Carroll's Classroom

All things 4th grade

English/Language Arts

Nonfiction: The next few weeks we will be focusing on supporting inferences about informational text.

Realistic Fiction:We will begin a class novel study on Shiloh. We will be diving into character, setting, and theme. Students will be doing a project in class as we read the book.

Wordly Wise

This month we will focus on Lessons 6 and 7.

Lesson 6 Test: November 8 - Study Link Lesson 6

Lesson 7 Test: November 22 - Study Link Lesson 7

Math Corner

We have begun multi-digit multiplication. This includes a 2x1 digit, 3x1 digit, and 2x2 digit. A video of "how to" will follow in the coming week. Parents: I know this is not how you learned, or were taught. Student will eventually be taught how to multiply using the standard algorithm. However, students need to learn how to find partial products when multiplying to be successful on the End of Grade tests. Furthermore, I can tell you that students have deeper understanding of the value numbers. This will give them valuable tools for mental math and to be successful in higher level math classes. Please be patient with the process - I know it takes time to use the array boxes.

Social Studies

The focus will be on Science for the next few weeks. However, we will be learning about The Lost of Colony of Roanoke and Virginia Dare.


Our class will go to Mrs. Ramsue for science for the next four weeks. They will be learning about moon phases and nutrition. We switch for science everyday from 1:45-2:20 - most of our science activities are hands on, and can not be made up. Please make sure your students are here to be successful.
