1. In math we looked at perimeter and area. We each were given a hexagon, 3 triangles, 3 rhombuses and 3 trapezoids. We had to figure out how to make the smallest perimeter. We did this by putting the long sides together first. We then tried to make the largest perimeter. We did this by putting the shortest sides together first.
2. We studied engineering in science with Mrs. Brown.
3. In honor of "I love to Read!" month, we had surprise Drop-Everything-And-Read time. It was so neat that all Brimhall students were reading at the same time. We look forward to more DEAR time later this week. Remember, you should have a book with you at all times :)
4. We worked on our angry verbs. A verb is an action word. Check out our fantastic art! Parents, you'll be able to see this outside our classroom door at conferences next week.
Homework: Study Link 8.2, Spelling Sentences (due tomorrow), final copy of door decoration (due Thursday).
Thanks for such a fantastic day 4th graders!
