Fourth Grade Overview

2015-02-25

BIBLE:  Ephesians 2:8-9 – “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.”  The verse test will be on Wednesday, March 11, 2015.

Language Arts:

READING:  We are continuing to read for our F&F Unit: Plot. It is imperative that the children do not get behind on reading for this unit. Test dates are as follows: Skills and Vocabulary Tests on 3/2 and Performance Test on 3/3.

ENGLISH: We will continue a unit on ADVERBS. Due to the snow and my desire that students understand this subject well, I am postponing the test date until the week after Grandparents’ Day. I will let you know more as the time draws nearer. Please work with your child on homework nights to be sure they are on track. It is easy to confuse adverbs and adjectives. However, with the questions I teach the children it is made easier.

SPELLING: List 11 will be sent home on Tuesday in their binder’s spelling section. Test 1 will be on February 27.

WRITING: Students will continue writing/editing/finalizing their “time capsule” letters regarding communication tools in 2015.

Applied Sciences:

MATH: We will continue chapter 8, “Fractions.”  We will continue working on longer division problems and review 2-digit multiplication. The test over this lesson will be on Thursday, March 5.

Please continue to work with your child by using division flash cards at home.

I will have Math Help classes after school on Tuesday and Thursday.

SCIENCE:  We will continue chapter 5, “Systems of the Human Body.”  We will focus on the digestive and nervous systems.

We are practicing hard to prepare for Grandparents’ Day (Friday
