4th Grade Teamletter
The year is quickly coming to an end. However, we can't be on break for 8 more days. Please remind your kids of this. We know it is hard with the beautiful weather, ball games and ball practice.
The chicks have gone to their new home with Mrs. Thomas. The students were very loving with them.
Technology/Mrs. Thomas: This week students continued practicing keyboarding, took their final keyboarding timing for the year, and learned how to play the 1985 version of Oregon Trail online. (They really enjoyed it.) Here is my website where students can go to practice keyboarding at home or access a variety of other web links that we use during school - http://protopage.com/portatech#Untitled/4th_grade. Ask your child how they did on their timing; the goal for 4th grade by the end of the year is 15 wpm with at least 90% accuracy. Next week we will continue with keyboarding and finish any incomplete activities.
Coming up are some great events. We will do science experiments on June 2nd. Swimming for our no demerit party will be on Thursday, May 29th. Please bring swimsuits to change into here. Also bring a plastic bag to put the wet suit and towel in. Track and field day will be fun. This will be held on Monday, June 2nd. You might also want to bring sunscreen. Our end of the year picnic will also be this day. Please join us for the picnic and track meet.
On June 3rd we will be having our ARP carnival. There will be many fun games for students to use their tickets they have earned from reading. Also we will try to dunk Mr. Kesler in the dunk tank!
Since this is our last letter we want to thank you for reading it each week all year long.
Have a great weekend!
Mrs. Conklin, Mrs. Howard, Mr. Kelly and Mrs. Rudd
