What's Happening in Fourth Grade
This week we will wrap up our first unit. We have been building a community of readers. We have learned how to share our ideas as reading partners, and what to do when reading gets difficult. At our reading celebration on Friday we will make bookmarks that show our favorite kinds of books and strategies we can use if we struggle when reading new texts.
Our launching unit will also finish this week. Students will work on the leads of the their personal narratives and practice paragraphing. At our Publishing Party on Friday 4th graders will silently share their writing in a gallery walk. For grammar and conventions, we will do a quick review punctuating declarative sentences.
Students will finish learning about the regions of Texas. Next up, Native American Tribes in Texas!
