Mrs. Faccio's 4th Grade Newsletter
What's Up in the Classroom?
Writing - Grammar has been the focus for the last couple of weeks but we are moving on next week to research writing. Students will be researching a Native American group from Wisconsin. They will have guiding questions but they will also get to add information of their choice to their report to show their understanding of their chosen tribe.
Social Studies - Students will finish up a rotation on Monday that taught them about 4 specific Native American tribes from Wisconsin. They will then pick one tribe to further research.
Spelling - Students will have a new sort next week.
Language Arts - Making inferences is the focus for next week. Students will learn how to use details and examples from a text to explain what the text says explicitly and to draw inferences from the text.
January 23 - End of quarter 2
January 24 - No school for students
