Fearless in 4th!
January 10, 2017
January 10: School resumes
January 16: NO SCHOOL
Math: We are reviewing equivalent fractions, comparing fractions, and placing fractions on the number line. Then we will move onto relating fractions and decimals.
*Don't forget that your learners can access IXL at home and the game Prodigy. Both websites are excellent ways to have your 4th graders practice math skills!
Reading: We are reviewing main idea and providing supporting details for the main idea.
Writing: We will finish our lessons on dialogue and then we will work on implementing dialogue into a realistic fiction piece.
You can see most of their writing pieces on their google drive! Go to google.com, have your learn log-in like they do at school and then they can pull up their work!
Spelling: This week we are focusing on Greek and Latin roots and with that we are learning how to spell the roots that we are focusing on.
Science: We are moving onto our weather unit!
Social Studies: This week we will be discussing the Northeast region's climate, people, region, etc. while making sure we have not forgotten the capitals of each state!
Our Twitter account is for educational purposes only and for you to see what is happening in 4M!
Each week, I will be implementing a lesson on Tuesday's about the idea of being "mindful," which is the ability to be fully aware of yourself as you are in the moment. This requires one to be aware of their surroundings and what is happening right now.
This week our lesson is, "How to Recognize MY Feelings." This comes down to basic needs and their feelings, reactions, etc. to those basic needs which often drives behavior and moods. Often kids don't know why they are acting the way they are, this lesson will help them reflect on it. Not only that, they may just recognize it before it becomes a problem and come up with a solution :-)
