This past week was a busy one! Students have been working on completing their summative assessments for our Unit of Inquiry on patterns of the Earth. Parents also came to visit 4D to learn about what they are doing in science, math, reading, and writing during their share out on Friday. 4A, 4B, and 4C will be doing their share out with their parents this Wednesday, November 20th and Thursday, November 21st. Students also took their math assessment on metric measurement and area and perimeter. Our next math unit will focus on geometry. Students can use the Quizlet link mentioned below to preview the math vocabulary that will be taught in this unit.
Students are still working on their reading and writing units which deal with reading nonfiction for research purposes and writing research essays. They will be applying their skills to begin drafting essays focusing on one of the Sustainable Development Goals.
This week we will launch our next Unit of Inquiry, which will focus on the topic of economies and how “resources influence systems of exchange”. In preparation, students should preview the vocabulary for the unit by using the Quizlet link that was sent out today. Students should also try to think back to what they learned about goods and services in second grade (if they were here at SIS at that time).
