Peek at the Week ~ Week of February 23rd

Miss Wejman’s

Peek at the Week

Week of February 23rd-27th

Math: Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering.

As we get ready to end Fraction February, the fourth graders will experiment with probability. They will use fractions and percents to identify the probability in different game situations. Because division will be on Thursday’s test, we will review division on Wednesday. Other math concepts that will be included on the test are equivalent fractions, ordering fractions, plotting and labeling points on a coordinate grid, multiplication, adding and subtracting fractions, and probability. If there is a math concept that you would specifically like me to practice with your child, please let me know.   Thursday’s homework will entail the students making corrections to their math test. Corrections will be due on Friday.


Social Studies: Determine the meaning of general academic and domain-specific words or phrases in a text.

The students will read about Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Arizona. As they learn about the southwestern states in the present day, they will use context clues to identify unfamiliar words.


Science: Describe and explain the properties of solids, liquids and gases.

After observing how temperature affects water, they will read informational text about ice found in our world. They will also read about the reasons of why some areas of our world are dry and why others are wet.


Reading: Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.

In addition to talking about the plot of the text, the fourth grade readers will identify the specific cause of an event in the text that they are reading.


Writing: Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.

The fourth grade writers will be given a rubric to identify how they will be graded for the final draft of their informational book that they will be writing. Some of the topics that they will be graded on include word choice, transitional words, organization, and conventions. Since the students are writing informational text, they will be encouraged to use text features to correspond with the text.
