Rocks & Minerals Study Guide



Types of Rocks and some pictures :)




This week in 4B...

We are so excited about our new friend in 4B, Maren!  Today was her first day and 4B was very welcoming.  We had so much fun on our field trip yesterday to Onondaga Cave! Check out our pictures below.

So far, we are off to a busy start this week with pre-testing for out next units.

Math: Please sign and return our last unit test on Multiples & Factors.  Next up: Multiplication, Division & Long Division.  Continue practicing multiplication facts nightly, this week we are testing X8!

Reading: Non Fiction Structures  
So far, we have talked about cause & effect and problem & solution.

Writing: Opinion Writing
Try brainstorming a few of their opinions at home. (ie. why they shouldn't have to clean their rooms)

Science: Tomorrow we have our Rocks & Minerals Test!

*We will be doing a fun Pumpkin Day next Thursday, October 29th.  Please send your child to school with a pie pumpkin.  (I think that is the official name but I will show your child tomorrow the appropriate size just in case.  If it is any larger or smaller they will not work for all of the activities.)  Thank you in advance for helping to make a fun fourth grade learning day!
