HEADLINES - Invent a headline for either of these videos that captures an important aspect of it.
Not long to go now guys. Pretty soon you will all be catching flights, hitting the beach, seeing family and friends, relaxing and generally having fun.
You've worked really hard this year and it's amazing to think that we are half way through Grade 4 already. After the break, we start our 4th unit of inquiry "How we express ourselves." It looks like it should be fun and there will be lots of opportunity to get creative.
To get ready for the unit, I want you to do a little bit of observing.
Our central idea is "People communicate and reflect on thoughts and emotions through art."
To help us in our first week back, I would like you to gather some examples of art. Over the holidays I would like you to look for different examples of art. You can photograph them or sketch them in your creative journal.
If you get chance it would be great to visit an art gallery, but simply by being observant and noticing the world around you I'm sure you'll find lots of great examples. Think about all the examples we came up with for our campus!
Have fun! Be Safe!
A great effort at this stage of term. I'm really impressed by your resilience. I overheard quite a few conversations and I thought you did a great job of answering your concept questions and fielding questions from your visitors. You should go home feeling very proud of yourselves this evening.
Dear grade 4 teachers and students,
What an amazing Earth Fair. I really enjoyed listening to all your explanations. You taught me so many amazing facts. You all spoke eloquently and understood thoroughly how tectonic plates affect our earth. Your models and experiments were impressive. I really appreciated having those and the diagrams as I am a visual learner.
Congratulations on a job well done!
Next Wednesday is our class party. It will be held at Robin's house and as part of the celebrations there will do a secret santa. You all have the name of a person you need to provide a gift for so here are some ground rules to help you:
When you wrap the gift you need to attach a note that says something like:
You are special because ..................
Have a great holiday.
From Secret Santa
You must bring your gift to the party on Wednesday. Please don't bring it to school.
I like this idea. Nabeel has taken the work he has done for his project so far and turned it into a google slideshow. I think it looks great. I wondered if it would be possible to do the same using the thinglink site that Mr John shared with us and so Nabeel made one of those as well.
