The fourth graders in Mrs Madia’s class have been quite busy. In literacy, they wrote biographies and created a bio bottle to represent the famous person they chose. They all turned out super cute! In Math, they have been learning about angles, lines, and 2D shapes. Soon they’ll be learning about symmetry and using special mirrors to draw symmetrical figures. Finally, the fourth graders have had lots of fun with LEGO robotics! They have a new challenge each week and this time they created a program to make their robot dance! How cool! Check out their class Instagram page to see all the fun learning happening each week @LittleHooHawks.
Dear HMSA Families,
We are looking forward to seeing you tonight at our Shine Bright at Hoover Night from 6-7:30pm. You will receive a Bingo Card when you enter that highlights many of the activities available tonight. You will be able to visit classrooms to see the creative projects that students have completed throughout the school year, as well enjoy the artwork and music filling the hallways. In the gym, our PTA is providing a special treat to students. Additional family members may purchase treats. See you soon!
Mrs. Laura Rosenblum and Mrs. Megan Ankrom

Room 212 has been working on a lot of creative projects over the last few weeks. We recently finished the “Life of a Water Droplet” journal in science. We also wrapped up our unit on the Silk Road by recording podcasts interviewing historical people who traveled the road. Finally, we are just getting started with our March Reading Madness competition! Working in small groups, we have to read different chapter books to prepare for a question competition during the first week of April. It will be a lot of work, but we enjoy the challenge!
