Then we will move into using main idea/details to write a fourth grade summary. Writing –The students are in the midst of creating their own Pourquoi Tale. Grammar -  We will work on how to punctuate conversation between characters, and we need to work on keeping our tenses in sync. Spelling –  We will be working with Latin and Greek Roots to help us learn how to figure out new words.   Social Studies: We are studying California Indians. So the students have their jobs: Geographer, Sociologist, Theologian, Political Scientist etc.... They are studying two different tribes within a California Region and then they will share their information with each other and their final product will be to assemble a slide show to present to the class.
