Math: We have wrapped up topic 4 which covered addition and subtraction of whole numbers and will be moving into topic 5. Topic 5 circles back around to multiplication. More specifically, arrays, multiplying by 10 and 200, solving problems with Mental Math as well as rounding to estimate.
Reading: We will be moving into informational texts. Students will look at how a nonfiction piece is constructed as well as learn how to use a nonfiction piece to ask and answer questions.
Writing: Students are writing their personal narratives. This unit will take the students though the writing process. At the end, students will have a personal narrative in which they have published by hand or electronically.
Science: We have conducted a few experiments that have focused on the changes on the earths surface. All of the experiments and work that we do are in preparation for our Science Pace Performance Task which we hope to take when we return from winter break.
As the weather gets colder, please make sure students are coming to school properly dressed. Fourth grade students are only allowed to play on the field if they have boots on.
F.Y.I: We are using a four day block schedule. This means that specials are not always on the same day of the week, but are always in the same order. See our class schedules for the order for your class. Also, please make sure your child has appropriate footwear on the days they have P.E.
