Peek at the Week

Week of June 13th-17th

 

Math: Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements.

The students will take the Unit 8 Assessment on Wednesday.  They will be assessed on solving word problems, using schema to find an unknown angle measure, finding a line of symmetry, solving problems using data on a line plot, and solving cryptarithms.  On Friday, the students will take the Cumulative Assessment.  The students will solve word problems, find a pattern in a set of numbers, find angle measure, decompose fractions, multiply double digit numbers, find lines of symmetry, and solve problems from a line plot.  This test will be a good indicator of which math skills the fourth grader should practice before 5th grade.  The students will take both tests home with them on Friday.  If you have any specific questions, comments, or concerns about any of the math skills, please let me know.

 

Science: Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.

Thursday, June 16th will be Invention Convention.  Throughout the day students will be presenting their prototypes to members of the Ray Community.  Parents are invited to an Invention Convention Sneak Peak at 8:45AM on Thursday.  On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, students will have ample time to complete their prototype and work on their display board.  On the board, the students must have a title, identify the problem, list materials, state the procedure, identify the variables with the solution, and label the prototype.  They will receive a rubric stating how the presentation of the rubric will be graded.  Throughout the week, the students will review the requirements of the actual Invention Convention.  Please contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns, about the Invention Convention.

 

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

Fractured traditional literature stories will be due on Friday.  This week, the students will be revising and editing their writing.  The writers of Room 207 will be using different strategies to spell words correctly.  They will also look at the transitional words and sensory images that they used to enhance their writing.
