Third and Fourth Grade are both full of exciting topics! This year, we will continue using Math in Focus. We will cover concepts such as place value, mulitplication, division, fractions, money, and weight and capacity. Third grade will be working hard to memorize multiplication facts and fourth grade will be focusing on division facts.
In language arts, we will continue to use Journeys. You will be able to read wonderful stories from multiple genres, improve your vocabulary, practice your grammar skills, and develop your writing abilities. You will also be able to access this curriculum on Think Central.
In science, we will use Macmillan/McGraw-Hill. We will cover topics such as animal and plant adaptations, ecosystems, the earth, rocks, volcanoes, and magnetism. In class we will participate in STEAM activities and in the spring you will be able to showcase your talents in the Science Fair.
In social studies, we will use TCI. We will cover topics such as land and water, California Indians, California Missions, rules and laws, and our region's economy and government. We will complete several projects throughout the year to share with the class.
There is so much happening this year! I'm looking forward to helping you all become the best you can be!
