Peek at the Week

Week of December 2nd-6th

Math: Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering.

This week, the fourth graders will be able to use the equivalent fraction rule to identify equivalent fractions. Every fourth grader should know that if you take a number and multiply the numerator and the denominator by the same number the fraction will be equivalent. Ask your fourth grader to practice this rule with you. Additionally, the fourth grader will use a number line to identify equivalent fractions. On Wednesday, the students will solve an open response where they will have to compare fractions with different numerators and denominators. They will then analyze student work and revise their open responses on Thursday.

Writing: Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.

During the month of December, the fourth grade writers will be writing informational books. First, they will create an expert list stating topics that they consider themselves to be an expert. Then, they will write everything that they know about the topic. From that writing, they will create an outline to help them organize their writing for their book. This week, they will write the first, second, and third paragraphs of their book. Save the date for Friday, December 20th, when all parents will be invited to a publishing party.

Reading: Describe the overall structure of events, ideas, concepts, or information in text or part of text.

As the fourth graders read their biographies, they will identify the cause or effect of a specific event. Ask your fourth grader about the biography that he or she is reading in his or her guided reading book.
