Please join the fourth grade teachers for curriculum night on Wednesday from 7:30-8:00. We will be reviewing the fourth grade curriculum, classroom policies and procedures. Please, due to time and space limitations, parents only for this event.
As a reminder, students will have math homework every night, including finishing any incomplete timed tests. Please always review your child's agenda to ensure that they are writing the homework and not attending Opportunity Club.
Our Learning this Week:
In Spalding, we will enter spelling list 1 in addition to our oral and written phonogram review. We will review syllable patterns and rules 3 and 16.
In language/writing, we will learn about alphabetizing, the phonogram ed, rule 21, and suffixes. We will complete grammar lessons 3-8. We will learn how to write compound sentences.
In reading, we will learn reading strategies and how to use context to discern the meaning of unknown words. We will read How Thor got his Hammer and How Theseus Lifted the Stone. We will continue with our book study and learn about the types of text structures.
In math, we will complete lessons 5, 6, 9, and investigation 1 on ordinal numbers, subtraction problems, adding with regrouping, and number lines. Students will receive a study guide on Friday for the first math test. As a reminder, there will be two study guides: one from Saxon (this one will be titled 1A) and one titled math quiz 1 which will include higher-level questioning and math vocabulary. Students are expected to study both for the test. The teacher will go over the study guide prior to sending it home.
In science, we will continue our study of the structures and functions of plant and animal parts. We will read A76-79 and A 86-93.
In social studies, we will learn about human and physical features (such as mountains, railroads, bays, etc.), we will learn to identify key parts of Arizona on a map, we will also learn about how resources are used to meet people's needs, how natural events can affect humans, and we will work in collaborative groups to apply what we've learned to create our own unique state!
