Dear Grade 4 Families,
Welcome back!!! It was great to see so many smiling faces, a little sleepy, but smiling nevertheless.
This week students were introduced to new vocabulary for the story, So You Want to Be a President? Additionally, while reading the expository text students had to determine when the some of the information presented was an opinion and when it was a fact. We continued working on the skill of finding the main idea of a story and/or paragraph and identifying the supporting details.
Next week we will be starting a unit on persuasive writing. I cannot wait to see how the persuasive the fourth graders are.
I wish you all a much warmer weekend and hopefully you will be able to enjoy the weather. I have attached the spelling list for this week.
