Getting to Work
4th Graders On a Roll (A good one, Like High Quality Sushi)
Social Studies: We have transplanted ourselves to the Northeast Region by reading all about the Land and the Economy so far. The kids have been surprised by how large the Appellation Mountains are being that they stretch from Maine all the way to Georgia. They also were very excited to read about the Hershey's chocolate factory (the largest in the world) and many suggested that we take a class field trip! Here are some of our students partner reading about the Northeast!
Math and Language Arts
Reading: We are just about done with the book, Because of Mr. Terupt and the kids are loving every second of it. We just found out some more news about Mr. Terupt the last time we read and we are still left asking ourselves... Will Mr. Terupt be OK? While reading we have been looking for our Signposts in our reading which are spots where, as readers, we stop and think about why something is happening and how it changes what will happen next. These last few weeks we have also worked some on our Composition Notebooks, looking at 'What Authors Do' so we can develop our own craft while writing.
