Besides our class election, the fourth graders also held a school election for both "CANDY" and "PRESIDENTIAL" candidates. They had come around to our class and advertised and campaigned for their party this week and so now today they set up the voting booth and EVERYONE voted. The school results were TRUMP over CLINTON and HERSHEY'S over SOUR PATCH KIDS. We heard lots of chocolate lovers cheering when WINNERS were announced! Mrs. Elder and Mrs. Sawyer did an AMAZING job setting this up for us! We loved every minute of it and learned so much about different ways a person can try and persuade someone to share their beliefs.
In reading we worked on our FLAT STANLEY project some more. With our selection test finished, we had a little time to take care of catch up with this project. Flat people are coming along. I did staple a letter in everyone's agenda today so that they can get some help from you at home in deciding who they would like to send their flat person to. If you could make sure they have a decision made along with an address found by Friday, that would be SUPER! Tomorrow morning we will be walking to the POST OFFICE for a tour to see just what is going to happen to our letters once we mail them. Make sure your kiddo dresses for the weather and wears comfortable shoes.
In math we finished up our REVIEW booklets. They do have a MATH TEST tomorrow and they are suppose to show this booklet to Mom or Dad tonight. When they do, please quiz them over some of it and then sign the booklet letting me know that they did some studying this evening.
Tonight in their RED FOLDERS you will find a English paper for them to do. Remind them that ALL sentences start with capital letters and end with punctuation. We have been working hard on that here at school. They also have their reading calendar.
It sure is a BEAUTIFUL evening so be sure and enjoy this nice fall weather.
Can't wait until tomorrow!
