Curricular Information:

Math:  We continued to look at the numberlines we created and place value on those numberlines.  We took notes in our math journals on how to use a numberline to help us add.  It is one of our many strategies we can use to help us solve problems.  We also worked in small groups on reviewing math skills.  In addition, we looked at multiplication models, and began geometry during Number Corner as well.


Reading:  We continued talking about our “inner conversations” when we read.  These help us to better understand the text.


Social Studies:  We continued to learn about the compass rose and directions on maps.


Religion:  We came up with ideas of our “Prayers of the Faithful” to pray during our Chapel Mass on Thursday.  The children who had parts in our Mass also practiced their parts in front of us.  About once a month, we will have a Mass in our chapel with the fourth graders.  It is such a sweet time of worship for our classes.  Everyone who wants one will have a part during a Mass this school year.
