Hello Fabulous Fourth Grade Families!

Please take a moment to review what we will be covering over this week. It is important that students bring in a charged chromebook to school each day. We will be going outside every day we can, it is important that your child is dressed appropriately.

As a reminder, our P.E. period has been moved from Thursday to Tuesday. We will have P.E. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for the remainder of the school year.

Below you will find what we will be doing for each subject this week:

ELA: This week in ELA we will be starting our final class read-aloud, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. We will be focusing on the author’s purpose and strengthening our reading comprehension and vocabulary. We will be having spelling words from our novel, with a test on 5-9. Please be sure to study words each night to be prepared. In writing we will be continuing writing our personal narratives. We will be working on writing a draft this week, and our final draft will be due on June 5th. In grammar we will start Unit 5, Pronouns.

Students are encouraged to practice their fact fluency each night. It is vital that students are familiar and comfortable with their multiplication facts.
