This week in 4th grade Reading and English, they continued to practice their Unit 12 Greek and Latin roots that focused on words that have to do with pairs and the number two. They took their quiz on these words Friday, and will be getting Unit 13 next week. Last week they had a lesson on independent and dependent clauses, which we recapped and practiced again this week. Going hand in hand with clauses comes out subordinating conjunctions that they also refreshed their memory on. In the lab last week, they created review games which the whole class participated in this week. This week all students started MAPS testing which took some class time, and lastly, they enjoyed a Feel Good Friday with ELA centers.
