All of a sudden its October! And chilly outside...that hasn't stopped us from having an awesome week of learning and fun in 4P!
A few updates:
We are moving quickly through the remainder of Module 1 in math....we will likely finish it up by the end of next week and have our summative assessment some time the week after. Everyone is doing a great job! This week, we practiced 4-6 digit addition and subtraction strategies including one and two-step word problems.
We will have our rough drafts of our realistic fiction stories finished next week, then move on to our final drafts. We will be celebrating the end of the unit with an all 4th grade share on Friday, October 18th.
In reading, we are continuing to study character change and building ideas about characters by noticing images, traits or objects the author repeats. Next week, we will practice writing about character change and theme using a shared text.
We are finishing up our mini unit on electric circuits in science and will take a brief assessment on what we've learned sometime next week. Then on to magnetism!
