Students also read a Greek myth this week about Hercules and we discussed the theme and traits of a myth. At the end of the week, they wrote a response to text using their ACE strategy to organize their thoughts. We also talked about proverbs and their meanings.
In math, we continued to practice the partial quotients division algorithm and how to interpret remainders in a division number story. I also taught them how to measure and draw angles using a half-circle protractor. Thanks to Mrs. Golden and Mrs. Ryan for helping with math games! There will be a Unit 6 test this upcoming Friday. A study guide will go home on Wednesday.
In science, we started an investigation of magnets and their invisible powers. Students experimented with multiple magnets to learn about the different ways they interact with each other and with different materials. There will be a test on magnets and their properties this Thursday.
Our classroom library is looking a little skimpy these days. Students are welcome to check out books and bring them home, but it seems that some books are not getting back to school. Could you please help your 4th grader look around the house for any books that might belong in 4M? Thank you!
Ask a Fourth Grader!

* What materials are attracted to a magnet?
