Peek at the Week
Week of March 20th-24th
Writing: Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
In preparation for next week’s PARCC test, the students will be responding to a sample PARCC prompt. They will read two passages about hot air ballooning. In their writing, they will identify the steps of flying and landing hot air balloons. They will also have to compare and contrast the two articles. Throughout the week, the students will focus on using effective language and responding to the prompt. They will also meet with another writer to help to give feedback about another student’s writing.
Math: Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.
This week in math we will continue our division unit. The students will interpret remainders to decide how to package fruit for a fundraiser and explain their solutions. The next day, the students will discuss different solutions and explanations of the “package fruit” problem and revise their work. Then, the students will explore U.S. customary units of wright and convert tons to pounds and pounds to ounces. Finally, the fourth grader will practice using partial-quotients division to divide whole numbers with 3- and 4-digit dividends.
Reading: Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says and when drawing inferences from the text.
This week in reading, we will continue our inquiry unit on mysteries. The students will use text evidence to generate a list of inferences about their mystery. Then, they will use the inferences they had previously made to make connections and draw conclusions about their mystery. Finally they will be given a rubric for their final “mystery poster” and begin to combine and organize all of their information about their mystery in a logical way.
