Peek at the Week
Week of April 17th-21st
Report Card Pick-Up
Wednesday is a non-attendance day for students because parents are invited to pick up report cards. Thank you to the parents that have signed up for a conference. Please bring your fourth grader to the conference because they will lead the meeting identifying their strengths in fourth grade and goals for the remaining ¼ of the school year.
Math:Solve Problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements.
We will begin fourth quarter with converting cups, pints, quarts, and gallons. Please check in with your fourth grader to see if they know how many cups, pints, and quarts are in a gallon. We will continue with using units of measurement in word problems on Tuesday. The students will begin to multiply fractions to problem solve. Then on Thursday, the students will explicitly learn how to multiply fractions. Every fourth grader should be able to identify the multiples of a given unit fraction.
Reading: Demonstrate understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meanings.
Our reading genre for the next ⅛ of the school year will be poetry. This week’s focus is figurative language. We will spend a day identifying simile, metaphor, and personification in different poems. The students will study poems and interpret the meaning of each type of figurative language. On Friday, they will be assessed on identifying two types of figurative language and interpreting the meaning.
Writing: Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
As we continue our unit on poetry, the fourth graders will continue to learn about the different aspects of writing poetry. First the fourth graders will learn about and use different poetry crafting techniques in their writing. Then, the fourth graders will learn about and use wordplay in their poetry writing. Next, the fourth graders will learn about and use troubleshooting techniques to perfect their poetry writing. Finally, the fourth graders will learn about different poetic forms and focus on a particular poetic form in their poetry writing.
