Subject: 4th Grade

The first two days were absolutely amazing!  I am looking forward to a wonderful school year getting to know all my students. 

We will have our first vocabulary test on Friday.  I also sent home the first homework assignment.  It will be due Friday. Please make sure your child has a binder, paper, dividers, and page protectors.  Those are the main things we will be using.  Art supplies are to be kept in their backpacks so they may use them in both classrooms.

Week One Vocabulary Words

 

1.               bizarre-very strange or odd

2.               effective-something that works well or produces the result that is wanted.

3.               ineffective-something that does not work well or produce the result that is wanted.

4.               get-up-and-go: energy

5.               sag: droop or hang down

6.               creak: make a sharp squeaking sound

We are learning procedures for working in a collaborative classroom.  We will focus on characters, character traits, and other elements of fiction.

 

 



Nonfiction Research Project
Due Date: 1/5/2017
Subject: 4th Grade

We are beginning a unit of study of nonfiction writing. The students will research and make a book including pictures of a country of their choice. I have read several books and we have compiled many different countries to research. Students may research and work in pairs if they choose. We will be working on this in class for the next six weeks, but some research and printing of pictures may need to be completed at home. The completed project is due February 10, 2017.

The book must include headings on the top of each page. Write paragraphs about what they learned about that heading. Include a picture if one can be found. The students are required to choose ten (10) headings. More can be included if desired.

·         Where is it located?

·         Origin of the country (when it became a country)

·         Government

·         Housing

·         Transportation

·         Major industry

·         School

·         Sports/games

·         Holidays

·         Foods

·         Family life

·         Plants

·         Animals

Fun facts that must be included in one page are listed below.

·         Money
