Once Upon A Time…there was a 4th grade class reading Fairy Tales! That would be us! We began our Fairy Tale unit on Monday and will continue it throughout next week. Our goals are to compare/contrast the characters, make inferences and predictions, and possible write our own silly fairy tales.
We are continuing to read Because of Winn Dixie, also. We will also be analyzing characters and practice visualizing what is happening in each chapter.
We have library this Friday so encourage your children to finish those books and be ready to turn them in!
Listed below are a list of the current vocabulary words we are working on:
- immediately – right away
- missionary – someone who preaches in a foreign country
- distracted – too busy to pay attention
- fortunate – lucky, well off
- constellations – patterns made by the stars
- congregation – people who are part of a church
The next list we will begin to work on later in the week is listed below:
- positive – certain
- grand – wonderful
- expensive – costly
- irritating – annoying
- trustworthy – honest
- identical – alike
We will be matching the words with the definitions, illustrating the words, and playing charades with the words.
Just a quick reminder about out field trip tomorrow, Sept. 12. If your child has not brought their $5.00 or permission form please have them bring it tomorrow!!!
Also, many students are not returning their Reading logs completed on Fridays. If logs are not turned in on Fridays, students will have to sit during recess and fun Friday to read. This Reading Log is a weekly homework assignment that is helping them to be better/stronger readers. Please encourage them to be responsible and read each night for 20 minutes.
Reading logs go home today and are due back on Friday!
