Welcome to 4th Grade
My name is Mrs. Gates, and I would like to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. The 4th graders are excited and looking forward to a great year here at Chateaux School. The focus this year will be on the following:
The focus will be on: Reading more complex text with facts and background knowledge and building upon that knowledge. The strategy of questioning will be used to help students to refer back to the text for text evidence.
Please make sure your child is reading independently at least 30 minutes every day.
The focus will be on: Mandatory District Writing Samples and District Essays.
The focus will be on: Multiplication, division, fractions, and using the four operations to solve problems and also word problems. Students should also prepare for the Regional Math Bowl.
The focus will be on: Life Science - Earth Science - Physical Science - including the Mandatory District Science Fair Participation.
The focus will be on: Non-Fictional text related to history and current events.
I look forward to seeing you throughout the year.
