Additional very cool websites that match our anthology stories:

 

 

 *Leveled Readers -  Your child has a weekly leveled reader, based on their reading ability, that he/she is responsible for reading.  We will preview the story, discuss vocabulary, and skills.  After reading the story, we will review and discuss comprehension.  Each student is then required to complete any extension work and are encouraged to use the story text to find answers and also a dictionary.  Your child will have their leveled reader book and a journal that will come home for rereading.  Check out this site for some extra practice: www.eduplace.com       www.brainchild.com       www.skillstutor.com  http://www/eduplace.com/kids/hmr06/?grade=4    

http://www.teachers.cr.k12.de.us/%7Egalgano/elemkids.htm

 

 

 

 *Spelling:                  

  *Spelling units will come right from the Language Arts curriculum and will be completed in order. You will find the homework pages in the green spelling homework booklet.  All spelling word lists can be found in the practice book.  Each list will be pretested and a list of words will be generated specifically for your child.  Units are introduced and pretested on Day 1 of the anthology story and tests will be given  on Day 6 of the story cycle.

Please review these assigned words at home regularly.  

 

 

*Writing:

*Writing happens on an everyday basis in 4th grade.  It may be in a journal entry, a response to a question, a BrainBuster, or a formal piece of writing.  In order to make a great writing piece- use details!!  Tell who, what, when, where, why.  Proofread your work in order to make corrections.  Also encourage your child to use cursive in their every day writing and to always be neat about their work.

 

*4Square Writing- This is a format that your child may already be familiar with.  It helps your child organize and focus their writing.  In 4Square there are multiple steps taken that help to develop a child's ability to write a multi-paragraph essay that states the main idea, remains on topic, creates transitions between paragraphs, and uses descriptive language.

Additional very cool websites that match our anthology stories:

 

 

 *Leveled Readers -  Your child has a weekly leveled reader, based on their reading ability, that he/she is responsible for reading.  We will preview the story, discuss vocabulary, and skills.  After reading the story, we will review and discuss comprehension.  Each student is then required to complete any extension work and are encouraged to use the story text to find answers and also a dictionary.  Your child will have their leveled reader book and a journal that will come home for rereading.  Check out this site for some extra practice: www.eduplace.com       www.brainchild.com       www.skillstutor.com  http://www/eduplace.com/kids/hmr06/?grade=4    

http://www.teachers.cr.k12.de.us/%7Egalgano/elemkids.htm

 

 

 

 *Spelling:                  

  *Spelling units will come right from the Language Arts curriculum and will be completed in order. You will find the homework pages in the green spelling homework booklet.  All spelling word lists can be found in the practice book.  Each list will be pretested and a list of words will be generated specifically for your child.  Units are introduced and pretested on Day 1 of the anthology story and tests will be given  on Day 6 of the story cycle.

Please review these assigned words at home regularly.  

 

 

*Writing:

*Writing happens on an everyday basis in 4th grade.  It may be in a journal entry, a response to a question, a BrainBuster, or a formal piece of writing.  In order to make a great writing piece- use details!!  Tell who, what, when, where, why.  Proofread your work in order to make corrections.  Also encourage your child to use cursive in their every day writing and to always be neat about their work.

 

*4Square Writing- This is a format that your child may already be familiar with.  It helps your child organize and focus their writing.  In 4Square there are multiple steps taken that help to develop a child's ability to write a multi-paragraph essay that states the main idea, remains on topic, creates transitions between paragraphs, and uses descriptive language.
