Hello, and welcome to Mrs. Roose's Rockstars! I am so excited to have your child in my class! This year will be full of new, fun, and challenging learning opportunities!
In Social Studies, we will learn about exploration and colonization, and how groups of people have impacted the development of the Americas. During Science, we will complete investigations using the NGSS Science and Engineering Practices to further our understanding of landforms, magnets and electricity, water, and environments. We will use Eureka Math to study place value, rounding, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, measurement, geometry, fractions, and decimals. In addition, we will focus on critical thinking and problem solving skills. We will read a variety of complex, high-engaging texts, use comprehension strategies to identify the key ideas and details, and craft and structure of a text, and make connections! In Writing, we will focus on informative/explanatory and persuasive writing, related to our topics of study. In fourth grade we are reading to learn and writing to communicate our learning!
As Rockstars, we work collaboratively to help one another learn and grow, encourage one another to meet personal learning goals, and celebrate the successes we experience!
I cannot wait to watch your child ROCK this school year! It will be the #bestyearever!
