Grade 4 Notes

This week in Grade 4 October 10-13th

What's happening in Grade 4?
We have started our new unit on explorers; in particular we will be learning about explorers who came to North America as well as early contact, trade, cooperation, and conflict between First Peoples and European peoples.
Language Arts:
We are continuing with our reading unit on Charlottes Web. Students have also researched a spider and are now writing a descriptive and informative paragraph on their spider.
Continuing with our "Fruits of the Spirit" unit
We have started a new unit on numeration - students have been reviewing place value. They  received a homework sheet on place value on Tuesday which is due tomorrow. We will be having a mini unit review on Tuesday October 17th.
Please remember that PE days are a Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Students are allowed to come to school on a Tuesday in their gym strip as they have PE first thing. However, they have to change into their school uniforms afterwards. On the other days, they change into their gym strip at school.
Things to Remember:
  • Parent teacher interviews are next Wednesday and Thursday
  • Sign up sheets are outside the classroom
  • Early dismissal Wednesday Oct 18th @ 1:30pm
  • No school for students Thursday and Friday (October 19th & 20th)
We will be having a Multiplication Madness month for the month of November. Details to follow - but if you want to get a head start practicing those multiplication tables - that would be great!
