We’ve Been Working!

Hi Parents,

In addition to continuing the Getting to Know Each Other process, here is what we’ve been up to in the first two weeks of 4th grade!

Our first unit of study in Reading lays the groundwork for good reading habits. Students are taught how to set reading goals, choose a Just Right book, read actively, and build reading stamina. We are enjoying Stone Fox as our mentor text.
As we dig into writing Personal Narratives, we are learning to generate ideas of what to write by thinking about Special People, Special Places, and Strong Emotions. We also are learning to add sensory details to help the reader experience the story.
We are tackling numbers up to 1 Million in math this first unit! Students are learning how to model and read and write numbers in standard form (24), word form (twenty-four), and expanded form (20 + 4). We are also rounding numbers!
The first unit of Social Studies is all about Economics. We are first revisiting what was learned in 3rd grade by discussing Michigan’s State Economy before taking our discussions to the U.S. level.
As you can see, we have been working hard!
Please don’t hesitate to ask questions!
Enjoy your week!
