It has come to my attention that Achieve hasn't been working (I can't even get in), so Achieve homework has been excused for this week. Hopefully it will get up and running by next week.
This week, your 4th graders have been working on their narrative story about being stuck in the desert. So far, we have created our hook sentence to begin our story, as well as drafted our introduction. They will continue next week by drafting their rising action, climax, and falling action.
If you have also noticed, the math homework looks a little different this week. From now on, homework will be focused on reviewing skills already taught so that classroom time will be spent focusing on new concepts. Achieve and Green Flash (the language side) will remain the same.
We have finished our Social Studies unit on California Regions and have begun our Science unit on waves. We will be doing an activity on sound waves next week.
We visited the library today and your 4th grader has checked out 2 books if they returned their two books from the last time we were there.
Students will find out their class jobs on Monday
