Fantastic Fourth Grade
Peek at the Week
Here is what is coming up next week!
Reading: We have begun looking at informational text structures such as Description, Cause & Effect, Problem & Solution, Compare & Contrast, and Order & Sequence. We are learning how authors use these structures in non-fiction text and are working on identifying these in real life texts.
Writing: We are beginning a brand new prompt and are really looking at the components of an expository and taking our time to really spend time on writing our best.
Math: We are working on our Geometry unit. We have learned how to classify angles as either, Acute, Obtuse, Straight or Right and we have also learned how to measure angles using a protractor. We will be learning more about measuring angles and how to classify triangles.
Science: We finished our mixtures and solutions unit and will begin working on our Renewable and Non-renewable resources unit. Students will learn about different renewable resources this week and what makes them renewable.
Texas History: The students are learning about the Texas Frontier and how the expanding economy affected settlements in Texas.
