Summary of Class
4th grade ELA/READING/SS is all about students growing in their skills as critical readers and using those skills to dive into complex text. While students are reading, an emphasis on academic vocabulary and personal vocabulary will be placed on texts. Different types of text will be use for instruction, which will include fiction, nonfiction, and mixed media. Students will continue to engage in writing for a variety of purposes and formats. These writings will take place as explanations for answer choices, journal entries, essays, and other various writing assignments. While writing instruction occurs, grammar and mechanics will be taught within the context of student writing.
- Students will need to take at least 2 AR Tests every month.
- Spelling tests normally occur every Friday. If a change in schedule occurs and REMIND message will be sent.
- Building Blocks for Reading and ELA will be weekly while Social Studies will be bi-weekly.
