I am excited to work with your child and help them grow as a learner. This year we will explore many topics in math, reading, writing, social studies and science. We also will learn how to work as a community and develop positive relationships with peers and teachers. Students will practice communicating their thoughts and feelings, as well as their dislikes and likes in a safe environment.
Everyday we will have Math, Writer's Workshop, Reader's Workshop.
A few of the major math topics covered in fourth grade math, will be:
-multiplying and dividing larger numbers
-recognizing angles, quadrangles, and other polygons
-reading decimals, writing decimals, and understanding the meaning behind decimals
-comparing fractions with like and unlike denominators as well making equivalent fractions
On our class website you will be able to find many math games where students can practice the skills they are learning.
In writing, students will complete two research projects, a poetry unit, write a personal essay, realistic fiction story, and a literary essay.
During Reader's Workshop, students will practice different skills and strategies that will deepen reading comprehension and fluency.
