Welcome back to all! Today was a very busy day back to school. I enjoyed listening to everyone share their stories about the break with the class. We had a few sleepy friends, but I know that we’ll be ready to rock and roll on Tuesday.
MATH: NBT.6 Whole number quotients and remainders (long division)… Students will be able to find whole number quotients and remainders with up to four digit dividends and one-digit divisors using strategies based on place value.
Please continue to have your child work on www.xtramath.org if they still struggle with their multiplication/division facts. They must know their facts through 12 by memory. We will also be using www.ixl.com which covers all of the 4th grade math state standards. This website is great for review and helps to give students the extra practice needed on the standards that they may struggle with. All students will have their username and password glued on the inside of their agenda Tuesday morning. For more information, please read the parent letter that I posted further down on this webpage.
READING: RL.9 Compare/Contrast the treatment of similar themes and topics. Integrate information from 2 texts on the same topic in order to write/speak about the subject knowledgeably. Students will read fiction and nonfiction paired text in order to answer questions using text evidence.
Don’t forget to fill out your Six Flags Reading Log. It is due on February 8th. I will be checking it every Friday to make sure that everyone is doing their reading homework (read 20-30 minutes each night).
Writing/Grammar: W2 Informative/Explanatory writing; ELACC4L1a. Student will be able to identify and use relative adverbs and relative pronouns.
- Relative Adverbs: when, where, why, how, whatever, wherever
- Relative Pronouns: that, which, whom, who, whoever, whomever, whichever
