We have a busy week ahead of us in the fourth grade. Here are some of our highlights of what we will be working on.
In language arts, the students are working in cooperative small groups with third and fifth grade to create pciture books about the process of making maple syrup. This week we are focusing on assembling the stories together so that we can share them with the younger students later on this week.
Also in language arts, the students are working on a literature unit for Peter Pan. During this unit, the students are defining vocabulary words found in the story, as well as, answering comprehension questions for the chapters.
In math, the students are continuing to look at different types of graphs and are practicing multiplying two digit numbers by two digit numbers.
In religion, the students will be discussing lent as we prepare for Holy Week.
There will be a spelling test on Friday, March 23.
