What’s Happening in Fourth Grade


Reading-We are just about to begin Theme 3 in our reading textbook.  The stories in this theme relate to natural changes.  The first skill that we will focus on is cause & effect.  Later, they will be drawing conclusions about information presented in the stories.  They will use story details and their won background knowledge to figure out something the author has not stated directly.

Math- We have just begun Topic 6 in math.  The students will be multiplying large numbers by a one digit number.  The following two topics involve multiplying numbers by 2-digit numbers.

Social Studies- We had a wonderful trip to Springfield, and the students were able to see first hand many of the concepts we are learning about that relate to our state. Once we finish our Illinois Unit, we will travel to the Northeast region of the United States.  We will learn about the geography, history, and current conditions in that region.

Science-  In the next couple of weeks, we will be learning about earth's water.  The water cycle will be reviewed.  We will also map the ocean floor and learn about resources provided by the ocean.  We will conclude this unit learning about ocean waves.  Then, we will explore other wave properties related to light and sound.
