Reading update with Mrs. Luyt 11/6-11/9

Reading: This week we learned about fables. The students read the fable The Fox and the Grapes and answered questions using evidence based terms. On Thursday, we took a spelling test. If you child received a 1, please be sure to sign and return the test so I know you have seen it. Students will receive new spelling words on 11/13/17 (next assessment 11/30).  Next week, we will be continuing to read a fable, The Ant and the Grasshopper and use evidence based terms to answer questions. We will also be reassessing their reading levels for the next two weeks. In addition, students will be having a Latin/Greek test on 11/16/17.

Writing Update with Mrs. Duarte

Fourth graders did some review of parts of speech this week in Writing, in addition to completing several assessments related to language and the writing process.  This information will assist us in report card grading, as well as knowing what areas we need to re-focus on in the future.  Students enjoyed several activities to better familiarize themselves with prepositions and adjectives and to understand their importance in the writing process.  Next week will include a look at Thanksgiving and some prompts around the Thanksgiving theme in the areas of narrative, opinion, and informational.
