Week of August 22-26
There are no graded papers today as we were taking notes and creating friendly letters. That means there was a lot of editing and the grades will show up when we are finished. Count on some pop quizzes as we continue to take notes.
Religion– We will learn about the Fruits of the Holy Spirit to help us be the change in the world as our theme for the year challenges us to be. August’s fruit is love. Our activities will reflect recognizing and acknowledging people in our lives who demonstrate that love. This week we will add to this how prayer affects us and the people around us that we love. Ask your child about the prayers in the plate.
Science-We have started taking notes about vertebrates. The students need to study vocabulary and highlighted notes from the booklets every evening. This will help them solve worksheets and pop quizzes.
Social Studies– Social Studies: The students will be using the Indiana Studies Weekly for their main resource to learn about Indiana History. This week we will learn about Indiana Mammals and whether or not Indiana had dinosaurs. We will also learn about the Northwest region of our home state. The students need to study vocabulary and highlighted notes from the newspaer every evening. This will help them solve worksheets and pop quizzes.
Math- 4th math: Chapter 1 Use of Numbers. Numbers are used for many different purposes. We will discuss order and position as well as learn place value through the hundred thousands.
Reading– The students will build background, read aloud, and expand their vocabulary. They will make inferences, analyze text, and identify problem and solution. We will identify new characters, summarize what we have read, identify the most important event of the chapters, make predictions and locate and identify figurative language and various parts of speech. We will also begin our first novel, Frindle
English– The students will learn that a sentence is a group of words that expresses a complete thought, and that a sentence fragment is a group of words that does not express a complete thought.
