It's going to be another busy week in Grade 4. For Literacy we are going to be reading "The Wretched Stone" by Chris Van Allsburg for our shared reading. We are going to do a QMI chart for this text too. This is an excellent text for making inferences! Our Paragraph of the Week is about a special talent or something you are good at. My Little Darlings are getting really good at writing strong topic sentences. We will now focus on closing sentences. :)
In Math we are learning those pesky times tables. We are going to read "Amanda Bean's Amazing Dream" by Liza Woodruff to see how much quicker it is to multiply than repeat add. We are going to write multiplication riddles. Later in the week we will use base ten blocks to multiply. See this post here.
In Science we will be continuing to learn about rocks and minerals. We are going to make Mineral Posters on the SMART Board. We will also do a rocks and minerals Jeopardy game.
In Dance they have created their own dance in groups of 4. It is so fun watching them develop these! We will be presenting on Thursday.
