Fourth Grade Overview

   May 3, 2016

BIBLE: Ephesians 2:10 – For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”   The verse test will be on Tuesday, May 17, 2016.

Language Arts:

READING:  Students have their study materials for the last F&F unit, Drawing Conclusions, in their binders’ F&F section. They will need to know vocab, synonyms, pattern statement, indicated questions, and visual tool (with labels) for the testing. Vocabulary & Skills Testing will be on Wednesday, May 18. There will be NO Performance test for this unit. The book project stands in its place.

**Book Project is due this Thursday, May 5. It MUST be on a book your child has read since January 2016. Students should do the work on their own. I will not accept projects until the week of the project due to a lack of space.

ENGLISH: Students will be labeling sentences using all the parts of speech they have learned so far. They will also be learning the last two parts of speech – interjections and conjunctions.

SPELLING: Spelling List 14 and the corresponding Activity Sheet are in binders. The list is on Spelling City now. Activity Sheets are due on Wednesday, May 4, and the Spelling test will be on Friday, May 6, which gives them an extra week to study due to achievement testing.

Applied Sciences:

MATH:  The test over chapter 12, “Metric Measurements”, will be on Thursday, May 5.  We will review division and multiplication.  

**Remember XtraMath!!!!!  

We have 11 Fourth graders that have completed the multiplication and division tests.
