The 4th Grade News
Week of April 27th, 2015
A Note from Ms. Deal
I hope you all are enjoying this beautiful weather. Spring is such a fun time at SCIS. We have so many wonderful events going on. This time of year can be overwhelming, so please email me with any questions or clarifications.
The biggest project on the horizon for fourth grade is Market Day. I have sent home an information sheet with dates and other specifics to help clarify what your student will be working on. By next Friday, the fourth graders will need to meet with me about what they are planning to do for their business. On Monday, May 4th, their consumer survey is due.
Also, please note that swimming has officially ended, so you do not need to pack swim bags anymore. Thank you to those of you that helped us at the Pearl Market on Tuesday. This trip was a huge success!
Enjoy the long weekend!

Last week the 4th graders created a nature poster to celebrate Earth Day.
In Math the fourth graders use fraction sticks to help compare different fractions.
On Tuesday we went to the Pearl Market to observe different goods, services, wants and needs.
Writing: For the past two weeks we have been studying poetry. Each student has created a color poem and powerpoint to showcase their efforts! Each Wednesday your child will have a writing assignment from me, due on Thursday.
Reading: This week the students continue to practice their "close reading" skills. We look at different nonfiction texts about Economy and closely read the passages together. We are discussing "look-back" strategies and summarizing skills.
