Mrs. McCall's 4th Grade Class

Welcome to my class website! Here you will find homework, news and information about our classroom, as well as resources for students. 
 
What are we learning in September?
 
 Reading- We are building our reading life in Mrs. McCall's class. We are learning strategies to help us become better readers and building our stamina! Our first unit focuses on learning about characters in the realistic fiction genre. We are using the class text, Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillio to teach us about literary elements and character analysis. We are jotting our ideas about what we read in our reader's notebook. 
 
Writing-  The budding authors of 112 are hard at work building their writer's notebooks. This resource will house all our wonderful seed ideas that will grow into great stories! In our first unit, we will write realistic fiction stories. We are learning about the writing process of brainstorming, drafting, revising, and editing. We have learned the writing motto of how we are really never done with writing, but we have just begun!
 
Math- We have started Chapter 1, which focuses on place value, estimation, addition, subtraction, and problem solving. We are also learning math routines and games to help us learn. We are building our skills with First in Math, our online computer program. 
 
Social Studies- This month we are learning all about Geography. We are learning map skills, continents/oceans, physical features, and geographic features of the United States.
