Fourth Grade Class Update

Our literature read this month is the title, In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson by Bette Bao Lord.  This is the story of Shirley Temple Wong and her cultural and social adjustment to America.  Important themes focus on family, culture, language and communication, and friendship. These themes are providing a strong background for organizational writing pieces in the Fourth Grade.  Students are learning how to use pre-writing notes and organizers to help structure a paragraph, include details and examples, and elaborate the sentence structures.

Ancient Egypt is our topic of study in social studies. Students are researching a variety of topics about ancient Egypt and creating a presentation to share about their findings. Students are also learning more about how to use layout, transition, sentence structures, and graphics of the PowerPoint program to help them with their presentation.
