4th Grade News

The 4th graders have been busy since we returned from Christmas Break! Now that we are back from break we have starting learning about fractions in math. With this topic, we have already learned how to add/subtract with like denominators, how to find equivalent fractions, and have started finding a fraction's simplest form. In the upcoming weeks, we will be learning how to convert fractions to decimals, adding and subtracting mixed numbers, and converting mixed numbers into improper fractions and improper fractions into a mixed number.

In Language Arts, we have started our Young Author Stories that we will be completing in the upcoming month. As a reminder, students are required to read 3 AR points each month as a part of their Reading grade.
