Peek at the Week

Week of February 26th-March 2nd

 

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

Mystery final drafts will be due on Friday.  Throughout the week, the students will make edits and revise their writing.  They will do this through peer editing and using an iPad to spell words correctly.  The fourth graders will also re-read their writing to guarantee that they are using appropriate paragraph breaks throughout their mysteries.  Ask your fourth grader to share his or her mystery with you on Friday.  

 

Reading: Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.  

This week in reader’s workshop, students will be focusing on the reading skill of making inferences in a text.  

Readers make inferences when they use context clues and their schema to figure out what is not directly said by the author.  Ask your fourth grader about what inferences they making in their reading. Book reports are due on Thursday, March 1st.  A template of the form can be found on the blog.  

 

Math: Generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers.  Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.  Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements.  Gain familiarity with factors and multiples.

Fourth graders will begin Unit 6: Division and Angles.  This week, they will solve problems using division.  We will first learn about finding patterns in extended division facts and go over the vocabulary for division (dividend, divisor, quotient).  Then, students will use division to solve the missing side lengths of rectangles.  Students will also solve division number stories using familiar multiples.  At the end of the week, we will go over how to divide multi-digit numbers using partial-quotients division.

 

Second Step: Identify Second Step skills and concepts being used in scenarios students might encounter at school.

Students will continue wrapping up the social-emotional skills and concepts they have been learning this year.  They will write their own story that involves characters going through the problem-solving steps.  We will also review the reflections from Home Link 22.
