Room 207

Peek at the Week

Week of April 23rd-27th


Math: Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems.

We will begin the week with the students critiquing three different student work samples of the open response recipe problem that they completed last Thursday.  After they critique the work of three different students, they will revise their own work. The students will also use division to solve both multi-step and measurement problems.  When working on homework with your fourth grader, please make sure that he or she understands the problem before he or she solves it.


Writing: Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.

Because the students earned 1,000 DOJO points, they will have a poetry party on Friday.  All parents are invited to attend our party. The poets will share their poetry books. Even though Friday is a late start day, parents and their poets are invited to come to Room 207 for the party at 8:45.  At the party, we will also celebrate Miss Aron’s outstanding internship year of teaching in Room 207. Friday is her last day. Throughout the week, the students will work on the final drafts of their poems to publish in their books.  


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

As the students continue to read poetry, they will identify the point of view of the poems that they are reading.  Poets that the students will be reading include Jack Prelutzky and Langston Hughes. Questions that the students will answer include: What person is the poem written in? Who is the speaker? Who is the speaker’s audience? What is the speaker’s message? When reading with your fourth grader at home ask your reader to identify which person the text is written.  


Field Trip

Thank you to everyone who has turned in their permission slip and money for Tuesday’s Field Trip to the DuSable Museum.  We will leave at 9:45AM and return at 12:30PM. Because we will miss our regular scheduled lunch, students should bring their lunch from home.
