Class Color

This year each grade is assigned a color. Fourth grade is
WHITE. This will not only be our color for Field Day, but we ask that students and their parents try to wear their grade's color to any SEAS event they attend!



 What Are We Learning?


Religion- In Chapter 8, we are focusing on the Ten Commandments.

Reading- We will begin using our Common Core Crosswalk book in preparation for the upcoming state tests in March. The students will be learning about different reading strategies and topics. Our next focus is on text structure.


ELA

Writing-We are beginning to focus on responding to literature. Students will practice reading passages and constructing well-written short responses that "ADD" all necessary information. (Answer-Detail-Detail). 

Social Studies- Our focus of Chapter 2 is the Early People. We have learned about the Iroquois group and how they used New York's natural resources. Next we will learn about the Algonquin group and see how they were different and similar to the Iroquois.
