4th Grade News!

Reading Corner

We are finishing up our 4th learning experience on inferring and finding text structure. We are wrapping up looking at infographics and interpreting their data and making inferences from them. Our 5th learning experience will begin next week reading the novel, Wonder. We will be looking at point of view as well as character, setting and events.

Math Maniacs

4th grade is working on FRACTIONS! We have been working on equivalent, comparing and putting fractions on a number line before the snow blizzard came! Now, we are moving into adding and subtracting fractions with like and unlike denominators. See the link below for assistance.

Science Center

WE WILL BE RECEIVING CRAYFISH AND BESS BEETLES! Yay! The kids are going to observe structures of both creatures and compare and contrast. Students will also begin growing plants in soil as well as hydroponically.

Writing Nook

We have started our research projects on their own selected topic. Ask your child their topic...Colonial Maryland, An African American Leader or one of the Seven Wonders of the World. They will research, take notes, and write an information piece and then present their research via technology!

Social Studies Connector

We have started learning about Colonial Maryland. We know how the colony began as well as how they lived right here in our area in the 1600-1700's. Check out some fun websites!
