4-2/Ms. Jillian Ra

Welcome to Fourth Grade 
Reading, Writing, and Social Studies!

At the completion of our novel study on Because of Winn Dixie students created a lost dog poster using details from the text to better connect with the main character and her hardships.  

We will be doing a quick unit on President's Day so students can gain a better understanding of the presidents that helped shaped the country.  Students will be breaking into groups, reading passages about different presidents and creating Venn diagrams to compare and contrast the presidents that they read about.  


We are beginning a unit on informative/explanatory writing where students will be learning all about the aspects of non-fiction texts.  Students will be creating their own non-fiction books; they will write how To pieces as well as do extensive research on a topic in order to gain information and create their final product.    


In order to wrap up our American Revolution unit students are working with partners to create  "Road to Revolution" timelines.  Students are listing events chronologically, including a description explaining each event, and designing pictures to match each event. 

Did you know 4th grade students can receive free admission into national parks? Please follow this link for more information:  https://www.everykidinapark.gov/how-it-works/
