Welcome back after two weeks away from school. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. Happy New Year!
For the month of January, in science 4R students will finish up the topic, Waste and Our World. You can expect a test on this unit within the second week of school. We will be working on Wheels and Levers. The students will explain how rollers can be used to move an object, demonstrate how a wheel and axle works and describe the operation of a gear system. We are also completing multiplying and dividing larger numbers. There will be a test on these concepts within the first week back from holidays. In social studies, the grade fours will be looking at Alberta's badlands. They will learn how the discovery of fossils is a big part of Alberta's identity. In language, we will start going through the twelve strategies for understanding reading. This months focus will be on main idea and details along with fact and opinion. In our writing of the story we are looking for dialogue, details and paragraphing.
