    In writing, the kids have been working on finishing their persuasive essays. They have some great thesis statements with supporting evidence. Ask your child what he or she is writing about! Later this week, they will begin thinking about choosing a country to research and write about in preparation for the Multicultural Fair. I am hoping to have this the week before April Vacation, but I will send something home as we get closer with more specifics.


    The 4th graders have been immersed in an author study called “Reading Like a Fan”. As a class we have been reading texts by Patricia Polacco. Some students have been continuing to read more books by her independently, while others are reading multiple texts by other authors that they have chosen or from text sets I have provided. So far we have spent time paying attention to the characters and settings in multiple books written by the same author. When you compare and contrast these story elements you begin to notice patterns and can gain some insight into who the author is as a person as well as into his or her life.  



    In math we are working on our first fraction unit, which is focused on understanding fractions, finding equivalent fractions, and comparing them. They have used fraction strips, area models, number lines, as well as multiplication and division. This week they will also learn how to find a common denominator to compare fractions that have different numerators and denominators. The next unit will be focused on addition and subtraction of fractions as well as breaking fractions apart.
