What’s Up in 4th Grade :)

Hi Parents,

Here’s what we’ve been up to!

Math- we are digging into Unit 4 tackling story problems with all four operations, finding factor pairs and generating/analyzing number patterns.

Reading- Nonfiction Book reading skills. Reading, responding to text and sharing topics that we are learning with others.

Writing-Literary Essay. Using a BIG Idea, we will prove our point by using evidence from lessons that authors teach us within the books we read in class.

Social Studies- We are wrapping up our last lessons on the Federal Government and will be taking a test soon. Study materials will be coming home.

Science is on the way!!

Toys for Tots

Listen to Ainslee and Holiday Cheer Team’s  Toys for Tots Message:  1. “Toys for Tots”

Do you know about Toys for Tots? It’s a great charity that provides happiness and joy to kids on Christmas morning. They cannot do this without our help.

This year, we have set a school donation goal of 100 toys.  

Bring a new, unwrapped toy to school before December 13.  Toys for Tots will distribute these toys to kids in need throughout our community.

What We’re Working On in the Classroom

Hi Parents!

Can you believe that we’re already well into October!?

Here is a quick snapshot of what we’re working on…

This week it’s BE NICE, BE SAFE, BE AN UPSTANDER.  We will be talking about what it looks like to be safe and be nice – as well as ways to stand up for others. We often talk about TREATING OTHERS THE WAY WE WANT TO BE TREATED 🙂

In Reading, we’ve begun Unit 2- Analyzing Characters and Reading The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo.

We are presently writing our very own Realistic Fiction Story based on our own real life experiences.

Currently, we are tackling Unit 2 Math which is all about Multiplication! It is always very helpful for your child to practice math facts (pretty please?).

In Social Studies, we are learning about the United States in spacial terms- map/globe skills, landforms, and how humans interact with the earth.

Enjoy your week!
