4-2/Ms. Jillian Ra

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

For our next book study we will be reading The One and Only Ivan by Christina Applegate.  Throughout the reading of this novel we will be learning new academic vocabulary, studying in depth the characters and their developing friendships as well as digging deeper into the experiences and struggles of our main character Ivan.  This novel will help us see the point of view of different animals and their experiences living in both the wild and in an enclosed area.  


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.    


We are beginning a new chapter focusing on the development of our government and how our great nation was shaped.  The chapter is titled A New Government.  
Test, Tuesday March 7, Chapter 6: Lesson 1 and 2
