Peek at the Week

Week of June 5th-9th

 

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

The students will continue to work on their fractured myth final drafts.  As they continue to write their fractured myth, they will focus on word choice, transitional words, and sentence fluency.  

 

Math: Build fractions from unit fractions.

The formulas for area and perimeter will be reviewed this week.  As an extra challenge, the students will be finding the area and perimeter of rectangles that have a length or width with a fraction or mixed number.  The fourth grader will also be solving multi-step math problems.

 

Reading: Compare and contrast the point of view from which different stories are narrated, including the difference between first- and third- person narratives.

In May, the students read the myths of Pandora, Perseus, and Persephone.  This week they will read another version of each story.  To fulfill the standard, they will compare and contrast the different versions of each myth in a Venn Diagram.  Ask your fourth grader to tell you the similarities and differences of each version.
