4th Grade News!

     Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!  The students will begin their Religion studies talking about God's wonderful creation, our Earth.  They will talk about ways we can take care of the Earth and they will write prayers thanking God for this great gift, the Earth.
     In ELA this year the students will be doing narrative writing, informational writing and opinion writing.  Literature of different genres and connected to different areas of the curriculum will be read and enjoyed.
     The students will study the landforms, natural wonders and regions of New York State.  They will study the locations of the continents and learn to read maps through the use of map features and a map grid.
     Some of the topics that will be studied in Science are the states of matter, electricity, magnets and simple machines. The students will be completing Science labs connected to the topics being studied.  In addition, the students learn ways we can take care of our environment and use alternate forms of energy.
     The students complete fun, creative projects throughout the year.  The first project they will be doing are stuffed paper bag pumpkins.  There is always something fun and interesting happening in fourth grade!
     Again, welcome to fourth grade!
