This Week in Fourth Grade!
Welcome back to school! I hope your break was fun and relaxing! We have a very fun week ahead of us! The spotlight is on Maddy this week. We are looking forward to learning more about her! Here’s what’s happening this week:
Math: This week we will be learning about several different things: estimating sums of two- and three-digit numbers, different ways to write the time, and multiplying by 10, 100, 1,000, and 10,000. We will be having an assessment on Thursday over the things we’ve been learning recently! We will also be having the previously announced Fact Test on Wednesday. It will cover the same basic multiplication facts found on our trials from previous weeks. Keep practicing those facts!
Reading: This week we are reading Energy Makes Things Happen and learning about different types of energy. We will also continue to explore Latin roots and the ways that prefixes and suffixes change their meanings.
Language Arts: We will be starting our instructional narrative pieces this week. We will each write instructions on how to complete a task of our choice. In Grammar we will learn about pronouns, types of sentences, and how to use quotation marks. Our spelling words this week contain roots and affixes. Make sure you study those words!
Science: This week will finish up chapter 3! We will begin reviewing on Thursday, and have our Chapter 3 test on Tuesday, October 22nd. We will finish up the chapter by learning about pollination and the plant life cycle!
Religion: In Religion this week we will continue learning about Abram and Sarai. We will also explore the seven Sacraments! On Thursday, we have the privilege of attending the Living Rosary with the student body!
