Fourth Grade Newsletter
We are so excited about the Texas Revolution that we will be reading about it during reading this week! As we read, we will use strategies to organize information from a nonfiction text, including keeping a timeline and identifying main idea and details.
Students will be studying strong student samples of essay writing. We will be identifying the structure of the essays (introduction, parts, and conclusion,) elaboration techniques, and craft.
During social studies, we will specifically be examining early conflicts between the Mexican government and the Texan settlers. On Friday, we will start analyzing the events of the battle of the Alamo. The following websites are great resources both for our studies in class, and for help with the Texas Revolution Project which is due March 3.
