In Ms. Bruni’s room, we finished Topic 15 in math: Solving Measurement Problems. We are finishing Topic 16, which is on lines, angles and shapes. This topic focuses on line segments, rays, types of angles, adding and subtracting angle measurements and geometry.
We will continue to practice multiplication fact fluency until the end of the school year. Students should continue to practice multiplication facts at home for the rest of the school year and over summer vacation. Flashcard practice or multiplication games will be a great way to practice fact fluency.
For reading, we are reading stories that are tall tales. Our theme for reading is “What are some reasons people moved west?” A reading comprehension skill we are using is cause and effect to help us understand the sequence of story events. We are also visualizing what we read to help us understand, enjoy and remember the story.
Thank you, students, for all your hard work this year, and thank you, parents, for supporting your fourth-graders this year!
