Fourth Grade Overview

September 17-21

BIBLE:  With the field trip, we had to push back our 1st Verse Test to this coming Friday, September 21st. So glad our 4th graders were able to get off campus! Our first verse test will be over our school verse of the year: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”  Romans 15:13 (ESV)

LANGUAGE ARTS: We are wrapping up our current English unit. Our test over this unit will be on Tuesday, September 25, 2018. We have done some reviewing along the way, and we will take the day before the test to review as well. Students will also have the opportunity to make test corrections the day after the test.

READING: We will finish Unit 1: Main Idea in our F&F reading program. Study materials are in the back of your child’s binder. Skills and Performance Tests - Monday, September 17.  Students will be working on in-class book reports the remainder of the week before starting a new unit, Sequence of Events. ** For the tests, students should study a few minutes every night to prepare. Test this week will cover memorization of pattern statement, visual tool name, visual tool (draw/label), and the marked process questions.

SPELLING: Word List 3 and a Spelling Activity Sheet 3 will be placed in the spelling section of binders early this week. Spelling Activity Sheet is DUE on Wednesday, September 26, and Spelling Test 2 will be on Friday, September 28.

MATH: Students’ math tests will be in the Tuesday folder.  They have been given the opportunity to correct their tests for partial credit.  This is a good way for me to determine if they need further instruction or if they were just careless.  

Our next chapter will be a quick review of addition and subtraction patterns and properties.

SOCIAL STUDIES: This is a busy week. We will have an open book test on all the terms in chapter 8 on Wednesday, September 19. On Thursday, the students will attend a Puritan church service and have a Colonial school lesson. Friday is “Barter Day”, and our trip to the farm.  Students should be working on their VIP Revolutionary War Project. Students should be picking out items to barter on Friday.
