Greetings from fourth grade!

Welcome to our class page.
Please check back frequently for curriculum and schedule updates.

Your partner in education,

Math: This week, we will continue working in Module 5. Students will be adding, subtracting, and comparing fractions. They will also be plotting fractions on number lines and making models.

Students should be logging in to Zearn at home to practice the skills they are learning in the classroom!

ELA: We are starting our third quarter unit, Perseverance. We will continue reading our third class novel, Bud, Not Buddy. This week, we will be learning about the Great Depression and life in the 1930s.

Writing: We will complete a research simulation this week. Students will write about life in the 1930s. Students will practice PARCC-like prompts in writing.

Social Studies: We are working on our Midwest scrapbooks this week. They are due Monday, February 26th.

Science- Students will be learning about energy and motion.


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. In response to this legislation, Frankfort School District 157-C will be presenting, "Child Lures Prevention: Think First and Stay Safe", curriculum for the 2017-2018 school year. Our presentations will occur in November and January.
