Brenda Grage - Fourth Grade  (Send e-mail)

Greetings from fourth grade!

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

Your partner in education,
Mrs. Grage

Math: This week, we will continue working in Module 3. Students will be taking their End of Module 3 test the week of December 4th.

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

ELA: We are working our second quarter unit, Animals. We are using our novel, The One and Only Ivan, to study various literary skills. This week, we will be studying poetry, prose & drama. We will also discuss similes and metaphors.

Writing: We will continue our second quarter writing unit, Literary Essays. We will be close reading the book Fox and analyzing the characters within the text.

Social Studies: This week, we will continue studying the Southeast Region of the United States. Students will learn about this region's culture and will also memorize the states, capitals, locations and abbreviations in this region.The Southeast region test will be on December 1st. Students should use their Study Guide packet and flashcards to study. Just like on the first test, students will be required to identify the location of the state on a map using a word bank, write the state abbreviation (no abbreviation answer bank is provided), and identify the name of the capital city for each southeast state from a word bank.

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.
