Fourth Grade Overview
 March 19 - 23, 2018

BIBLE:  Continue working on our memory verse passage:  John 1:1-5 (ESV). Our next verse test #9 is scheduled for Wednesday, March 21, 2018, and will cover the following verses:  John 1:3-4  (ESV).
    John 1:3-4 (ESV)
3 “All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. 4 In him was life,a and the life was the light of men.” 
***  Students should be prepared for some kind of review quiz (verbal or word bank) of verses 1 through 2 so that we can keep the entire passage fresh on our mind.  
John 1:1-2 (ESV)
1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.   
2 He was in the beginning with God.”

Language Arts:
: We have started a new unit, Plot. Students will NOT have reading homework. Reading will be done in class. New study materials will be in the F&F section of your child’s binder.  Please begin reviewing vocabulary this week.

SPELLING: No new spelling lists will be distributed until after Spring Break!

ENGLISH: This upcoming week we will begin our next unit. In this unit, students will work with adverbs, prepositions, and prepositional phrases. They will identify adverbs and use them to compare actions. Students will also learn to use good and well and negatives (no or not) correctly. In Writer’s Workshop, students will work on making their writing clearer by incorporating these parts of speech and phrases. 

SPANISH: Students should be working on their special communities projects for Spanish.

Applied Sciences:
:  We will wrap up this unit on Decimals and Fractions next week.  I think it will be pushing things to have a test by next week so we will just give a short quiz on Friday, March 23, on what we have covered so far.

SOCIAL STUDIES: We will finish our study of the 5 regions of the United States.  We will focus on the Southwest and West regions. There will be a test over Group 5 of the States and Capitals on Friday, March 23.
