    Welcome to our 4th Grade Class!  


    Here are some things coming up in September! 



    Math:  In math, we will be learning about place value.  We will work
    with estimation as well.  We will also review multidigit addition and
    subtraction, and learn the traditional methods for both operations.  
    Science: We will be studying the Wetlands this month.  We will learn
    what Wetlands are, why they are important, and how we can do our
    part to keep them protected. We will also learn about what types of
    animals, plants, and trees thrive in Wetlands.  

    Social Studies:  In Social Studies this month, we will be learning
    about communities.  We will learn about different types of
    communities and what makes up a community.  We will also discuss
    how local government works.  

    Reading: In reading, we will be starting off with our Reading Launch.
     We will learn how to pick just right books, how to write 4-star post its,
    how to have a book talk, and more.  We will learn how to write about
    reading, by reading closely and analyzing what we read.  

    Writing:  In writing, we will be starting off with our Writing Launch.
     We will collect small moments and turn those moments into entries.
     We will then write a personal narrative from one of our entries.
