Fabulous Fourth Grade Newsletter – March 22, 2024 Edition

Dear Families, March 22, 2024

We are moving from fractions into decimals this week in math. The students are making connections from one to another, as you have seen in their homework this week. They are seeing the patterns! They also did some problem solving in pairs then evaluating each other’s work to see how they can explain their thinking more clearly. Parent helpers are invaluable for these kinds of lessons!

We also had fun on Pi Day with our scientists and mathematicians!

Helping during Math times are here! There are many available time and dates, including on Tuesday next week!

Religion – Fourth Grade Theologians solidified the Ten Commandments and worked on an artistic version of them!
Language – Fourth grade readers are reading Shiloh, a book about a family living in West Virginia. We are finishing up with writing summaries and moving to five paragraph essays. This week we finished planning it to work next week with writing it. For spelling, we focused on homophones.
Math – Mathematicians finished the chapter about multiplying fractions and took a test on them. They are beginning a unit on decimals.
Social Studies – We are diving into Native American in Washington asking the essential question: “How did God’s Creation affect Native peoples of Washington?”
