Language Arts
We have been reading a great deal
about the immigration experience with
different small groups this past week.
Informative essays will be completed. This
week we will combine our Midwest projects
with our ELA blocks as needed to complete
text for our on-line books using Little Bird
Tales. Our Daily 3 and Guided Reading
groups will be filtered in as well.





Writing

The children have learned a great
deal about the immigrant experience from
using a variety of primary and secondary
sources. They will complete their drafts
and final copies this week in class and at
home. We will also return to our favorite
activity narrative.

Math

Math classwork and homework
include packets from a variety of concept
strands. We will also complete Unit 11 with
positive/negative numbers and capacity.
FAMILY LETTERS can be found on-line
this year! As in past years, they contain unit
vocabulary, activities, and selected homework
answers. You can find these newsletters at:
hLLp://everydaymaLh.uchlcago.edu/parenLs/4Lh-
grade/famlly-leLLers/ If you cannot access them,
please let me know.

Social Studies
The class will complete their text
write-ups for the Midwest sub-regions.


Science - from the desk of Mrs. Liporto
We will continue our work with advanced
circuits this week in science. We have
already learned about a series circuit and
how it has only one pathway for the energy
to flow through. This week we will learn
about parallel circuits, which have multiple
pathways for the energy to flow through to
get to and from the battery.




Happy Birthday!
