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 April?
 
 
 Math- Students are continuing to practice division skills. We are also learning how to measure angles with a protractor. Later this month, we will learn about multiplying fractions, and as always, build our problem solving skills. 
 
Reading- April is National Poetry Month. We are reading lots of poetry. We are learning about poetry structures, types of poems, and poetic language by studying mentor poems, and our classroom library collection of poems. We are also reading a novel written in poetry form entitled- Love that Dog by Sharon Creech.
 
Writing- Students are hard at work on publishing our informational books. Then we are beginning a unit on writing poetry. Students will learn how to write haikus, limericks, free verse, concrete, acrostic, to name a few... The unit will end with students publishing a book of poetry that will also include an "inspired by" poem. 
 
Social Studies- In chapter 9, we are learning all about Colonial Williamsburg and colonial life. Students will learn about what it was like to go to school in colonial times, as well as, colonial government, socializing in colonial times, going to church, and slavery.
