4th Grade – Jones

October Newsletter

As our new fourth graders fall into the new school year we have many exciting things planned for the month of October.

 In reading we will continue to work on building our reading stamina during Daily Five.  The students will continue to pick right fit chapter and picture books and through reading to self, explore the characters, setting, and plot of their books.

In math we will continue working on memorizing our addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts.  Students will also be exploring commutative property, multiplying multi-digit numbers, and reading coordinate grids.

In social studies we will continue exploring how our government works.    In the month of October we will be discussing how our federal government is structured and discuss the powers granted to each branch of government.

In science students will be learning about the layers of the ocean and the organisms that live in each layer.

 October is the time to start thinking Halloween party!   I will send home more information about supplies/food as we get closer to the date.  Happy October
