Hello 4th Grade Families!

It’s been another great week at Bells Ferry. Right now we are focusing on our measurement and looking at the metric system for the first time! One important skill students should know is how to multiply and divide by 10s, 100s, and 1000s. We’ve been working on this all week and will continue into next week.

We’re also almost done with poetry! Students have worked hard to know the different types of figurative languages and the elements of poetry. We’re going to look at specific poetry styles next week and learn more about famous poets. In science we’re taking a break next week, but when we come back to it we’ll be looking at our solar system and the planets in it. We are starting the Revolutionary War in social studies and will be looking into the Declaration of Independence.

Don’t forget next week is our last week before Fall Break, so let’s make it a good one!

Good afternoon 4th Grade families!

It’s been another great week in 4th grade. The students have worked on learning about and reading poetry as well as literary devices. In math we wrapped up our unit on writing in expanded form, word form, and standard form. This next week we are going to focus on rounding numbers with up to six digits!

In writing we are working on narratives and the students finished their first writing final draft today. I am excited to read them all. We are continuing to work on narratives next week and will also continue with the same spelling words. The spelling test will be on Friday, August 31.

As a reminder: August 29th, is early dismissal and students will leave at 12:30.

Have a great weekend!
