Ms. McDugall - Language Arts


Hi, everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful, relaxing weekend. We had another fantastic week in fourth grade last week. I enjoyed meeting many of you at Back to School Night. By the way, I hope everyone is able to see this color print a little better. :)  I will be out on Monday and Tuesday of this week, but your children are in wonderful hands with their substitute teacher. If you need to contact a fourth grade teacher while I am out, please email Mrs. Guarini or Mr. Sheng. Otherwise, I will return any emails when I return to school on Wednesday.

Here is an L.A. update: Our new mentor text is Grandfather's Journey - which we began on Friday - and our strategy focus this week is making predictions. We will continue to practice summarizing text. As we move through our historical fiction novel,
The Secret School, the children are coming up with great ideas for their culminating projects. In English, we are going to study direct objects and subject complements as well as build on our knowledge subjects and predicates. We are also going to study sentence variation and paragraph structure. We will soon begin our first writing project: a descriptive paragraph. Our  next Reading Skills and Spelling tests are on Tuesday, September 30th. Let's have another terrific week together!
