Fantastic Fourth Grade
Peek at the Week
Here is what is coming up next week!
Writing-The students are beginning to plan and develop their expository composition. They will learn the 4 types of leads as well and practice developing each type of lead with their own topic.
Reading-We are beginning a unit on Media literacy and will be learning how words, images, graphics, and sounds work together in various forms to impact meaning.
Math-We are deepening our understanding of fractions by looking at mixed and improper fractions and how they relate to one another. We are also still looking at real life examples of fractions and decimals such as money, number lines, and measurement to extend our knowledge.
Science-We are looking at how we can describe the sequences and how we can predict the patterns in shadows, tides, seasons, and the phases of the Moon.
Texas History-The students are studying the colonization of Texas and how it impacted the future of Texas.
