Math: We have been flying through math! We will begin Topic 8 which focuses on gaining fluency of multiplying two digit numbers by two digit numbers. Students will first begin with multiplying two digit numbers by multiples of ten and then move to a variety of two digit numbers.
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. Students will use the information gained to compare and contrast as well as sequence events along a timeline.
Writing: Students are writing their personal narratives. Students will learn about figurative language such as similes, metaphors and idioms. This unit will also 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 are continuing our PACE Science Task. Students are asked to create a solution to an erosion problem here at school. Students will research, conduct a controlled experiment, design a solution and conduct an experiment to test their solution.
The field trip to the New Hampshire State House has been moved to February 24th at 12pm. I understand that this is the "Big Day" for all our fourth grade performers in Singing in the Rain. I apologize for the scheduling conflict, this is the time they had available.
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.
