Fourth grade has had a great start to the year. We had a field trip to the Escape Rooms to support our unit of inquiry about building effective communities. Also in support of the unit, we went to the Fire Station Gallery, where our focus was on different perspectives.
In math we have delved deep into place value, looking at the different ways we can write large numbers and compare large numbers. In writing, we are focussing on realistic fiction and so far we have looked at helping students create believable characters. In reading, we have been teaching students to make predictions and inferences based on what they have read.
