4th Grade News: January
Happy New Year!
1. Please make sure your child is here by 8:30 if they want breakfast. We are having students walk in the door when the bell rings and expect breakfast. We are to begin instruction promptly at 9AM.
2. Homework is given on Mondays: spelling, math and reading. Those are due on Fridays. MANY,MANY students are not completely this work. It is imperative that you check your students back packs frequently throughout the week.
Thanks for your support!

What are we learning?
We have begun our fourth learning experience and the topic is weathering and erosion and Woodland Indians. We have begun looking at weathering erosion that is occurring at Niagara Falls as well as right here in Washington County.
Your kids are becoming knowledgeable on these topics. Please ask them how the text is structured as well as looking at any charts, graphs, maps and any text features as you read at home.
We have begun working on fractions. We are working on equivalent fractions for example, 1/2=2/4, comparing fractions, fractions on a number line as well finishing up with adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators.
I am sure your fourth graders have lots of opinions, get them talking! This will spark ideas to write about!
