Peek at the Week

Week of June 11th-15th

Math: Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.

We will end the fourth quarter with both a Unit 8 Test and a Cumulative Test.  On Thursday’s Unit Test, the students will be assessed on solving multi-step word problems, angle measure, symmetry, plotting data on a line plot, adding decimals, multiplying fractions to solve a word problem, converting liquid units of measure, solving a cryptarithm, and finding multiple ways to solve a problem.  Friday’s Cumulative Assessment will have problems pertaining to patterns, angle measure, decomposing fractions, multiplying two digit numbers by two digit numbers, symmetry, solving word problems with division and fractions, converting units of measure, and plotting data on a line plot. Please let me know if there are any skills that you would like me to practice with your fourth grader.  In Monday’s lesson, the fourth grader will solve cryptarithms, a puzzle where each letter stands for a digit, the same letter stands for the same digit, there is only one solution, and there cannot be a zero in the greatest place value of any number. For Tuesday, the students will use a variety of operations to reach the same number. Because of Olympic Day, all math homework will be due on Wednesday.  


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

All fractured myths will be due on Friday.  This week’s mini-lessons will focus on revising and editing.  In addition to working on our myths, the students will also reflect on how their writing has improved in fourth grade and how they will want their writing to get better in fifth grade.  Have your fourth grader tell you how his or her writing improved and have them identify specific writing goals for fifth grade.


Reading: Make connections between the text of a story or drama and a visual or oral presentation of the text, identifying where each version reflects specific descriptions and directions in the text.  

The fourth graders will work in groups to plan and act out the Greek myth of their choice.  They will receive a rubric stating how the preparation, planning, and performance of the skit will be graded.  Ask your fourth grader which Greek Myth he or she will be performing. The performances will take place on Friday afternoon.  There is no reading homework this week.


Olympic Day

All of the fourth graders will compete in Olympic Day on Wednesday.  


Monday, June 18th

Y is for Year End Cleaning Day.  Students will take home everything on this day.  They will spend the day cleaning the classroom. Please make sure that they come to school with a bag appropriate to take home all materials.  


Tuesday, June 19th

We will end the 2017-2018 school year with a picnic. The fourth graders will be invited to the picnic in the morning.  After lunch, we will go inside for Room 207 Awards and a class talent show. All students are invited to perform.
