Students are taking the Chapter 3 test this week.  This exam assesses these 4th grade standards:

  • Demonstrate fluency with multiplication and division facts.
  • Use an understanding of place value to multiply a number by 10, 100 and 1000.
  • Multiply multi-digit numbers.
  • Estimate products and quotients of multi-digit whole numbers.
  • Solve multi-step real-world and mathematical problems requiring the use of addition, subtraction and multiplication of multi-digit whole numbers.
  • Divide multidigit whole numbers.

Students who do not satisfy the standards will have an opportunity to re-test later in the year, but we will be moving on to Chapter 4.

Chapter 4 focuses on graphs and data.  Students will create, read, and interpret a variety of graphs.

  • Students will use tables, bar graphs, timelines and Venn diagrams to display data sets.


This week students are reading When I Went to the Library, which is a humerous story is written in the form of an apology letter.

Students will:

  • Refer to details and examples in a text when answering questions about the story.
  • Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text.
  • Describe the overall structure of events in a story.

We will also be studying the long e vowel sound in spelling.  Students will look at different ways to write the long e and examine those spelling patterns.
