This week in 4th grade:
English: We are studying common and proper nouns. (ch.10)
Reading: We are reading the story How to Babysit an Orangutan starting on Monday as we work on summarizing, nonfiction text structures, and defining words through structural analysis.
Spelling: Beginning Monday we will be studying words with the /ou/ sound. (see below)
Math: We are concluding topic 3 by solving word problems that require us to work with place values and patterns. Topic 4 will focus on addition and subtraction of whole numbers (including mental math, estimation, and large sums/differences).
Religion: We are studying each of the Ten Commandments and what they mean to us. So you know, I am combining chapters 3, 11, and 15 since they are all about the Ten Commandments.
Science: We are discussing how ecosystems are balanced and how organisms in these ecosystems interact. (ch.4)
Social Studies: We are studying immigration and Ellis Island, the Women’s Rights and Abolitionist Movements, and vertical timelines. (ch.5)
Have a great week!
