February 2021 Newsletter - 4th Grade
We are continuing to explore Unit 3, Module A & B of ReadyGen. This module focuses on understanding that different types of texts can be used to analyze similar topics and ideas. We will be discussing natural phenomena such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and tsunamis.
We are continuing to learn about fractions. After learning how to add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers, we will move on to multiplying fractions by whole numbers. Please have your child practice their math facts online using Reflex or with flashcards at home on a daily basis.
In Unit 3 of ReadyGen writing, students will use mentor texts from reading to determine which text better describes the effects of earthquakes on living things and the Earth. They will be citing text evidence as research to support their opinions. Please make sure your child is practicing from their weekly word list for the spelling tests on Fridays.
Science/ Social Studies-
In science, we are working on body systems, forces, and weather (each class focuses on a different topic due to supplies). In Social Studies, some classrooms are finishing up the Southeast, while others are beginning to study the Southwest region.
