Lord make me and instrument of your peace, where there is hatred, let me sow your love,
Week of August 24-28
Religion– We will talk and read about how paying it forward shows love.
Science-Wrapping up our quick facts about scientist and moving on to the cells in living things. See handout for standards
Social Studies-We will be studying Indiana’s Geography. This will also lead us to map and globe skills, specifically latitude and longitude. Friday we will have our first test over things we have covered. The students have and will continue to build their study aids in their green folders. See handout from back to school night for standards.
Math- 4th math: We are working on Chapter 1 Place Value. Our lessons focus on understanding place value through hundred millions as well as reading/writing those numbers. We are also using logical reasoning to solve problems.
Reading– Gilly Hopkins is the main character of the novel we will start this week. We will make predictions, identify characters actions, motives, emotions, traits and feelings, share their point of view, draw conclusions, make generalizations and respond to literal, inferential, and comprehension. As the week progresses ask you precious one what they think of Gilly. Would they like to be friends with her, and then ask them why or why not.
English-Basic review is how we will begin English or grammar. Capitalization, punctuation, statements, commands, questions, and exclamations will be our starting point.
Writing– We are about to publish our first research paper! We have been researching scientist who practice in the fields represented in our Science book and are going to share them on our scientist of the month board.
Vocabulary-This weeks words will help us get to know our Gilly character better. They are either words in the story or words that show us her actions, motives, emotions, traits and feelings.
