Let's face it. Kickball. It's what we are all thinking about. At least, it's what your fourth graders and I are thinking about. We are in the fourth-grade championship game!!! I knew we had athletes in our class. I knew we had leaders. I even knew we were a good team. But I have never played an actual kickball game myself, so I am beyond excited and proud that this group of children got themselves here! Miss O and I have given them tips, and we will shout directions from the sidelines tomorrow, but please know this... this "season" is ALL THEM. You should be proud.
If you are able, please join us for the final game tomorrow. It begins at 2:00pm, and all are welcome. You do not need to come into the building; just head to the field. I know that seeing your faces and hearing your voices will be good for our morale. Just prepare yourself; all of the fourth-grade classes will be outside cheering our class and Mrs. Peters's class on to a victory. And a super thanks in advance to Caiden and his family for volunteering to treat us after the game.
If you come and want to take your child home after the game, you will need to sign them out from the office. Please send a note in advance that you will be doing that so the secretarial staff can be prepared. Thank you!
As you know, we celebrated our wins and a great year with a relaxing Friday. I appreciated the time watching your children just enjoy one another's company. Thanks to Ayden and his family, we were also showered with lots of delicious food from Leonardo's Pizza. They have been so generous all year.
On June 9th, the fifth-grade championship team will be playing the Bath Staff Kickball team in a year-end tradition that everyone looks forward to. The game is scheduled for the afternoon, so I like to use that morning for some fun and awards. This usually is my "end-of-year class party," ... so we will call this the EOY Party Part II. Last week, I asked the kids what food they would like to make that day start off right. Now I'd like to invite you to help me make that happen. ☺️ Please see the attached sign-up for bringing food and drinks in on June 9th.
Besides kickball and parties, this week we are wrapping up our novel, Toothpaste Millionaire, and learning about circuits. We will start our final math/science project: building tiny houses! This unit is a good mix of measurement and science. The children explore how energy can be transferred from one location to another or transformed from one form to another. It is a fun project with many areas for children to engage with one another and do some creative problem-solving.
