This week Mrs. Pfeiffer's 4th grade students read "Colonial Voices", learning about different viewpoints of the Colonists during the Revolutionary War. They read opinions of Loyalists, Patriots, Native Americans, and slaves leading up to the Boston Tea Party. We compared and contrasted, and discussed why each person may have felt the way they did. On Friday, Ms. Bicknell visited our room to impose taxes (taking smarties away) on the students to show them how the colonists may have felt. This led to a great discussion afterwards. Thanks Ms. Bicknell!

Mrs. LeSage's and Mrs. Martin's classes are buddies. They had about 30 minutes to work. It was fun watching the groups analyze, create a plan, try different paper chain size solutions, and use critical thinking skills while trying to make the longest paper chain.
LeVasseur: Mrs. LeSage's class and Mrs. Martin's class are buddies. Today we had one 4th grader paired with one or two 2nd graders. Each pair was given one piece of construction paper. They had about 30 minutes to create the longest paper chain with that 1 piece of paper. It was fun watching the groups analyze, create a plan, try different paper chain size solutions, and use critical thinking skills while trying to make the longest paper chain. Finally, we spread all of the paper chains out in the MPR to see which buddy group had the longest chain.
Winter Concert fun at LeVasseur!
