Tentative Homework/Tests/Quizzes for the Week of September 10th-14th.

Dear Parents,

Welcome to fourth grade!  I am very excited to have your children in my class again this year.  The school year ahead will be filled with both challenges and rewards.  Take an active role in your child’s studies.  Bask in their victories and help them where they struggle.  I expect you to experience the sense of wonder and satisfaction that I feel every year on just how far the students have grown and developed. 

Starting tonight and each night forward, your child will be bringing home his/her homework book.  It is your child’s responsibility to copy down the homework, etc. to be completed for the next day.  Homework will be assigned nightly.  An exception to this policy will be made in unusual situations.  We will go over homework together each day.  Please review and sign your child’s homework book each night.  I look forward to seeing you all at Back to School Night!

Sincerely,

Mrs.  Cuccio

Week at a Glance:

Religion:  In Chapter 1, the students will continue to learn more about Jesus, who shows us the way God the Father wants us to live.  The students will begin to understand that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.  By following Jesus, we grow closer to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Social Studies/Science: 

We will be alternating every two-three weeks between S.S. and Science.  For the first two weeks we will focus on Social Studies Chapter 1 Lessons 1 and 2.  In these two lessons, we will focus on the geography of New York. 

In Lesson 1, the students will identify different types of landforms and describe examples of these landforms found in New York, understand how glaciers have affected the land of New York, and interpret maps to find elevations of different places. 

In Lesson 2, students will be able to describe some of New York’s natural wonders, including the Hudson River and the Adirondack Mountains; define some aspects of the character of Theodore Roosevelt, and give examples of how this character developed and made him a leader.  Throughout Unit 1 the students will identify main ideas and the details that support them.
