Peek at the Week

Week of March 31st– April 4th

 

Math: Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into marching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry. 

Throughout the week, the fourth graders will use a transparent mirror to draw a reflection of an image.  After practicing drawing reflections, they will also identify symmetrical lines on polygons.  At the end of the week, they will be able to differentiate between a reflection, translation, and rotation.

 

Social Studies: Determine the main idea of a text and explain how it is supported by key details; summarize the text.

As the fourth graders are reading about the Mountain and Pacific states, they will be identifying the main idea of each section.  Each main idea needs to be supported with three supporting details. 

 

Science: Know and apply concepts that explain how living things function, adapt, and change. 

Concluding our human body unit, the fourth graders will learn about the respiratory system and cell structure.  After learning about the vocabulary of the cell, they will model the cell structures using candy.    

 

 

Reader’s Workshop: Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text; summarize the text. 

Guiding reading group discussions will focus on author’s purpose and theme.  As the students identify the author’s purpose of writing the book, they will be able to support their opinions with specific text evidence. 

 

Writer’s Workshop: Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.

Because April marks poetry month, Room 207 will be writing poetry.  Every day, writer’s workshop will begin with reading a chapter from Poetry Matters by Ralph Fletcher. In this book, the children’s author and writing teacher guru, gives kids advice on how to write poetry.  After reading the chapter, the poets of Room 207 will explore with poetry writing from the suggestions that Ralph Fletcher gives in his book.  Poetry strategies this week will include imagery, repetition, and alliteration.
