4th graders have the opportunity to run for class representatives in Student Council. This year we had 4 kids decide to run. They made posters, had to tell their classmates why they would be a good choice for the job, and some even brought goodies. We congratulate Caity and Decker who won the election. I was proud of all the kids for jobs well done.
As we have completed our Family Faith and Heritage project now, I am reminded of the words from Psalm 78:4-6:
“We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord. He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children.”
Over the last weeks in our discussion of our faith journeys and our heritage, the children have shared stories of their families that have been very touching. I am reminded of the awesome privilege we have as parents, grandparents, godparents, and teachers to share the love of Jesus with these precious children.
I am so proud of the 4th graders! They did an incredible job on their displays and their presentations. Thank you for making this a memorable project for the kids.
The 4th graders completed the science chapter covering plant structure and function. Activities included studying and drawing the parts of a flower and comparing the four parts of two different flowers. They made a clay model of a flower in art and walked around the school looking at the different kinds of flowers we have on our property. We agreed that God did a great job in decorating the earth!
The room was buzzing August 23rd! The STUCO elections couldn’t have happened soon enough for the kids. Almost 50% of the class ran for class representative! That was an incredible number. I was so proud of their creativity and the job they did on their speeches. Although only two kids were elected, all were gracious to each other. It was a joy to see! Congratulations to the new representatives-Robyn and Ian!
The 4th graders were introduced to the new language arts program the first week of school. During that time we looked at the connection between bees and humans when we read and studied a piece of informational text. As we wrapped up the week the kids were to brainstorm questions they would like to ask a beekeeper. They then created a picture to go along with one of their questions. They are displayed in the hall outside our room if you would like to see them!
May 7th was a big day for the 4th graders. All year long the students have been looking at a variety of writing styles by authors and then writing their own books as well as eight class books. On this day we gathered together with our guests to share our works of art. They were stars for the evening!
