Last Week of September

We are at the end of the month and almost to the end of the first quarter in 4th grade!   Time is flying, and yes, we were having fun learning in room 104!

This week's ELA will focus on the text structure of Cause and Effect.   The students are not only expected to identify the cause and/or effect in a paragraph, etc., but also explain why the author chose to use cause and effect for that particular thought or topic.   The students will test on this concept on our Cold Read Comprehension assessment this Friday.  In addition, the students are also finding meanings of unknown words by studying Greek and Latin roots and using context clues.   Our writing was based on comparing two inventions that the students read about in a short article. We also will be reading "A Land of Opportunities" and fill out a cause and effect graphic organizer to help us organize our writing.

During Math, we will finish up Chapter 3 of 2-digit by 2-digit multiplication.   They are responsible for knowing all the methods (partial products, distributive property, area model, and regrouping).  The students will bring home a review on Thursday, and the test will be Friday.   After that, we will move on to Chapter 4 which covers multiples and factors.  Please help your child find time to continue practicing their basic math facts (multiples of 1-12).  This will benefit them tremendously when trying to understand factors and multiples.  

Please keep in mind the following dates:

  • September 30: Math Test
  • September 28: Class Pictures and Retakes
  • September 30: Founder's Day Festival
  • September 30: Cold Read Comprehension Test
  • October 3-7: Book Fair (Volunteers needed.  See note sent home)
  • October 7: End of first nine weeks
  • October 13: AR Dress Down Day (for students who reached their goals)
  • October 14: Report Cards

I look forward to seeing you all this Friday at the festival!
