WE HAVE HAD A GREAT START TO THE FOURTH GRADE!!! THANK YOU FOR BEING THE LOVING AND SUPPORTIVE PARENTS THAT YOU ARE. FOURTH GRADE IS AN IMPORTANT YEAR FOR ALL STUDENTS. IN LITERACY, STUDENTS WILL BE WORKING ON MAKING INFERENCES, SUMMARIZING TEXT, AND USING KEY DETAILS IN THE TEXT TO DESCRIBE CHARACTERS, SETTINGS, AND EVENTS. WE WILL ALSO FOCUS ON ANALYZING TEXT TO DISCOVER THEME. THEME WILL BE KEY IN FOURTH GRADE.

IN MATH, STUDENTS WILL DEVELOP AN UNDERSTANDING AND FLUENCY OF MULTI-DIGIT MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION. THEY WILL ALSO DEVELOP AN UNDERSTANDING OF FRACTIONS.

OUR FIRST READ ALOUD BOOK IS FRINDLE BY ANDREW CLEMENTS.

THIS WEEK WE ARE BUILDING A LONGHOUSE TOGETHER TO END OUR SOCIAL STUDIES UNIT ON THE IROQUOIS AND ALGONKIAN INDIANS. WE ALSO PLAYED BASKETBALL VOCABULARY AND HAVE PARTICIPATED IN A MATH RELATED ESCAPE ROOM.

PLEASE SEE SOME PHOTOS BELOW. ALSO BE ON THE LOOK -OUT FOR PHOTOS OF OUR BASEBALL REVIEW GAMES.
