Fourth Grade Newsletter ~ May 2018
English Language Arts – The fourth grade students are exploring literature and learning how to evaluate text for improved reading comprehension and a growing vocabulary. The students are reviewing grammar and learning how to make their writing more interesting. They are also practicing proofreading skills to independently integrate the rules of writing into their written expression.
Math – The students will be starting a decimal unit and they will continue to focus on problem solving.
Social Studies – The students will be learning about the causes and effects of the American Revolution in New York.
Science – The students are learning about the Earth, including constructive and destructive forces, and rocks and minerals. This is usually an enjoyable unit since the students already have some background knowledge in these areas.
