We’ve Been Busy!

Hi Parents,

We’ve been busy in 4th grade! Here’s what we’ve been up to!

Math- we are digging into Unit 6 and learning about fractions! Our focus is on fractions with like denominators, mixed numbers with like denominators, and multiplying fractions and whole numbers.

Reading- the students are grouped into Historical Fiction Book Clubs! We are gaining knowledge on the subject of World War 2, learning about D-Day, Pearl Harbor, and Nazi Invasions. Our current read aloud is Number the Stars.

Writing- after wrapping up Personal Essay, we press on to tackle Literary Essay. Using a BIG Idea, we will prove our point by gathering evidence from lessons that authors teach us within the books we read in class.

Language Arts- we continue to work on capital letters, end punctuation, punctuating dialogue, nouns, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, and long vowel patterns.

Black History- we are learning about the important contributions of brave pioneers (Ruby Bridges, Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks…), Sports Figures (Jackie Robinson, Muhammad Ali, Jesse Owens…), Artists (Maya Angelou, Ella Fitzgerald…) and others!
