Our Weekly Learning Focus: Language Arts: Our unit of study is Cause and Effect. We will use expository text (fiction) as our anchor. Reading as a Writer: Students will continue Opinion Writing. They will be asked to pick a topic or choose a side and be able to support their ideas with evidence from text. Math: Chapter 9 - Relate Fractions and Decimals test on Friday Science: We are studying Earth's place in space. Our objectives include day and night relationship, seasons, constellations, moon phases, and scientific technology.
In an effort to be better stewards of our resources parents will no longer be receiving AR TOPS reports. To view your child's progress towards their goals you can visit the website listed below. It is easy to get signed and ready to use this great service. You will receive emails to your personal address when your child has tested. It is a valuable tool to use in keeping in touch with your child's progress. http://www.tvcs-ar.org/RenaissanceServer/HomeConnect/Login.aspx Parents, please make sure that your child is taking advantage of the ThinkCentral website. This is a valuable tool to use for practice in both reading, math, and science. Your child has been given a username and password for this website. The information is located in their binders. www.thinkcentral.com. Also, the McGraw-Hill website for Social Studies and Reading. www.connected.mcgraw-hill.com Students will be getting acquainted with Spelling activities that will help them be successful on Thursday tests. We have created a link to Spelling City which provides games and printables for each week's spelling words. Please go to www.spellingcity.com and find our state, school, and then Mrs. Yancey's name (she has it set up for all of fourth grade). Students will need to choose the list of words we are working on that week. Happy playing. Please make sure to check binders nightly for important information, weekly assignments, and tests. Please make sure that your child is reading every night. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me, jot a note in the planner, or email me at any Educationally Yours, Mrs.Gallina
