Fourth Grade Happenings

Week of February 22nd


Genre: Fairy Tales

Focus: Reading with Expression

This week we will be doing a version of The Gingerbread Boy for our reader's theater. Here is a link to the book online for them to use at home.

The more they practice, the more fluent they become and fluency leads to EXPRESSION!


We will continue decomposing fractions with diagrams and number models. There will be a QR code on their homework that will link them straight to the instructional videos if needed! They will not be required to complete the packet every night. Most nights, I will assign a particular section for them to do for extra practice at home.

This site gives you access to printable HW pages if forgotten and the tutorial videos.

Social Studies:

We begin our study of the Southeast Region of the United States. The kiddos have added a purple set of flashcards to their rings. They should study a little each night. We will spend three weeks on the SE and will take a quiz over them just before spring break.

States and Capitals Rap:


TEST WEDNESDAY! They will need to complete their study guide using their book and notebook.

Science Day is Thursday!! The kids will rotate to each classroom and do some fun, hands-on activities! Look for pictures on Twitter!
