Essential Question: How do myths, that have been passed down from generation to generation, impact a community?
We are just starting our myth writing unit! This unit will focus on learning about myths from various cultures and how to write a myth. Students are also sharing their myths globally through Penpal Schools. We will have digital pen pals through PenPal Schools. Penpal Schools connects over 100,000 students in more than 170 countries to learn together! They will collaborate through high-quality online courses to learn about cultures, perspectives, and global challenges while practicing language and technology skills. Please have your child share what they are writing about in class!!
New 4th grade mathematicians have been adjusting to math workshop and the growth mindset idea that everyone is born a mathematician. They have been hard at work extending number and shape patterns, determining a rule to a pattern and sharing special features of number and shape patterns. Math terms that we will continue to review are “multiples” and “factors”. Next week mathematicians will have their first math assessment in patterning as well as a district benchmark common assessment on one and two step problem solving.
