Happy Spring from our 4th Grade Classroom.

 

Reading: 

We have been learning about the American Revolutionary War in class and the events that led up to the war.  As we continue in our unit we are going to be learning about the events that happened in the war and people who were influential factors in history.  Students have been able to pick a new topic to learn about what was happening after 1775 and events that led to our independence.

We had our debate before break and everyone did an amazing job.  Students were able to dress up like colonists and enjoy a cup of tea at the end.  Check out the pictures below to see some of our loyalists and patriots.

 

Writing:

We are currently in our informational writing unit.  We are learning to write informational texts with table of contents and subtopics.  Students are going to be teaching the class about their topic and all that they have learned.  Students are going to be connecting their topic into the road to revolution and discuss how their event impacted the start of the American Revolutionary War.

Math:

We are getting ready for SBAC which is taking place on May 14th and May 15th.  Students are going to be learning strategies for this test and learning prime and composite numbers.  We are going to be moving forward in our units and finish off our year strong when learning about fractions and decimals.

Up and Coming Events:

We are very excited to have two field trips coming up.  Permissions slips were sent home on April 10th and April 22nd.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Goodwin Forest Hike: April 26th

Old Sturbridge Village: May 2nd.

Training’s:

In February, Miss. Douglas, Mrs. Milton and I attended the Teacher’s College Reunion.  This is an event where teachers are able to attend seminars to help us learn new strategies to use in the classroom.  We were able to meet Lucy Calkins and take a picture with her while attending the conference.  We have been very excited to share what we have learned with the staff at Hampton and are excited to always be bringing new strategies into the classroom.
