A couple weeks ago Xavier, Stormy, and Roman had the opportunity to represent CEE at an event with SHARP Literacy at Discovery World. These scholars greeted guests as they arrived at the venue and then had the opportunity to ask questions the Milwaukee Bucks basketball players that were there! Great job Roman, Stormy, and Xavier! #allin #service #community

ELA and Social Studies Update 10/8

October 08, 2018
By Mrs. Opgenorth

I hope you all had a relaxing long weekend. I wanted to send out a weekly update letting you know what the 4th grade scholars have been working on in ELA and Social Studies. 


Attached to this email is a parent letter that was sent home last week letting you know about of first novel based unit in ELA. I wanted to give you an electronic version just in case the paper copy did not come home. 

Social Studies:

Both classes will be beginning their 5 regions project in class this week. 4B parents you should have received an email from me last week with all of the info in it. 4A parents, I will be sending you a separate email with all the details (4A is about one day behind 4B). I am going to change the due date of the project for both classes to be Thursday Oct. 18. This way each class will get an even amount of time in class to work on the projects and they will all be coming in on the same day. This is predominately an in class project so the posters should not be traveling to and from school.

**Please check Powerschool to make sure your child is not missing anything. I will be entering in grades for assignments I received last Thursday and this morning throughout the day and tonight. All missing and late work from the month of September was due today per my email last week.**

In ELA we wrapped up the First 20 Days and are well prepared to start our first novel based unit on Monday. We are starting off the year with Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson: Lightening Thief. There will be a parent letter going home on Monday letting you know what we will be covering in this unit so stay tuned for that!

In Social Studies we learned about the Ice Age and the effects it had here in Wisconsin. We talked about the many land forms and features found here and why they are special. Next week we will be jumping into our first big project of the year!

In Religion the scholars have continued to learn about the Catholic Social Teaching Principles and will be wrapping up our unit next week. 

In Science, we have been learning about physical and behavioral adaptations. We are getting close to wrapping up our Life Science unit which will end with a final project. More info about that will take place next week!

In Math, scholars have been reviewing everything they have learned about place value and rounding in preparation for their quiz on Monday!

**Parents please check Powerschool to ensure that your scholar has been turning in their work. Several scholars are missing reading logs and spelling homework. I will accept late work until Monday Oct. 8. After Oct. 8 whatever is not turned in cannot be made up.**
