MATH- Module 3: Multi-Digit Multiplication and Division: In this module, we will start with applying multiplication and division to contexts such as area and perimeter to set the stage for multiplication and division of multi-digit whole numbers. We will practice various ways to model
these problems, moving from concrete to abstract.

Math HW Help: Duane Habecker on YouTube is a great resource. Search for 4th Grade Module # and Lesson #. He will review/model homework problems.

ADVANCED ELA- Our first unit is focused around stories of New Beginnings. We will read texts featuring immigrants from all over the world as we consider the impact new beginnings have on our society and our perspectives. The core novel will be "The Orphan of Ellis Island" alongside the informational text "If Your Name was Changed at Ellis Island." Our Ad-ELA text is "Esperanza Rising."
In writing, we will focus on informational writing while researching natural disasters. In word study, we will discover the meaning of various Greek and Latin roots.

SCIENCE/SOCIAL STUDIES- We will continue with science this week and study Earth's Land.

Governor Pat Quinn signed Erin's Law in January of 2013, which requires all schools in the state of Illinois to provide age appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education programs for their students in grades Pre-K through 12.
