Fourth Grade Happenings
ELA - This month, we are learning all about electricity and energy. We are studying the different types of electricity and energy and working on hands-on projects that involve circuit building and wind turbine construction. We will discuss renewable energy sources and gather evidence to support which types of reusable energy they feel is the best.
Math - This month, we are focusing on both multiplication and division. We will learn different strategies to do 2-digit multiplication and then apply our learning to being long division. Remember to practice your multiplication/division times tables each night!
Reading - We are focusing on determining the theme, or the message, in nonfiction and fictional stories that we are reading.
Writing - Our November focus for writing is opinion-based writings. We are working on making a claim and backing up our thinking with text-based evidence. We will also begin adding transitional words and linking phrases to link together common ideas about the opinions we form.
