In fourth grade, we will all be risk takers as we learn new ways to better our understanding for reading, math, science, and everything in between! This is the year where we learn to problem solve, and work as a team while learning and studying. This is also the year that children tend to take more ownership of their academic growth. In Virginia Studies, we will be learning about Virginia from the year 1607 to the present. In Science, topics include, but most definitely not limited to, natural resources, plants and animal adaptations, environment, electricity, energy and magnetism, force and motion and even about the moon and planets! In writing we have been working hard on taking a small moment and stretching it into a personal narrative, which will help as the year continues to take our small ideas and plan, elaborate, edit, and finalize all of our different kinds of writing. Fourth grade students will continue to be risk takers with their learning, as they master important academic and life skills this year.
