In fourth grade mathematics we learn to find the factors and multiples of numbers. We are then using those skills to add and subtract fractions, simply fractions and recognize equivalent and non-equivalent fractions. We will soon be learning to work with decimals. In English reading and writing, the new homework policy reinforces the ability of students to write a clear essay with introduction, body and conclusion. Each week the students read a topic of their interest and in class work to improve their writing skills to write a clear, concise report. We continue to discuss and reinforce in the classroom the mentality of growth mindset to always be open to take risks and learn from them.
