What's going on in our class! :)

- For Math, we are focusing on strategies to solve word problems and strategies for subtraction. I know that this can be frustrating for students, but I would like students to think about different ways to solve these problems based on what they already know and what they are learning in class. Don't give up! 

-For our class novel, we will be reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. Each student we will be receiving a class copy and we will be focusing on this novel for a few weeks. Students must still have their AR reading book they should be reading at home and transporting back and forth. 

-For Language Arts, we are focusing on the Writing Process using our Spelling and Vocabulary words throughout the week. 

-For Science, based on our recent fieldtrip to the Painted Pony farm, we are building a Plant Life Cycle Interactive notebook and planted vegetables of our choice and will watch/observe them grow until they are ready to replanted outside.

-For Religion, we have been learning about how God Speaks to Us Through the Church and the Pope as our chief leader. We have been focusing on Peter and how he was our first pope. We have also been watching Pope Francis speak to Congress on the projector. 

-For Social Studies, we have been exploring through California Regions and will be going in detail with California Resources.
