Brenda Grage - Fourth Grade  (Send e-mail)

Greetings from fourth grade!

Dear Families,

Please check our class page regularly to find nightly homework assignments and important dates.

Your partners in education,
Mrs. Grage & Ms. Draeger

Math: This week, we will working in Module 5: Fractions. We will complete lessons 4-8. It is the expectation that your child will have Zearn lessons 1-8 completed upon our return on January 8th.

Please continue to encourage your child to practice their math facts at home to increase success in this module.

Students should log in to Zearn at home to practice the skills they have learned in the classroom! Students are encouraged to Zearn each night.

ELA: Encourage your child to read at least 20 minutes each day. Our goal is to read 40 books in 4th grade.

This week, we will continue Quarter 2 unit, "Survival" and explore our overarching essential question, "What role do perspectives play in decision making?"

2nd Quarter Skills include referring to details in the text to explain or infer meaning, finding the main idea and important details, integrating information from two or more texts on the same topic, summarizing, analyzing poetry, prose, and drama, determining meaning through context clues, and understanding text structures and text features.

This week in ELA, we will be reading nonfiction passages. We will practice summarizing, understanding context clues, and making inferences. We will also continue to identify text structures.

Writing- This week, we will continue our literary essay unit. We are pulling evidence to support our ideas. Student helped create a mentor text and are now writing their own literary essay with a different thesis. They will use evidence from Fox to defend their idea.

Social Studies: Our Southeast scrapbook is due on Thursday, December 20th.

Science- Students will be learning about volcanoes with our Mystery Science lesson "Can a Volcano Pop Up in your Backyard?"

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 2018-2019 school year. Our presentations will occur in November and January.

Invitation Reminder: We never want to have a child feel left out or have their feelings hurt by not receiving an invitation to a party. Even as adults, we know the emotional hurt from being excluded. This is why we highly discourage the passing out of invitations at school. The only exception is if you are inviting the whole class and the invitations are distributed by your child’s teacher. Invitations are never to be distributed by a student or parent. Thank you for your cooperation.

If you have any questions, please contact your building administrator.

***From the library...
Parents,
I am looking for volunteers in the Library to assist with re-shelving/organizing books. Additionally, during 'Check In' times, volunteers may be asked to help some students in find where their books should be placed on the shelves.

Any amount of time would be greatly appreciated!

If interested, parents/guardians can contact me at ncanny@fsd157c.org.

Thank you!
Nicole Canny, Librarian
