Welcome to 4th Grade!
- If you haven't been making trips to the library, this would be a great time to start. Check out the "Finding a Book" link on the side to find books similar to the ones you have loved reading.
- Read, read, read!
- Play math games. We're starting with place value, addition, and subtraction.
- Fractions are fun! Play games with them too.
- Practice your typing skills with Dance Mat or Cup Stacking.
- Keep a journal on something that interests you... soccer games, going to the beach (What you notice about the wind, sand, water, people? Is there a connection between the wind and number of people who look happy?), art projects (Describe what you created and how you created it. Did you feel frustrated at any point? What did you do when you got frustrated? What did you do with the final piece of artwork? How did you feel?), etc.
- Build a Rube Goldberg machine. Check out this cool machine built by a 7-year old! There are lots of ideas for Rube Goldberg machines on the internet. You can see the results of contests too. Remember, the machines don't often work right away. It's a trial and error process. Let me know if you make a machine and post it on the Internet. I definitely want to see it!
- Explore words (Mad Libs, the visual thesaurus, rhymes) and math games on our website.
- Here's a new game, GeoGuessr. Start with the USA maps and then move onto other maps. You can move around to gather clues from the road, vegetation, power lines, cars, and road signs (when they exist). Use all the clues you can find to guess the locations.
