Happy Holidays Parents!

We've had a busy week! Thursday was our field trip to Billings Farm for the annual 4th grade 1890's Christmas Program. The students were split into two groups and did a variety of activities from making candles, cookies and ornaments to learning about primary and secondary sources through old letters to santa.

Today we had the pleasure of visiting the Lebanon Operahouse and seeing Amahl and the Night Visitors. It was wonderful to see a student from our school up on the stage and the students shared that they enjoyed the music and dancing in the play. Be sure to ask your 4th grader what their favorite part of the show was.

We have just 4 days left of school before the holiday break. We will be busy next week continuing to work through our opinion writing unit and geometry unit. Students are learning about the attributes of different shapes and can be encouraged to look for these shapes and angles in things at home. They will also have a chance to use their persuasive writing skills in a letter to santa!

Next week we will celebrate the holiday on Thursday with fruit kabobs and a Christmas movie. We will also use our Think3d! math skills to make some more holiday cards. Please send in a container of your child's favorite fruit to add to our kabobs.

Below I've attached some links to some websites for extra math work at home. Some parents requested these. We hope this is helpful!
