The Fourth grade is a great place to be.
The first nine weeks we will be focusing on Context Clues,Author's Purpose, Suffixes,Antonyms, Synonyms and Text Features . Reading and comprehending both fiction and nonfiction texts is essential to making your school experience successful. Students should read every evening for at least 20 minutes. To become better at anything, you must first practice. Students are encouraged to read a book of their choice each day in class as part of their seat work. Reading what they are interested in, is important to developing a life long reader.
We started the year off investigating the geography of Virginia. Regions, Rivers and waterways, bordering states, etc. We are currently studying the Virginia American Indians, both past and present. It is exciting to know that The American Indians live among us even today.
