Mrs. Lynch 4th Grade Class
Tell me I forget. Teach me I remember. Involve me I learn.
Our class has teamed up with the 2nd and 3rd grade class to help sell Little Caesar pizza kits to raise money for our classroom. Mrs. Cantrell and Myself have agreed on a goal of $2,000.00. If our classes can raise this amount we are going to take our students out for a movie reward. If your child can sell at least 5 pizza kits we will easily reach our goal. Thank you for your support in your child's education.
Here is a look at what we did this week:
In Reading: We are learning how to use informational text to become an expert on a specific topic. Your child has chosen an article and they will be creating a power point to teach us what they learned. Ask them what they are reading you will be very impressed with the article they chose.
In Writing: I haven't finished grading your child's opinion essay yet, but it will be in next weeks Friday folder. This week we started understanding the difference between an opinion essay and a persuasive essay. Each child was asked to choose a topic that has two sides. The goal is to see if the writer can persuasive their readers into thinking how they do. I am excited to see how these essays unfold.
In Math: Chapter 3 math test is in this weeks Friday folder. We have started chapter 4 this week. This chapter will teach your child different strategies in division.
In Social Studies: We are still learning about each region within the United States. We have finished two regions and will be starting the Midwest on Tuesday.
Science: Our Animal unit is finally over. Your child's graded test is in their Friday folder. I am offering one do over to those students that would like to try to improve their test scores. Overall I was very pleased at how well everyone did. We will be starting our energy and movement unit and it will be lots of fun!!
