What are we learning this week?
English Language Arts (ELA):
Have you ever thought about what it would be like to on the prairie in the 1800s? This week, we’ll be using a non-fiction piece called, “Surviving the Prairie” to writing about how hard it really was to survive on the prairie during these times. We’ll be using two-column notes to organize our thoughts. The students are doing a fantastic job with growing in their ability to use evidence to support ideas. The reading log is due on October 31. Has your child been working to reach the goal of a total of at least 240 minutes? The reading log counts as a grade, please encourage your child to stay on course to reach this goal!
We are working hard to continue to go from using Base 10 Blocks, to representational drawings to abstract multiplication. The students have been practicing the Distributive Property, area models, partial products and more to multiply!
We will begin a unit on the Scientific Process at the end of October.
Our PA Native American Exhibit is scheduled for Tuesday. You are welcome to visit the 4th grade exhibits from 2:40-3:10. Projects will go home on Tuesday after the exhibit! Please be sure you read the note above about timing for the parking lot!
