Language Arts: Parents I ask that you please take the time to read with your child each night.  After the child has read for 30 minutes ask them questions about what they have read.   This week we will focus on the following:

CCSS:RL 4.2 Determine a theme of a story, drama, or a poem from details in the text; summarize the text. RL 4.3 – Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., a character’s thoughts, words, or actions).

Math:  We are working on Unit 1  in math. In addition I ask that parents go over their child’s basic computation skills.  Math flash cards can be purchased from the Dollar Store.  Each card marking period students will be tested on all 4 computations skills.  For the next two week we will be focusing on addition.  Computation Test will be in two weeks.

Math:

Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.

  • Ability to draw a point, line, line segment, and a ray then use whiteboards or paper to draw and label each item.
  • Ability to model, draw, and compare parallel, intersecting, and perpendicular lines using straws and arms, or white boards.
  • Knowledge of point, line, line segment, and a ray.

Science:   Students will participate in hands on experiments to better their understanding.  I will send home readings that go along with what we are reading in class. Tomorrow is the science test

We will be focusing on Energy.

Standards: 4-PS3-2 Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electricity.

4-PS3-3 Ask questions and predict outcomes about the changes in energy.

 

Social Studies:  Students will demonstrate understanding of spatial terms.
