We are in the last week of April, quickly approaching our final month of 4th grade. Invitations for the 4th Grade Awards for our classroom went home in the black folders yesterday. We are having a Red Carpet Event! The kiddos are really excited about it!
During Language Arts this week, our class will be reading some historical fiction. We will use our skills and context clues to find the theme(s) found in each story. We will also work on spelling homophones correctly according to the use of the word in a sentence. The students have worked hard on their speeches, and they will present those on Tuesday, April 26th. After that, the first place winner will compete with all of the other 4th grade winners on Thursday, April 28th. Our Cold Read will be on Friday as usual.
The students will take a Check Point this week in Math. They will keep learning concepts and skills that will help them prepare for fifth grade. The students will bring home their classwork each night to keep at home. Their homework these next coming weeks will be mainly Math Facts.
We are now reviewing for Social Studies and Science. We will take the End of Year Assessments next week in computer labs. Last week, the students got to present a chunk of the science information to the class after they created a poster with facts. This week, they are working in groups to find answers to review questions. We will check those as a class to ensure they all have the proper notes to review at home.
Please remember that our awards ceremony for our class is on Wednesday, May 18th, from 9:15-10:15am. Please RSVP with the number of guests attending so I can assure we have enough seating for everyone! Bring your cameras, because your children will be speaking and we will also have a "photo booth" with props.
Have a wonderful week!
