Moving Mountains in Fourth Grade

Class News

The first six weeks of fourth grade have flown by! In Language Arts Black, we have continued to read Science Squad: Porpoises in Peril. We have been analyzing a texts' story structure, looking deeper in sequencing events and using context clues to identify an unknown word. We have taken a quiz on grammar skills discussed in the first four lessons of our Simple Solutions Grammar Workbook. Unit 3 of Spelling Connections began Monday and will continue next week. Our Unit 3 Spelling Assessment will take place on Friday, October 5th. In writing, we have been digging deep into sentence writing- looking at complete and incomplete sentences, learning about paragraph structure, topic sentences, rocking beginnings, and relevant details of a paragraph. We have been cruising through our Math Chapter. The students will be taking the Chapter 1 Summative Assessment at the end of next week. Today the 4th graders hosted the Grand Friends Mass! The students have worked so hard practicing and preparing for the big event. They all did a fabulous job!
