Fourth graders are analyzing the living and non-living things within the pond, forest, and prairie ecosystems of Missouri and determining what types of living things are present (i.e., producers, consumers, herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, decomposers, scavengers, predators, and prey).

Here’s what we’ll be up to next week (it’s busy with many things, but we’ll be sure to fit some learning in, too!):

Reading: Finishing From The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

Math: Geometry unit continues

Science: Comparing/contrasting Missouri ecosystems; interdependence

Word work/writing: There will NOT be a spelling list this week — instead, we will use our word work and writing times to learn about Roman numerals.

Have a wonderful weekend!
