Fourth Grade- Friday, March 27

Welcome Back!!!!

It's time for another day of Distance Learning! You're doing great!!!

heart Your Upper Elementary Team


Read the article "Dolphins on Duty" and answer the following questions.

1. What qualties do dolphins have that make them a good choice to help the Navy?

2. What 3 other animals does the article mention, and what do they do? (See Animals Undercover Chart)

3. If you could train an animal to help you, what animal would you choose and what would it do?


Enjoy the reading for today. :)


Continue working on your vocabulary log. You will work on this all 10 days of distance learning. Add one word a day, or add multiple words each day and begin reviewing for the quiz. It's up to you!



Happy Friday! 

Thanks for your hard work on your monster writing! I loved how creative many of you were. Today, I want to hear about all of the (hopefully) fun things you have been up to. I'm sure you all miss your friends, the sports/hobbies you were involved in, and other things that were normal before this virus came along, but I'm hoping being at home has given you and your family some opportunities to do a few things that you wouldn't have been able to do before. On the same Google doc that you've been completing your writing assignments on, write 1-2 paragraphs (or more) about some of the fun activities and/or moments you've shared with your family over the past 2 weeks. Give me lots of detail! 



Have a family member give you a practice spelling test. A fun thing about not being in a normal school setting is you have a few options for how you want to write your words! You could do it on the Google doc. You could write them on your driveway with chalk, and have your mom/dad email me a picture. You could paint your words on paper (with permission). You could rainbow write your words with markers/crayons! Make it fun. I'm looking forward to seeing a few pictures. :)

Special Classes



Hello everyone! I wanted to check-in, so I made this re-cap video for you:


After you've watched the video I made, watch this Mystery Science lesson. DO NOT DO THE ACTIVTY/EXPERIEMENT!!!! Just watch the first 20 minutes of the lesson. Make sure you stop and think whenever the video asks you a question. When Mr. Doug starts talking about experimenting with 2 types of liquid, you're done with the lesson :)

Hello Friends!

Mrs. Touchton misses your smiling faces and your joyful hearts! I cannot wait to see you again.

But until then we will continue to be creative in, well, creative ways~ Ha! I hope you are learning so much at home and enjoying your time with family. I have put together an art lesson for you to try when you want to take a break from your academic lessons. I thought it may be fun to finish our LOVE stamp, inspired by Robert Indiana, together at home. This lesson has three parts, they are labeled by numbers 1,2,and 3, so there are three videos to watch as you progress with your artwork. (Disclaimer: I couldn't get the video to "fast forward" as I said I would on the video-sorry folks, I guess Mrs. Touchton is trying to learn new things too while I am at home. That attempt was a fail ;( ha!) You can access the videos here-


Please know that the lessons I send you are not required. They are enrichment only. You may choose to do the lessons or a 3 minute drawing. The object is to enjoy being creative!


Please email me with any pictures of videos of your completed artwork or any new ways you found to be creative! My email is

Love and Miss you!

Mrs. T
