September 18th - 22nd
Dear Fourth Grade Families,
I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Just a reminder that headphones are needed in class now, so please bring a pair to keep in student backpacks if you have not done so already.
In math, we will continue with our second unit of the year, which focuses on place value for whole numbers and decimals, different ways to write numbers (expanded form, standard notation, and word form,) and rounding. This week in particular, we are focused on: writing numbers through one billion, comparing and ordering whole numbers, rounding whole numbers, using money to understand decimals, and decimal place value.
Please check the "math overview" tab under the "math/science homework" tab for additional information regarding this unit, including learning targets and vocabulary lists.
In science, we will continue our second unit, which focuses on the physical properties of matter. Students this week will learn what is and is NOT matter, some of the properties of matter (states, mass, & volume,) and learn how to find the mass and volume of different types of objects. Students will continue working on note taking, observing, classifying, collaboration, and problem solving. Please check the "science overview" tab under the "math/science homework" tab for additional information regarding this unit, including learning targets and vocabulary lists.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
