WHAT'S HAPPENING IN FOURTH GRADE...
Fourth graders have just completed three units of study!
In math, students recently finished a multiplication unit learning how to solve multiplication word problems and equations. Next, students will be learning strategies for solving division problems and equations. Please continue to study multiplication and division facts with your child every night.
Also, fourth graders completed our second reading unit which covered Earth’s resources, alternative energy sources, and ways to protect endangered animals. Moving forward, students will be introduced to the Atlantic States and will be learning about the history, geography, economy, and culture of these states. Discuss with your child what they know about the states that border the Atlantic Ocean.
Lastly, students completed a science unit on Motion and Design.Students learned all about forces and its effects on moving objects and took a deeper look into the concept of friction. We are very proud of our students!
