Week of November 18-22, 2019
Greetings, Fourth Grade Families!
It is going to be an awesome week! This is what it will look like:
Monday: (Science) CC 4.7, page 95
Tuesday: (History) CCU 9, page 99, #1-11 (ODDS)
Wednesday: (Science) CCU 4, page 101, sections A-C (EVERY OTHER ONE)
Monday: (Spelling) Practice Test List 9
(Math) Quiz 5
(History) Test 4: Part 2
Tuesday: (Spelling) Test List 9
(History) Quiz 10
Wednesday: (Penmanship) Test 9
Thursday: (Science) Quiz 10
(History) Test 4: Part 3
In Math, we are continuing to discuss two and three-digit long division, as well as fractions. Later in the week, we will begin discussing Metric Measures of Length.
For example: kilometer = 1,000 meters, decameter = 10 meters, etc.
In Language, we are continuing to review capitalization and punctuation. There are many components to these topics. Therefore, we will be discussing them for a little longer than most concepts.
We are beginning to dive into the “five senses” (sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste) and how to write creative sentences using those senses.
We are currently reviewing Chapter 4 of Science--and it’s all about birds! One of the assignments this week is page 101, Sections A-C EVERY OTHER ONE. However, for an extra credit opportunity and also for extra review, I am offering the kids to do ALL the questions instead of every other one.
I am offering a similar opportunity for Social Studies. We are reviewing Chapters 8 and 9, and one of their assignments is the Chapter 9 Checkup on page 99, #1-11 ODDS. Their extra credit points would come from getting not just the ODDS done, but also the EVENS. The two topics we have been discussing are The Great Awakening, and The French and Indian War. I will soon be providing flash cards for the students to use for all the names that they will have to memorize!
We are continuing to study our review vocabulary words, and will be testing on them this week! Make sure your kiddo gets extra practice at home.
apologize - to say you are sorry and ask pardon
architect - one who draws plans for new buildings
eternity - endless time
courageous - brave

I will still have my sign-up sheet posted this week until the day of the feast. If you would like to bring anything, take a peek at my sign-up sheet and see what spots are available!
NOTE: Snow is approaching us fast!! That means, as soon as the snow sticks to the ground, your kiddo needs ALL FIVE THINGS at school in order to play outside for recess: hat, coat, gloves, snow pants, boots.
Feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns! I really enjoyed talking with you all for parent-teacher conferences. It is so good to touch base! :)
