Hello Everyone,

It will be due Monday, October 29. Your child should have already checked out a book from the library, or is reading one from home!  I will send more information home, a week before they are due!  
      Also, on Wednesday October 31st,  we will be carving apple faces on apples!  Your child needs to bring the largest apple you can find, for this activity.  For your information, "The Hub," in Enoch, are selling very large apples for a quarter a lb!
      We have started our Social Studies on The Five Indian Tribes of Utah!  We will be weaving belts!  Please send a skein of yarn wrapped into a ball, for your child to start their belt with. We will wear them throughout our studies!
      We were fortunate to have "Utah's Water Van" visit our 4th graders!  They brought along a Garden Snake, and a Tiger Salamander!  A great pre-learning experience on Amphibians and Reptiles!We also learned about the "Water Cycle!"We will continue our studies of the water cycle later on this year!
