So, fall of 2019 will be my third time teaching fourth grade, and it is a fun grade! This is my tentative block plan –
August- Man and Animal 1 which will flow into….
September/October – Local Geography and Man and Animal 2 – we will be looking at the regions of our state through habitats and our local animals/camping
November – Math/Introduce fractions
December- Geometry/ Form Drawing – most likely will draw from Viking Hero Tales by Isabel Wyatt
January – Norse Mythology
February – Birds of Prey (special interest of my student)- each morning I am going to try to work in fraction problems related to birds! That should be interesting!
March – Weland the Smith – rather dark tale, but I think our son will love it.
April – African Tales/African Hero Tales/camping trips
May – Math in the Garden (leading into Botany for Fifth Grade)/ camping trips
We will be doing math daily and extra reading and spelling practice as my little guy is behind in academic skills. We will also be working on survival skills in conjunction with his ninth grade sister, and in handwork we will be working on cross-stitch throughout the year.
It’s going to be a fun school year in the fall!
Blessings and love,
