Mrs. Muller's Grade Four Class

We are a group of Grade 4 Students from Guelph Ontario Canada. We would love to connect with other students from around the world! Visit our blogs and please leave us questions or comments!

Scientists In School

What a great way to start our week back from March Break! Scientists in School helped us learn so much about pulleys and gears.  To see what we learned visit our blogs and read more!

Ropes!

We soared to new heights and faced our fears!  What a great physical education activity!  Thank you to Keira our photographer! 🙂

Our Great Canadian Mail Race Update!

Austin was second to receive mail from British Columbia!

Adventures of Holly!

I have the best classmates! See how full my cheeks are? MMMmmm delicious veggies!

Keira built me this incredible maze! It’s a boredom buster for sure!

Here I am taking a tour of my home addition!

I love when my classmates read to me! The Humphrey series are my fav!

Getting a little closer so I can hear Vincent’s excellent reading!

 

Bamboo A New Classmate

On our first day of school in 2019 our teacher had a gift for the class!

Lucky Vincent! His name was drawn from Mrs. Muller’s bag of names, so he had the exciting job of unwrapping the gift….. What could it possibly be???

A cuddly black and white panda bear!!! He’s not just any old panda bear either!

Bamboo is going to go home with each student in the class for a sleepover! The best part is that Bamboo is a WEBKINZ!

 

If you have not heard of a Webkinz you are in for a new adventure!  Bamboo is actually a virtual pet in Webkinz World that we adopted.  In this wonderful world we are able to take care of Bamboo and all of the other pets that Mrs. Muller’s previous classes have adopted.  There are fun games to play and EVEN educational games!  When Mrs Muller’s students bring Bamboo home they will also be writing an adventure chapter for Bamboo’s book “And Then It Happened”!  Stay tuned for the stories!  You will find them on our home page under the tab “Bamboo”.

 

The Great Mail Race

We bet you are wondering what a mail race is!  We wanted to find out more about other Grade 4 students and the land across Canada so we  decided to randomly send letters to schools all over the country.  From the Yukon, to Nunavut, to Newfoundland and Labrador our letters hope to land in the hands of unknown Canadian students!  First we researched elementary schools in each province and territory and then we began our letter writing.  In the end the first student who receives a letter back will win the race!  We can’t wait to see what happens!

We used Google Maps to search for schools in each province and territory in Canada.

Then we wrote a friendly letter to each of the schools.

Inside our letters we included information about our school, the community we live in, a class photo, and a page of questions that we hope the Grade 4 classes will respond to.

We mailed our letters at a nearby mailbox. It was quite a cold November day!

Although Canada Post is on rotating strikes we are hopeful that our letters will arrive safely and that they will be a wonderful surprise to the classes who receive them!

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day activities give us time to consider many important questions about life and the choices people make.

We read a story called “Faithful Elephants”.  We learned that war not only destroys the lives of humans but also those of animals.  Do you agree with what happened to the zoo animals?

What do you think the elephants on our wreath represent?

What was the most important thing you learned from our class discussion with Master Corporal Gaudet?

The End of WW1

We worked with our Grade 1 Buddies to create a slideshow “Peace Is”.  It reminds us of the importance of peace and all the ways we can find peace everyday.
