Mining for minerals

Our first Science unit is Rocks and Minerals.  Today we learned what a rock and mineral are, then we used cookies to seperate the minerals (milk, white, dark chocolate chips) from the rock (the cookie).

Yesterday our class used the website to create Wordles about ourselves. Here are two pictures of them.  They will be hanging on the bulletin board outside our classroom for a few weeks.

Our class will begin the grade 4 Spelling program on Monday, Sept. 12.  Students will be introduced to the weekly words on Monday and take the words home to study, work on a lesson during the week, and write a spelling test on Friday.  I have added all of the Spelling words for the year on and students can go on-line to practice, take tests, and play games.  The words are split into Lessons and we will do one lesson each week throughout the 2011/2012 school year.  This way students have no excuse not to practice the spelling words each week. 
To find the spelling words go to Click on Find a List, type in Kali Naylor (Teacher's Name), and then click Search.  My lists will come up in the search results below.  We will start with Lesson 1 tomorrow, and work our way through to Lesson 17B in June.

Grade 4 Student's first post

Hello. We want to tell you how much fun we have had. We've gone to gym, Music, and Library. We are learning French for the first time at school.   We learned how to write the date in French.  We learned the days of the week in French.  We even counted to 10 in French!  We are earning apples for the rewards jar and today is the draw!  We have met new friends, a new teacher, and got to move upstairs to a new classroom.  We have to walk up and down the stairs a lot now and it will be tiring.  There have been a lot of changes in the school and we are excited.  Grade 4 is going to be a lot of fun.  Grade 4 rules! --The students in 4 Naylor

Second day of school

The school supplies are all put away, books are on the shelves, and students are in the desks.  The school year has begun!  We even wrote a Spelling test today and started our first Social Studies unit: Geography of Canada.  I am looking forward to all of the fun things I've planned for the class--coming up, an Apple unit in Language Arts where we get to taste test apples to decide our favorite.  We will start that next week.  I'd like the next post to be written by the class so stay tuned!

Welcome to grade 4!

Welcome to my grade four class!  I have spent the past 3 weeks getting the classroom all set up for you, and let me tell you, with TWENTY SEVEN students I had a lot of work to do to get ready.  The room is a little squishy but that just means we will become even better friends this year. So get ready for a fun filled (hey, you can have fun doing school work!) year! I can't wait to get to know you all.
