Assignments

Students/parents; find weekly assignments under newsletter section! As fourth graders I feel the students should be learning responsibility with their assignment notebook. Therefore, they are responsible for writing down their assignments and gathering their materials at the end of the day. I will not be checking and signing everyone's notebook. If you feel your child needs help with their organization, please contact me. If your child receives a D or F on any test or quiz, it needs to be signed by a parent and returned to school the next day. Every child will have the opportunity to retake a test or quiz once. The most current grade will remain the new grade. Depending on how long the test or quiz is, students may retake it in sections. A retake may look like a written test, a narrative, or even an oral test restating the correct or right way to do the problem.

Science: Different sense receptors are specialized for particular kinds of information, which are then processed by the animal’s brain. Animals are able to use their perceptions and memories to guide their actions. The senses allow animals to see, feel, hear, taste, smell, sense heat, sense cold, sense which way is down, sense acceleration (change in speed), and even sense electrical impulses. Then the senses transfer the meanings of those sensations to the brain. The brain allows organisms to react to stimuli. Not all senses are equal for all animals. In some animals, certain senses are more developed than others. Which senses are more developed can differ among animals depending on their environments and their particular needs for survival. The terst will be on Wednesday!
