Ms. Gentile's Fourth Grade (1)

Hi Parents,

Curriculum as of mid September is as follows:

Math-we are almost at the mid-point of Module 1 which includes place value, rounding and algorithms for addition and subtraction.  A mid-point assessment will be given shortly.

ELA-we continue to work on Grammar including such topics as  capitalization, types of sentences, and punctuation.

We are alternating Spelling and Vocabulary on a weekly basis. This week we are doing Vocabulary.

Writing-we continue to write in our journals.  The class also meets with Mrs. Cosentino for Writing Lab as well twice a week.

Reading-we are working on the main idea of passages.  In a week or two, we will begin the book, Because of Winn Dixie. 

Social Studies-we are  using the New York State Social Studies Research Toolkit, Does Where You Live Matter?  This covers topics including what are the physical features of New York State, early Native American groups that settled in New York State and so much more.  My intentions are to start a Science Unit by end of September. 

Religion-Continue to foster a relationship with God.  We are now covering topics including the Beatitudes and Gospels.
