Peek at the Week

Week of June 12th-16th

 

Math: Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements.

Because grades are due on Friday, the fourth graders will have three different assessments this week.  On Tuesday, they will take the Unit 8 Assessment which will include solving a multi-step word problem, identifying angle measure, identifying lines of symmetry, plotting data on a line plot, adding decimals, multiplying a whole number by a fraction, adding fractions, and converting cups to quarts.  On Wednesday, the students will take the Unit 8 Cumulative Test.  They will be assessed on solving a multi-step problem, finding the unknown angle measure, solving word problems with a fraction, multiplying two digit numbers, lines of symmetry, converting units of measure, plotting data on a line plot, and adding decimals.  On Thursday, the students will take the End of the Year Assessment.  They will be assessed on solving word problems, finding patterns, place value, multiplying a two digit number by a two digit number, dividing a four digit dividend by a one digit divisor, converting units of measure, plotting data on a line plot, adding mixed numbers, comparing fractions, decomposing fractions, converting decimals and fractions, area, perimeter, angle measure, identifying a line, ray, line segment, acute angle, obtuse angle, and point, parallel lines, perpendicular sides, and symmetry.  If there is a specific math skill that you would like me to practice with your fourth grader, please let me know.  The fourth graders will be taking home these assessments this week.  Please use these tests to practice specific math skills over the summer.  

 

Reading: Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text; summarize the text.

To end our Greek Mythology unit, the students will work in a group to act out a Greek Myth.  The students will receive a rubric to identify how the skit will be graded.  Ask  your fourth grader what myth he or she is choosing to act out on Friday.  

 

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

All fractured myths are due on Friday.  Mini-lessons will focus on word choice and conventions.  The students will also have time to share their writing with other writers in the class.  

 

Clean Up Day

Students will take home all supplies on Friday.  Please have your fourth grader bring a bag to take everything home.
