Welcome to Grade 4!
Students continue to read a variety of stories of different genres. They are working on expanding their vocabulary and using their comprehension skills of fact and opinion, main idea and details, graphic resources and inference to improve their reading. They are working on plays to be presented to the third grade. The class has been divided into 3 groups, Jack and the Beanstalk, Pandora’s Box and Aesop’s Fables.
In math, students are working on long division. This is a challenging skill. We will be starting geometry soon. They will also practicing their math facts and reviewing for Iowa Testing which will take place next month.
In science, students are studying about ecosystems.
In social studies, students are studying about the Southwest Region of the United States. They are learning about the geography, economy and people of the region. They will be using chrome books to research a southwestern state and will make a poster of that state. In religion, students will be learning about confirmation and what it means to be a member of the Church. Students did an outstanding job on first Friday Mass and their Lenten prayer service. I am very proud of their effort! Easter is coming soon.
We are very busy!
