A ROAD TRIP

THROUGH FOURTH GRADE

 

What's Happening This Week?

 

 

Language Arts:

We have started a new adventure with shared reading, The One and Only Ivan!  This story is fiction but based on a real gorilla who was captive for over 20 years.  Students will be exposed to lots of figurative language throughout this book as well as broad themes.  We will study and research pros and cons of zoos; and then formulate our own opinions.  Ask your child about Ivan!!

 

Next Spelling Test: Wednesday, March 13

Next Vocabulary Test: Friday, March 22

 

Math:

Please continue to practice multiplication and division of larger numbers with your child at home to strengthen  their skills and confidence.  We are exploring fractions this month.  It is a very in depth concept and heavily tested on by the state.

 

Health: 

We have begun our study of the Human Body Systems.  This will include the following: Skeletal, Muscular, Digestive, Circulatory, Respiratory and Nervous Systems.
