4th grade

4th grade

English

This week we continued our study of adverbs and practiced telling the difference between an adverb and an adjective. We read a science fiction story about a martian. We are also continuing our read aloud of the BFG.

Science

This week students worked with a partner to investigate a question. Each team made a poster about their question and gave a short presentation of their work to the rest of the class.

Math

We have started a new chapter. Students were memorizing multiplication tables and they had an oral test. All the kids scored very good grades in the test. Then we were learning multiplying larger numbers with 1-digit and also multiplying 2-digit with 2-digit numbers. By the end of the week, we were focusing on word problems based on multiplication.
