This Week in Fourth Grade...
Math: We continue to conquer fractions this week! We will continue exploring ways we can compare fractions and order fractions from least to greatest. Our last math test of the year will be next week! Students will practice and review fraction concepts this week and the beginning of next week.
Religion: This week we begin our Family Life unit. We begin with focusing on God's gift of family. We will discuss how God created us to live in communion with Him and with one another. We will explore what it means to be dependable and the importance of family rules. The virtues we will focus in on are justice and obedience.
Reading and Language Arts: Our weekly theme in RELA this week is: Exploring Under the Sea! We will read nonfiction articles related to explorations that have taken place under the sea. In Writer's Workshop we continue working on final drafts of our Compare and Contrast essays using the chrome books!
Science: In preparation for the weather presentation at Camden Yards before the baseball game, we will complete a STEM activity involving weather and baseball! Students will explore the importance that weather plays for baseball stadiums across the nation. In addition, our Genius Hour projects are coming along! Students will have two more Genius Hours to prepare for presentations starting next week! Be sure to check in with your child and ask how their project is coming along. Some students may need to spend some time at home working on it as well in order to be ready for next week.
- Our Orioles Camden Yards Field trip is this Wednesday, May 24th! Students should wear their Race for Education t-shirts, PE shorts, and PE shoes on the trip, along with any other outerwear that may be necessary. Students should bring a disposable snack and lunch. Due to allergies, the concession stands will be closed for the game. Students may pack their lunches and other belongings in the orange string backpacks they received on Friday. It will be a great day, we can't wait!
