Peek at the Week

Week of March 12th-March 16th

 

Writing: Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.  

Once again, the fourth graders will respond to a prompt after reading two different informational text passages.  This week, the two passages will focus on the characteristics of the great white shark. As they are reading the two passages, the fourth grader will be mindful of how the two articles are similar and different. They will document the similarities and differences of the two articles in a Venn Diagram.  Throughout the week, they will be mindful of specific details about the characteristics of sharks as they respond to the prompt.

 

Reading: Determine the main idea and explain how it is supported by key details; summarize the text.  

After reading fictional mysteries for the first five weeks of the third quarter, the fourth graders will now focus their reading on real life mysteries.  Every fourth grader was given an anthology of real life mysteries. As they are reading the different real life mysteries, they will identify the main idea of the text supporting it with two details.  They will present their comprehension in a graphic organizer. Ask your fourth grader which real life mystery he or she thinks is the most interesting.

 

Math: Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems.  Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.  Understand concepts of angle and measure angles. Draw and identify lines and angles and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles.

The fourth graders will continue learning about how to interpret remainders based on the context of a division problem.  Students will also continue to learn about angles, a continuation from Unit 5. They will use tools to measure angles, such as an angle measurer and a half-circle protractor.  In addition, students will learn about complementary and supplementary angles in order to add and subtract to find unknown angle measures.
