Our fourth graders are rapidly becoming “nose in the book” readers. So far our readers have been using their reading past to become great readers in the future. We have talked about reading in the best of times and the worst of times. We have thought about what kinds of things are important to have quality reading time. And most of our readers have made resolutions about what they would like to achieve as a reader. It is amazing to see our readers become excited about reading.
We always look forward to the first math unit in 4th grade! Our math program encourages hands on activities and our first unit, geometry, is a perfect introduction to fourth grade math. If you walk by any 4th grade class, you’ll hear words like parallelogram, polygon, or quadrangle. Ask your 4th grader the difference between a square and a rhombus!
