4th Grade Math

This week, we continued to work on pre-algebra skills. Students have learned to simplify expressions and combine like terms. They have practiced working with order of operations and have found patterns in numbers.

AT Reading

Students have been working independently this week in their regular classrooms due to PARCC testing. They are learning to infer and predict, write persuasive pieces of writing, examine primary and secondary sources of information, and visualize as they read.
