Every Friday morning before morning meeting, Ms. Aldrich puts on some music and we have a dance party to start the day! Look at those smiling faces!
Today in Humanities fourth graders turned to Ancient Mesopotamian scribes and created their very own cuneiform tablets out of clay.
On Thursday, the fourth grade students participated in an activity to learn and reflect on Hammurabi’s Code. The students pretended they were living in “the cradle of civilization” and tried to picture what life was like back then. The students visited six stations that each had a different situation with the corresponding Hammurabi’s Code. The students contemplated if Hammurabi’s punishments were fair or cruel in a classroom discussion.
Today two fourth graders volunteered to harvest some of the vegetables we have been growing! Look at how much we grew! We can’t wait to try them at the salad bar!
On Friday the fourth grade students met with their seventh grade mentors for the second time. They filled out questionnaires about each other, and then everyone played a game where we lined up according to our birthdays! It was a great way to end a Friday! We are looking forward to doing more with our 7th grade mentors as the year goes on!
In Humanities on Halloween we read a couple of spooky stories. The students were very intrigued to listen to Ms. Aldrich read them the story over flashlight in the dark room for added suspense.
We hope everyone had a Happy & Safe Halloween!
The 4th graders hard at work designing theatre projects. Come solve our multiplication word problems at Exhibition November 25th!
Look at how much has grown in our tower gardens! The arugula, spinach, romaine lettuce and cilantro will be used in the kitchen for lunches. Come visit the salad bar to try our organic vegetables!
Students have been studying the ancient cave paintings of early humans, and in preparation today we painted their cave walls that will be displayed during Exhibition.
Thank you to the parents that have donated paint and their time in class to help today run smoothly! The fourth grade team is excited that we have started gearing up for Exhibition in four short weeks! We can’t wait to show you what we have worked on!
Today, Friday October 18 was Vicki Kenneally’s last day. Vicki taught fourth grade Literacy and Second Step. We are sad to see her go, but appreciate everything she has done for Marblehead Charter throughout her four years here, as well as these last few months with 4A & 4S! Students created handmade cards for her and surprised her in class and then get her a big group hug!
Congragulations & Thank you to Mrs. Kenneally!
