Congratulations to Lea-Sophie LaChance Room 206 Student of the Week!
The Field Trip for today was postponed. I will keep you posted when it will be rescheduled. There is no Book Log due for tonight. Students should work on their book reports due October 31, 2014. Students have the option to complete an oral book report dressed as the main character for 100 EXTRA CREDIT POINTS!!!! Please sign student permission form (distributed last week)
Math: Students will solve number stories. They will use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems. Fourth graders will review strategies for solving word problems.
Social Studies: Fourth graders will work with current events so that we can be aware of the world around us and how those events can affect our lives. Students will read and understand grade-level-appropriate material from “Time For Kids” http://www.timeforkids.com/ . They draw upon a variety of comprehension strategies as needed (e.g., generating and responding to essential questions, making predictions, comparing information from several sources).
Social Studies EXTRA CREDIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Students will be allowed to choose up to two articles from the TFK website and answer the following questions:
Answer in S.S. Notebooks (Label Extra Credit)
- What information did you already know about the topic before reading the passage? How did you learn this information?
- Tell 3 facts you learned from reading the passage.
- Pretend you have to teach what you learned from reading this passage to a new student. What will you tell about the topic?
- Choose a color to describe the topic. Tell why you chose it.
Science- Students will continue studying the process of proposing and testing hypothesis (Scientific Method). Students will research possible Science Project ideas for the classroom science fair. Fourth graders will continue to discuss experiments that are of interest to them in preparation for our classroom science fair in December. Here are some websites you can visit with your 4th grader for science project ideas. Students will work on project summaries in class.
Literacy: Fourth Graders will identify structural features of Informational Text. They will identify structural patterns found in informational text (e.g., compare and contrast, cause and effect,) to strengthen comprehension
Writing: Topic: “Why are We Thankful”. Students will begin outlining multiple-paragraph compositions (DRAFT):
- Provide an introductory paragraph.
- Establish and support a central idea with a topic sentence at or near the beginning of the first paragraph.
