Social Studies – Students are finishing up their unit on Pennsylvania the Colony. Miss Eby’s class will take the test on Wednesday, March 13th, and Mrs. Gwyn’s class will take the test on Thursday, March 14th. To help study, students have a packet of information they can use. Some studying ideas that came from fellow 4th graders include making flashcards (the cause and effect page in the packet is able to be cut apart for this), having an adult or sibling use the packet to test the 4th grader, or creating their own test using the packet and having someone else take it.
Reading – Unit 4 on fiction came to a close this week. The students will hopefully be finishing up their TDA for this unit assessment today. Look for these tests to come home in your child’s Weekly Work Envelope (WWE) this week or next week. Next up – Unit 5: Evaluating Author’s Claim!
Writing – Has your child asked you which is better – handwritten letters or electronic letters? That is what they are writing about this week. Be sure to see those essays coming home in the next few weeks!
Math- We are finishing Chapter 11 on Monday. This chapter was all about measurement. We will review with a practice test on Tuesday and the test will be on Wednesday, March 13.
