your child about bubbles and listen to their newly gained knowledge about bubble-ology! Below are some pictures of students created their largest bubbles, bubbles inside of bubbles, and creative bubble structures.
