Thank you for visiting our website! We will be incorporating test preparation strategy lessons and practice over the coming weeks.

MATH- Grade 4 Module 6: Decimal Fractions

This 20-day module gives students their first opportunity to explore decimal numbers via their relationship to decimal fractions, expressing a given quantity in both fraction and decimal forms. Utilizing the understanding of fractions developed throughout Module 5, students apply the same reasoning to decimal numbers, building a solid foundation for Grade 5 work with decimal operations.

Math HW Help: Duane Habecker on YouTube is a great resource. Search for 4th Grade Module # and Lesson #. He will review/model homework problems.

ADVANCED ELA- Our third unit is focused around stories of perseverance. We will read texts featuring stories of characters who overcome adversity to achieve goals. The core novel will be "Bud, Not Buddy". Our Ad-ELA texts will include a book club model. Students will be choosing a book after a thorough preview, then reading and contributing to discussion with a small group reading the same book. At the end of the unit, the group will complete a creative culminating performance to the class.
In writing, we will focus on narrative response writing. We will also integrate PARCC practice as this assessment will be given in the spring. In word study, we will discover the meaning of various Greek and Latin roots.

SCIENCE/SOCIAL STUDIES- In science we will learn about Waves, Speed and Energy.
