Teacher Notes

SECOND YEAR TO SACRAMENTO!
For a second year, fourth graders will visit Sacramento to tour the state capitol! This is a day-long trip. We tour the capitol building and then have a sack lunch on the capitol grounds. This is a wonderful learning experience for the students and acquaints them with how government works for the people. The date for this trip will be forthcoming.
FOURTH GRADE NATIVES ON A MISSION!
Fourth grade will start the year with the study of our California Native Americans. Students will study a tribal nation and create an informational bi-fold.The bi-fold will include historical information about the tribe's food, clothing, housing, and traditions. By the second trimester, fourth graders will start their studies about the California Missions. Each student will choose a mission to research and then put together an information folder about the mission they chose. Finally, they will give a short oral presentation about their mission.
THERE'S GOLD IN THEM THAR HILLS!
IN MAY, FOURTH GRADERS WILL BUILD THEIR WAGONS AND HEAD WEST! Gold Rush Day will be in May and their wagons will be ready to "move em out"! Guidelines for building the wagons will be sent home.

GO-HOME FOLDERS, RECYCLING, HOMEWORK POLICIES
Please make sure to sign the progress reports that appear in the Go-Home Folders before returning them to school. Go-Home Folders will be sent home every Friday and students are required to return these folders every Monday.
