4th grade news

English

This week we had a spelling pretest and test. We finished our study of adverbs. We also finished reading The BFG. In The BFG, the giant uses a lot of made up words, so we spent a lot of time figuring out the meaning of these words. This week students created their own mini dictionary with words they made up, their definitions, and pictures.

Science

This week we began learning about the lifecycle of plants. We started learning about plant reproduction and pollination.

 

Math

We continued learning word problems with multiplication and multiplying with powers of 10. The whole week, students were practicing for the test. By the end of the week, students took test, and the result was excellent. Most of the students got A’s! Good job! And I hope students will perform the same in the next chapter, Division!
