1. In the morning we met up with our 6th grade buddies in Mr. Kolden's class to hear their superhero stories.
2. In math we started Unit 8, Perimeter and Area. By the end of this unit, 4th graders will know how to find the perimeters and areas of a variety of shapes.
3. After lunch we studied the prefixes re- and pre-. Prefixes are a group of letters that change the meaning of a root word. The prefix re- means "again". If you were to redo your spelling homework, it means you would do your spelling homework again. The prefix pre- means "before". Many of you attended preschool before attending Brimhall. This is the school you attended before elementary school.
4. We started to prepare for our student-led conferences that are taking place on February 21st and 23rd. We look forward to sharing all of our 4th grade accomplishments with our families.
