Week of September 26-30

Religion- We have been practicing using the bible. Students are learning the different books and if they are in the New or Old Testaments.   We are also talking about the theme of the passages we read. This week we will illustrate our understanding of what we read.

Science- Thursday we will have our first assessment for the vertebrates chapter. We highlighted material they are responsible for in class. We will have activities this week to help us review and be ready to test. Questions, comments, or concerns please email me at [email protected]  or I invite you to call me at home, my number is in your child’s planner.

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 newspaper every evening. This will help them solve worksheets and pop quizzes. I have guaranteed the students a quiz over the parts we read and highlighted today.

Math- 4th Grade Math: We will continue to work on Chapter 2: Multiply by 1-digit numbers. Students will use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.   Many students need to study their multiplication facts, as this is crucial to learning to multiply more difficult problems. Practice with flash cards every day!!

Language Arts

We are struggling with identifying the subject of a sentence. We will continue to work on this until it is second nature to us.   The students need to answer the question who or what is the sentence about to find the subject. Please help them practice this skill. We are adding identifying adjectives to this weeks study.

Please notice I have kept the reading logs. This is because I want the children to reread and study the Social Studies we did today. They also don’t have a Math log because we are switching to Multiplication and Division and I don’t have that log ready. I will have new flashcard packets for all students next week so they can put away the addition and subtraction when we get them and practice multiplication and division. That will be next week.

Be blessed!
