Good Morning and Happy Thursday!
We have had another great and busy week in the classroom. Next week, we have lots of fun activities planned, so this week we really tried to finish some units to prepare for spring break!
In reading this week, we worked on finding inferences in nonfiction and fiction texts. We mainly used the StoryWorks passages, which is a bi-monthly magazine. We read about fires in factories in the early 1900’s and the about the galaxy. Next week, we will continue to work on finding inferences! This Friday, we will be taking our reading summative test.
In math this week, we have been working on measurement and capacity. We started capacity by talking about Gallon Land, which was taught in third grade. This is a creative/story-telling way of helping the students understand cups, pints, quarts, and gallons. We also learned about measurement this week. In fourth grade, students need to be able to measure to the nearest 1/4, 1/2, and 1/8th of an inch on the ruler. We began by labeling a big ruler with all of the important units. When we are using a ruler, we count by starting with the 1/8. Next week, and at the end of this week, we are going to start working with weight and mass.
In Social Studies this week, we finished up VS.9 which was all about the Reconstruction after the Civil War. The students were tested on this unit on Wednesday and they did a great job! This Thursday and Friday, and then next week, we will be moving into science and learning about force and motion.
Have a great weekend!
