Fourth Grade Newsletter
I encourage you to look at my website (on the M-NES page, under the directory link). There are links to study guides and Blendspace pages where the students can go to review all of the fractions concepts that we've been studying.
Force, Motion, and Energy is our current science unit. This unit is taught using toys and activities that your child will participate in. Vocabulary words such as force, motion, speed, gravity, and friction will be learned as students engage in experiments. Students will also learn scientific investigation words such as hypothesis and variables. I encourage you to discuss with your child our class activities and use the vocabulary words to describe force and motion at a football game, as they ride their bicycles, and as they play games. Because force and motion concepts applies to so much in their young lives, that discussion should be rich and interesting.
On Monday of this week, students received a list of vocabulary words that we will learn about in class and will be tested on this Friday, December 4th. Next Monday, they will receive the study guide for the unit. The unit test on Force, Motion, and Energy will be given on Tuesday, December 15th. Please make sure that your student is reviewing what they learn in class each day. Students can also study using www.Zondle.com , www.solpass.org , and www.tes.com/lessons .
