Week 26 with Mrs. Feest

What a week it’s been! We have flown right into this last trimester. That’s right…the LAST trimester! In 4th grade math, we have been adding and subtracting fractions.

We will review and assess this next week. In 3rd grade math, we partitioned shapes into equal parts and began exploring fractions...

Week 22 with Mrs. Feest

Hello Bighorns! I heard such great things about this past week from Mrs. Farley, Mrs. Sorensen, and Mrs. Penossa (my sub). How could I not? These kiddos are fabulous! In 4th grade math, we started fractions! Students learned about what a denominator and numerator are, as well as what those numbers mean. We talked about benchmark fractions (fractions that equal one half or one whole) and how to use them when comparing fractions. We will continue working on fractions this week as we learn...

Hello Bighorns! #TeamONO is STRONG, and we can do HARD things. As your children may have told you, I will be gone this week.

We found a wonderful sub for me, and both Mrs. Sorensen and Mrs. Farley will be checking in on my kids. I am so grateful for their help with getting ready to leave town in such a...

Week 19 with Mrs. Feest

4th Grade Bighorns, Wow! What a week we’ve had in 4th grade. Can I just begin by saying how incredible your children are?!?! They are a strong bunch of young people. We had a tough talk on Thursday about Mrs. Antoniono and her cancer. Our counselor, Mr. Lenon, came in to help me share this news with the kids. They took it like champs! We shared with them that Mrs. Antoniono is sick and will need surgery, but has a treatable plan in place by the best doctors. We then addressed any...

Week 18 with Mrs. Feest

Hello 4th Grade Parents! I really hope you have been enjoying the long weekend with your family. I just got home this evening from a quick trip to Utah to visit family, and I had a wonderful time. Now my brain is quickly turning toward getting back to school. In projects, we have been learning about energy and natural resources. Last week we focused on the difference between renewable and non-renewable energy resources. Ask your children for examples-they really know their stuff! They...

Week 17 with Mrs. Feest

Bighorns! The kids did a great job just jumping right back into their routines! I am actually very proud of them because that can sometimes be a hard thing to do! In projects, we finished up our Engineering/Scientific Method analysis unit. Students studied the engineering method vs. the scientific method and then researched how engineers have improved building strategies to design better buildings that will withstand earthquakes. They then designed three different structures based on...
