Hope you are all able to attend the Parent Teacher conferences this week!
Reading: Our reading group has recently begun to review a new type of syllable. We have begun to read and spell words with Vowel Team syllables! I'm sure you've heard the rhyme: "when 2 vowels go walking, the first one does the talking and the second one stays silent". We've studied the two vowel teams "ee" and "ay". You can see these two vowel teams in words like "freeway".
Math: We have recently taken a test over our unit of Place Value. I'm proud to say the students did a wonderful job!! To keep this concept fresh you can continue to practice using IXL! Many students would benefit from reviewing rounding especially. :) We are just getting started in a unit over Multiplication! We are so excited to welcome Mrs. Karen Barber to our fourth grade math team! Welcome Mrs. Barber! :)
Language Arts: We are just wrapping up our study of the book, Hank Zipzer. The students have done a great job! We are so excited to begin a study learning how to write a solid three point paragraph. We are also practicing our cursive writing and our grammar concepts daily.
Social Studies: We are just beginning our study of the European Explorers. The first explorer we learned about was Christopher Columbus himself! What an interesting character he proved to be
