HELLO FAMILIES 🙂
We have had a busy week in 4th grade! We started the week rehearsing, and then performing the entertaining show, “The Day the Crayons Came Home”. Thank you to all the families who came to the show! Your children worked so hard during music class and rehearsals, and on Tuesday night they put on an amazing show!
Our solar light project is coming to an end. We spent the week charging the lights through the window, and on Friday we tested them out in the dance room. We then wrapped them up with a letter and they will be on their way to Kenya over the summer! This was such a meaningful experience for our students.
UPCOMING WEEK’S CURRICULUM
This week we will be continuing to learn about character development in fiction texts. We will write free verse poems and publish our favourite poems.
This week in math we will be ordering, adding and subtracting fractions.
UNIT OF INQUIRY
We will begin our new unit, Marketplace, this week and will start to inquire into the central idea – Knowledge of the Market Inspires Entrepreneurship. This week we will be “finding out” about how a business works and how knowledge of the market is what determines a successful business. This Monday your child will bring home the plan for the 4th Grade Market Day. This week I will be conferencing with each student about their business idea and giving them feedback and advice. By Friday all students will have decided on their product or service.
STUDENT COUNCIL DRESS UP DAY
On Wednesday, May 30 the Lower School Student Council is inviting everyone to dress up with a “Future Career” theme. Students can spend the whole day dressed up as their future career, for example, a doctor or an artist.
This week for homework your child will have Market Day, reading and math homework.
We want to make you aware of a fun opportunity for your children this summer…Summer Camp at SCIS! We are offering a mixed section for students in grades 3-5. Our non-academic setting provides our campers with the opportunity to meet new friends and hone leadership skills, while engaged in activities such as art, cooking, drama, dance, sports, water play, field trips, and much more. See our website for a closer look at enrolment options and our weekly themes this summer, please note you can choose your enrolment option based on the week or weeks you are interested in.
