4-2/Ms. Jillian Ra

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

For our next book we will be doing a novel study on No Talking by Andrew Clements.  Throughout the reading of this novel we will be exploring two opposing points of view and how their decisions can effect the outcome of the book.  We will work in book clubs to discuss, analyze, infer, and connect to different events that are happening in the text.  


Throughout the month of April we will be studying different types of poetry to celebrate poetry month.  By the end of the month we will have studied, analyzed, and created variations of poems to share with others.  


We are learning all about the Civil War and New York's role in the war.  We are discussing Abraham Lincoln's decisions during this time and how it effected the events that were occurring.  We will complete a Civil War web quest so that we can explore people's first hand account of life at that time.
