Below is an overview for this week. As always, please let me know if you have any questions. Have a great week!!

Reading

This week we will be focusing on poetry. We will discuss the structure of poetry.


Your child will also be reading a novel, based on his/her reading level, with a small group of students. We are working on answering higher-level questions over our reading by analyzing, evaluating, and creating.


We will also be reading passages. Please reference Canvas to view the articles. There is a link to Canvas below.

Math

We are beginning on Unit 11 (3-D Shapes, Weight, Volume, and Capacity) this week. Since your child is able to bring his/her iPad home a couple times of week, please make sure he/she is practicing math facts at home. You can even challenge your child to a contest of who can answer the most facts in an allotted time. Some of the students have become extremely fast!! The 4th grade goal is fifty questions in three minutes!

Writing

All students should be finished with the written portion of their Fractured Fairy Tales for our Young Author books! There are extremely creative. I am looking forward to the students writing the stories in their books!

Homework

Your child will have homework each night. The reading log is due on Friday. Also, MobyMax is a great website for your child to practice at his/her instructional level. The link is below.
