Peek at the Week

Week of April 9th-12th

Math: Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements.  

We will begin the week by converting liquid measurements.  At home, make reference to converting gallons, quarts, pints, and cups using tools in the kitchen.  Throughout the week, the students will solve word problems where the student multiplies a whole number by a fraction.  When working with your child on word problems at home, please make sure that they understand the problem before they persevere in solving the problem.  


Writing: Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.

Poetry mini-lessons this week will focus on line breaks, onomatopoeia, and writing a form poem.  Ask your fourth grade poet which poem he or she is most proud of writing this week.


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

This week, students will refer to details in their real-life mystery books to determine a cause and an effect that takes place.  Cause and effect relationships are used to explain why or how something happened in a story


Report Card Pick-Up

Wednesday, April 18th has been designated as report card pick up for Chicago Public Elementary Schools.  For the spring conferences, the students will be leading the conference. Today every fourth grader received a report card pick up request form.  Please complete the form with your top three requested time slots. I will complete the conference schedule on a first come, first serve basis.
