4th Grade Newsletter

February 18-February 21

English Language Arts

This week we are starting our Energy unit. Students will be learning and reviewing vocabulary words like force, motion, inertia, speed, gravity, and friction. We will also be discussing kinetic and potential energy. Students will be creating roller coasters, so please continue to send in your empty toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls. We need many more by Wednesday and Thursday of this week!!

Math

We are continuing on with Topic 12: Adding and Subtracting Fractions and Mixed Numbers with Like Denominators. Students are doing really well with understanding how to add and subtract the fractions, however they continue to struggle with reducing the fractions to simplest form. We will continue to go over this concept throughout the unit.
