tales from a fourth grade classroom...
WELCOME TO THE 2ND HALF OF 4TH GRADE!!
This quarter, in Math will be all about fractions. In reading, we will be focusing on some of the following skills: Meanings of words and allusions in Mythology, comparing and contrasting themes and also firsthand and secondhand accounts of the same event, text structure, and understanding multiple types of text. I am also excited that we will be switching over to Science for the second half of the year. Some of the units that we will study are Nutrition, Types of Energy, Fossils, Moon Phases, and Ecosystems. Finally, in writing we will be working on Informational Writing and Researching topics such as the NC Lighthouses that we will be visiting on our trip to the Outer Banks.
We are going to be busy!! :-)
-scissors (several students do not have their own pair)
-BLACK dry erase markers... and LOTS of them please! (many have gotten dried out. Students use these A LOT.)
-If you have extra games that you would be willing to donate for indoor recess time, we would LOVE to have them!
-if you have a football that you would like to donate for our outside recess (ours found its way over the fence never to be seen again!)
