Peek at the Week

Week of May 29th-June 1st

 

Writing: Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.

The writers will continue to fracture the Greek myth of their choice.  As they are writing, they will be focused on writing the requirements of the final draft.  Mini-lessons this week will focus on sentence fluency, paragraph breaks, sensory imagery, and dialogue.  

 

Math:Build fractions from unit fractions.

All of this week’s math lessons pertain to fractions.  First, they will solve the area of a rectangle with a fractional dimension.  Then, they will solve word problems multiplying fractions. Finally, they will solve conversion problems using fractions.  

 

Reading: Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text.  

While the students continue to read Greek Myths, they will identify a character trait to describe a character in the myth.  They will use text evidence to support their trait. Ask your fourth grader to retell the myths that they are reading in class.  The Greek God or Goddess Report is due on Friday. This is the only reading homework that is due this week.
