End of the School Year

 

 

Dear Parents and Students,

I wanted to write a letter to all of you to thank each and every one of you for a fantastic school year together. It has been a true pleasure teaching each one of my students. It is amazing to see how much they have grown since the beginning of the school year.

This year would not have been possible without the help from the parents in this class. I was given such a great group of parents this year. I couldn’t have made it through the year without the chaperones, volunteers, and all the donations of food and supplies to make it to the end of the school year! More importantly, thank you for the support at home in reinforcing the curriculum and help your student thrive in 4th grade at Trevvett. It truly reflects in the progress that the students have made throughout the year.

I will always remember this class because we had such a fantastic year together! We have had many memories through the year that I will not forget. I will miss this class next year. I couldn’t have asked for a better class! Thank you to all the gifts and presents throughout the year, too! Everything I have enjoyed very much! I hope to see you and your child visit me next year! Have a safe and fun summer! I am looking forward to seeing the students in 5th grade next year and I will miss those moving to other places. Enjoy summer break!

Fondly,

Miss Bauer

This Week in Room 12

In Reading, students are enjoying working on word ladders and critical thinkers to increase their vocabulary. Also, students chose a book of their choice on Epic Books to read and complete a fun book report. I am so proud of each and every student’s project. Everyone did an amazing job!

In Math, students finished up their coordinate geometry project. Students were able to choose their own theme of their treasure map then create a colorful map with the x and y axis that had 10 objects on various coordinates. Then students wrote 10 sentences themed to their projects where others students will list the coordinates to answer the questions. I am so proud of all the hard work put into this assignment.

In Writing, students continued to work another weekly June calendar writing. Students have shown that they have a strong understanding of completing a circle map and rough draft before typing their final draft. I truly have enjoyed reading all of their writings and see so much growth in each and everyone’s writing abilities.

In Science, students learned about plants. Our class learned that plants reproduce by seeds and spores. We also learned about the parts of the plant that support the plant which include the stem, roots, and leaves. Students also learned about the parts and functions of a flower.
