The first 8 weeks of school have flown by! With about one more month of the first trimester (cannot believe it!), we have reviewed our guidelines of Fourth Grade- including our grading scale! We have posted our school’s grading school below.
In Language Arts, we are wrapping up reading our fiction story Science Squad: Porpoises in Peril and moving into our biography Mary Anning: The Girl Who Cracked Open the World. Students have been looking at the different parts of paragraph writing (topic sentences, closing sentences, and the juicy details in the middle). Please encourage your child to write in complete sentences in ALL subjects. In Math, we have been working on multiplication models in the first two lessons of our Chapter 2. In Science, the students have wrapped up Unit 1 Lesson 2 and will be moving into the third lesson. Classrooms have been reviewing the factors of weather and climate, learning about humidity and the rain cycle as well as discussing the different types of climate in Social Studies. In Religion, we have been talking about the Beatitudes and how to live life as a disciple of Jesus.
