Peek at the Week

Week of March 6th-March 10th

 

Writing: Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.

To prepare for the writing portion of the PARCC assessment, the students will be given a portion of the practice test.  They will first read three different pieces of informational texts.  As they are reading, they will gather information about the illustrations and identify how they help the reader learn about the text.  Each day of the week, the students will be writing a new paragraph to correspond with each text.  

 

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

As a culminating activity to reading their mysteries, the fourth graders will be working with their guided reading groups to perform a skit of the book that they read.  After they receive the rubric of their skit, they will plan their performance to correspond with the plot of their mystery.  They will practice it every day before Friday when the performance will take place.  

 

Math: Build fractions from unit fractions.  

Because there will be no formal lessons this week, there will be no homework.  On Tuesday, they will take the Unit 5 Test.  Concepts on the test include decomposing fractions, solving word problems involving fractions, adding fractions and mixed numbers, subtracting fractions and mixed numbers, using data to create a line plot, estimating angle measurement, identifying symmetry, and solving a multi-step problem.  Wednesday’s open response test will have the students explaining the thinking of another student’s math work.  On Thursday, the students will make corrections to their math test and bring home their test.  Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the test.
