Fourth Grade News
For the week of November 28, 2016
This Week's Focus:
Writing - We will begin our unit on informational writing this week. We will review the 3 purposes for writing, as well as identify the characteristics of informational writing as we explore various samples.
Math - Students will continue to work on multiplying one digit by up to four digit numbers and they will begin division this week. Solving wold problems will also so be a big part of the week. Students should be circling important numbers, boxing key words, and underlining the question. These are all important to organize information, ensure the question is being answered, and that the answer is reasonable (Does the answer make sense?).
Science - Students will be working with a partner to research their natural disaster (Tsunamis, wildfires, tornados, hurricanes, landslides,mudslides, and avalanches, volcanic eruptions, winter storms, earthquakes, floods and droughts, and thunderstorms). As students complete their research, they will create a slide show to present to the class.
Social Studies - We will create flash cards to reinforce the states, capitals, and abbreviations for the Southeast Region.
