Happy Long Weekend!

American Revolution

Fourth Grade has continued working on their papers and projects for their upcoming presentation. Every student has finished their research paper, American Revolution paper, and “Diary of a Soldier” paper, and now they are working on writing a children’s book on their topics. Each book has a theme such as colors, letters, or numbers, and students have also been drawing their own flags for the newly independent colonies as well.


In math, they have continued to learn about addition and subtraction. The problems that they are solving now go up to seven figures for both adding and subtracting. We have also discussed fractions and decimals and are beginning to work on more complex word problems.


On Thursday, each student received a new novel for Reading Workshop. Some of the books that they may currently be reading include Letters from Rifka by Karen Hesse, Refugee by Alan Gratz, and In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson by Bette Bao Lord. Next week, the students will get into groups based on the book they are reading and discuss them.

Important dates:

  • January 17: MLK Day- No School
  • January 25: American Revolution Presentation
