Ms. Kessinger's Fourth Grade Class

This Week In Room 214

January 11-January 15


This week we are continuing to work with decimals. We will discuss how to order and compare decimals, how decimals are related to money, and how equivalent fractions can be used to find decimals.


This week, we are beginning our unit surrounding the text "The Fisherman and His Wife". Throughout this unit, we will be practicing our close reading strategies. We will discuss character traits, themes, and how characters change throughout stories.


We are kicking off this quarter with our Force and Motion unit. We will cover the basic concepts and terminology, and then put our knowledge to the test with an awesome hands-on Hot Wheels "Speedometry" unit.

Vocabulary Words:

Attempt, Confuse, Disaster, Entertain, Furious, Host, Inspire, Mock, Pointless, Routine

Reading Logs due Friday!

*Please note that your child's AR goal starts over at the beginning of each quarter. To prevent the stress of getting their AR points at the last minute, please encourage your child to read as much as they can at home!
