Student Work Week of 5/26/2020

I have mixed feelings about this but this is the last week of remote learning =(

Please try to have any work emailed to me by Friday, May 29, even if it’s not complete, so you can receive credit. I will be working on completing report cards soon. If you have returned work to the school, please let me know so I can make sure I get it.

Remember when we went to Bonnyvale in the fall? And Joan come to us and we did the erosion experiment by the gazebo? AND we had planned on going back to Bonnyvale to visit Joan and the vernal pool? Well, we can’t go to the vernal pool in person, but we can go virtually!!! Joan has made 2 videos I think you will really enjoy about what a vernal pool is and what you find in a vernal pool. The first one she records is at night!!! I think you will really enjoy it; I sure did!

Please look for an email from me later in the week. I would really like to ask you and your parents your opinions on remote learning and how it was for each of you.

Reading- This week in reading we will be working on poetry and figurative language. April is National Poetry month, so we figured it would be a perfect way to celebrate and learn about poetry and write some of our own. They will be due on Friday.

Our theme for this week’s poems is: The Depth of Water. The theme comes from the 2020 NH Children’s Drinking Water Festival’s Poetry Contest. If you love your poems you’ll get the chance to submit them or write new ones to submit. Note: You do NOT have to submit your poems to the contest if you don’t want to.

Water is such a fascinating thing that takes up most of our planet! It’s something that we use every day. Today’s assignment is to read the articles below about water and brainstorm different ideas for what you would like to write about for the rest of the week.

Dear Parents:
As we attempt to best serve your needs during these uncertain times, as well as ensure the safety of our staff we have made several revisions to our remote learning plan.
We shall provide continuous learning opportunities for students through remote learning 4 days per week (Tuesdays-Fridays) through May 4th. Mondays will be a flex day for teachers to work on outreach, planning, preparation or attend to other needs as they arise in a remote instruction and learning environment. Our remote learning plan shall be responsive to parent and student feedback respecting the new demands on families and the related worry and anxiety.
Continuous learning opportunities means that teachers are providing students with content, materials, and resources that allow students to engage in academic work while at home. (See guidance below).
Students will have weekly assignments, and if possible, check-ins. The recommended guidelines for fourth graders each day are as follows:
GRADE 4:

Students! We will have a Zoom chat where I will read you chapter 8 of Mystery of the Silver Statue. Friday at 11AM. Check your emails for the Zoom link. See you soon! Hi All!

This week we are completing our Solar System project. I was thinking you could do your research using Google, but here are some sites to help.

Hope these help!

Thank you Miss Gerrish for the info! Parents and Students: On pages 10 and 15 of the problem solving packet, there are questions dealing with circumference and diameter the students may not be able to answer. For each problem the formula is 2 * 3.14 * the radius. I hope that helps, if not give me a shout out! PLEASE let me know if you need help or have a question! Ann March 23, 2020 Good morning, please have students check their emails. I have sent them all a message. Please let me know if you need any help! Ann King Thanks to the adults that have picked up their packets! I will be contacting you and your student to set up a video chat, if possible. Directions for the chat:

  • Students login to their Office 365 account (provided on a page in the packet)
  • Go to the Teams icon
  • There you will see the Chat icon

Please note the Daily Home Schedule is merely a suggestion on how to schedule your day. Please refer to the schedule that was on the top of your packet and follow the day to day instructions. Please do not try to complete all of the assignments in a few days. I am looking for quality work, so try not to rush. Please contact me with any questions or problems.
