Due Date: 1/8/2018
Subject: 4th Grade

Welcome 2018! I am so excited that we are starting our second half of the school year.  It seems like we just started.  Time is flying by.  We have many skills to cover this nine weeks.  Our state testing begins in March.  I know I have amazing and talented kids.  We need to focus on learning and growing our minds over the next few months.  We don't have any time to waste. 

Over the next month we will cover both fiction and nonfiction stories in reading.  The first two weeks will concentrate on historical fiction, inferences, and determining what characters feel through their thoughts and actions.

In nonfiction, we will be reading to find inferences, text structure, what the information is about and giving details to support your answer.  We will also interpret information and integrate information from two texts on the same topic in order to write or speak abouthte subject knowledgably. 

In writiing we will cover opinion writing.  We all have an opinion and we are going to learn how to persuade people.  In persuasion essays, students will begin the topic stating their opinion, provice reasons they believe this, explain their thoughts, and restate their opinion in a way that is a little different from the introduction.

Our students will be required to type a written response in a little over an hour.  They should be able to type a whole page.  We will be going to the computer lab to practice this, but please, if you have a computer, allow your child to practice typing on Word or Notepad or something similar.

Please encourage your child to real all types of genres.  Ask open ended questions like Who? Where?  When? How?.
