Keeping Up the Pace in April . . . 

We are in our in our last quarter of 4th grade, and we need to keep up the pace of hard work and creativity in order to prepare for 5th grade.  Please encourage your children to come to school ready to learn by having enough sleep and opening their minds for review and enrichment.


During Language Arts this week, the students will review Text Structures in Informational text. They will also describe the overall events, ideas, concepts and information in a full or partial text.  In addition, we will review literary elements and use details from stories to determine main ideas and overall themes.   The students will continue to practice finding meaning of unknown words by using context clues and Greek and Latin roots along with prefixes and suffixes.   We will continue to edit texts for grammar, punctuation, and spelling.  Our spelling words for the week can be studied at home during homework.

Math time will be spent reviewing the skills from 4th grade and building on them as needed to enrich the students for 5th grade skills.   The students will work at different paces as they show mastery in their review.  We will do this by completing worksheets, showing answers on white boards, and playing review games like Kahoot!. 


The students will culminate the Science chapter on Energy and Its Uses by taking an assessment Wednesday.  The students will bring home a study guide to review on Tuesday evening.   On Thursday, we will jump right into Chapter 7 in Science about Heat.  Please remember that your kiddos can access their Science anytime they want at home by logging onto Think Central.  I will have the current Interactive Lessons posted, but the book is available to read at any time via Think Central. 


Also, please note that during our FSA's, our lunch schedule is subject to change.  We may eat later than our usual time.  Please call the front office on those days if you plan to visit and eat lunch with your child.  


As always, please email or give me a call if you have any questions or concerns. 


Have a blessed week,

Mrs. Delia Collins
