Washington State History


Hey Washingtonians!

Here is the slide show from today's class. You can use this video to complete a few sections of your state project this week.

Most of the information you need for the timeline is in the lesson. More timeline dates and details can be found on the 50 State Guide.

State reports are not due until December 18. That's because I expect them to be accurate, colorful, detailed, and complete! 

The report below is not quite complete, but you can tell this student is off to a great start!

If you would like to share what you've done so far, you can k-mail, e-mail, or text a picture of it to me. I love seeing your work!

BREATHE on Test Day



Many of you are taking the state assessment this week. Others will take it soon! Since the test dates are different for everyone, depending on where you live, I thought I should share this with everyone now.

Students, when taking the ELA test remember what we learned about answering all parts of the question. If it is a written response, you should use the RACE method when answering. Cite evidence to "prove" your answer is correct.

ELA & Math Review - Look through your CC math and SLASH notebooks to review what we've learned this year!

Study Island is also available to help you review and practice before the tests.

OOPS! Sorry if you are singing "Let it gooooooooooooo..." for the next 12 hours.


A few reminders...

On the day of your test:
  • Be on time.
  • Bring a photo ID (adult's drivers license, student ID, etc.).
  • Use R.A.C.E. when answering open-ended questions completely.
  • HULK UP your answers by citing evidence from the text, video, graphic features, etc.
  • Bring headphones, if you have them (you can also use noise-cancellation headphones!).
  • You can chew gum during the test, if it will help you focus.
  • Don't forget to BREATHE...

You will do a great job, I know it! I am already proud of you.

Happy Testing!
Mrs. Sol

Washington State Symbols


What a great group of students I have. Nice job today! It's so fun to learn about Washington State with y'all!

Here are the slides from today's lesson. Feel free to use this information to help you with your Washington Report Poster. You can fast-forward, rewind and pause as needed!

Here is a video which features Washington's State Dance!

This is Washington's State Song (that will get stuck in your head for 3 days).
Click here for the lyrics.

Turn up your speakers for both! 

State reports are not due until May 26. That's because I expect them to be accurate, colorful, detailed, and complete! 

The report below is not quite complete, but you can tell this student is off to a great start!

I can't wait to see them!

Next Stop... WASHINGTON!


Hey Washingtonians!

I'm excited to learn about Washington State with you. Over the next few weeks 4th graders will learn about Washington and complete a super cool project!

Print the report pages and complete each section as we go.

When you are finished, you will create an 11 x 25.5"  
Washington State Poster by connecting the 3 pages together!

Bring your report pages to class each week, so you can add information as we learn about our great state! Check your e-mail or the CC recording for printable pages.

You will mail your final project to me and I will admire it!

This assignment is worth 100 points in the gradebook. 

On Monday, April 17, we will continue our Washington journey, by discovering our state's symbols!

See you in CC on April 17 at 10:00 AM!
