We have been busy learning so much in this first quarter and adjusting to all of the new technology we’re using. In math, we’ve focused on multiplication and division as well as place value. While we read across all subjects, we’ve had a lot of practice with both informational and fictions standards and goals so far this year. Science has been full of learning about heredity, traits, and plants and animals. In social studies we’ve looked at maps, as well as the three branches of government and are starting to learn about Florida’s history. Last, but certainly not least is our writing in fourth grade. Writing is a big focus for fourth grade but our students are well on their way to a structured essay with all of the parts, organization, evidence, and grammar and conventions. Soon their essays will be based on text evidence and articles.
FGCU’s panther posse is a great way for us to kick off quarter 2 helping us to prepare to save and protect the habitats and species around our homes here in Golden Gate Estates. We have a lot more to come and are learning a lot about how to work in groups on Webex to help us keep communicating and working collaboratively. We are happy to be back in the swing of things and looking forward to a wonderful Q2.
