FOURTH GRADE-Miss Oziem

Here we are already in April, and the time has gone by so fast! As we finish the beautiful season of Lent, we look back and see we have accomplished so much. Over the past few weeks we have been learning about the amazing life and legacy of Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen. We watched a documentary about his life called “Servant of All”. It was a beautiful documentary about his early life as a young altar boy to the amazing public witness of God that we all know today. Our students have come to truly love Archbishop Sheen and his works. It is safe to say that there was not a dry eye in our room when we finished the documentary. After learning about his life and reading some of his outstanding books, we decided to write a paper about why Archbishop Sheen should be canonized a saint. We buddied up with 7th grade to create these amazing papers. The 7th grade has been an amazing instrument to the 4th grade, and we have become better writers thanks to them. In Math we have finished our chapter on fractions and have begun a new chapter in Geometry! It is “shaping up” to be an interesting year! In Science we have been learning about the weather and climate change. We even went so far as to make our own weather map of the United States and its climates. In Social Studies we are getting ready to wrap up our unit of the Southwest and all its glory. We can’t wait for what is to come!
