What are we learning this week?

English Language Arts (ELA): We will read a high interest story, “Firestorm” and take our Unit 4 Assessment this week. These kids surprise me daily with how they continue to grow as writers this year. When I stop to think about the fact that these 4th graders are producing such top quality Two Column Notes and five-paragraph essays, it’s simply AMAZING!

Math: We will continue our unit on Customary Units of Measurement this week. We will spend time converting units of measurement, work on problem solving and explore elapsed time. If you happen to be doing something with measurement and/or time, please consider including your child in on the math! This is a huge help for learning real world connections. Also, we are making a “Units of Measurement” Museum. If you happen to have some empty containers, we would love to have them. This is a “Clip Up” for your child!

Science: We will be studying energy this week!
