Peek at the Week

Week of May 29th-June 2nd

 

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

After fracturing four different Greek myths during the month of May, the fourth graders will now pick one of them to write as a final draft.  Categories on the rubric that they will receive on the rubric this week include a detailed exposition, plot, transitional words, description, dialogue, word choice, and conventions.  This week, the students will all be given the opportunity to edit misspelled words and work with a partner to help them revise their work.  

 

Math: Solve problems involving measurement and conversion on measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.

Because of Olympic Day and the Third Grade Play there will only be one formal math lesson taught this week.  In that lesson, they will be plotting data on a line plot.  Math homework will be due this week on Thursday.  

 

Reading: Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text.

As the fourth graders continue to read Greek myths, they will use a character’s thoughts, actions, and words to describe the protagonist of the myth with a character trait.  At home, ask your fourth grader to use text evidence to describe the protagonist of his or her independent book.
