4th grade ELA

*There will be no more extra help for 4th grade for the remainder of the year! 

4th grade will be having a test
Hurricanes on Wednesday May 10, 2017. Students should be using their Think Central accounts to reread the story, reviewing vocabulary words and also think on a broader sense and generate conclusions or inferences about what is going to occur and what is occurring in the story. There will be a writing portion that will require them to think about how scientific text can help them better understand a specific topic with the use of text features such as visuals and maps. Students should be using their notebook, notes and RNB to help prepare. 

Students are also continuing to take their weekly Reading Comprehension quizzes on Thursday. Reading at home and asking questions about what they have read will continue to help them. They have been showing great progress with their reading comprehension. Keep working hard!!


*Studnets should be using their Think Central Accounts to help recall information and continue working on their Reading Comprehension.

*Also, students should always have an independent reading book on them at all times!! 


*Please reference their Journey Readers Notebook, notebook and Think Central to help if there is any confusion. They provide helpful explanations.  

Each fourth grader must have a grade level novel/chapter book with them at all times. It is essential they they are constantly building their fluency and comprehension.
