A Big Bite

Long division was all the rage this week and we are making great progress! Low stress division is nothing like the method of division that parents learned when they were in school, but is a great way to learn how to divide.  The traditional method of division will be learned in 5th grade.  
We  have started a new unit in science on weather and a unit in social studies on Canada.  There is so much to learn and it is all exciting!  Ask your child to tell you what they have learned this past week and what they hope to learn in the upcoming weeks.
We are writing fiction stories in writer's workshop in addition to studying Robert Louis Stevenson in poetry workshop.  We are still reading Little Dog, Lost by Marion Dane Bauer but we are almost done.  It is such a fun and exciting book!
If the next few weeks go as quickly as this past week, we will be on winter vacation before you know it!
Have a great weekend,
Mrs. Williams
