There are many important events coming up soon and all through the rest of the school year. Along with being prepared, your fourth grader has also been thinking: purpose, plan and prioritize.
The students are busy preparing for Market Day which will be on January 31 from 12:00-1:30. As mentioned in last week’s blog post, Market Day is a very exciting and valuable opportunity for the students to learn to work in groups, compromise, be responsible and organize themselves. It is common that at some point during this process students could become frustrated with their group. We work to guide students through that process so that by the end of the unit they have learned valuable social and organizational skills. Please do keep in contact with any questions or concerns that may arise.
It is also important to note that in a week’s time your child may be receiving a loan from UNIS to purchase supplies for Market Day. This will be dependent on what they are selling. If you purchase any supplies with your own money please keep the receipt or write a record. We want to make sure the students are keeping track of all of their costs. Again if you have any questions feel free to ask.
Math – Plan
For the students to be successful, they needed to consider many aspects of their learning and plan quantifiable goals. Knowing how important Math is for their businesses, Ms. Beth, our Math Enrichment coach, came in to entice your child with how we see, interpret and develop a relationship with numbers that are not only about calculations but also a fascinating set of ideas that can enrich our world. Ask your child how he/she is planning to use math in his/her group’s Market Day plan.
