Peek at the Week

Week of June 4th-8th

 

NWEA

The fourth graders will take the NWEA on Tuesday, June 5th, and Wednesday, June 6th.  We have had conversations about reaching our goals because of how every fourth grader has worked hard to get smarter this year.  Conversations have focused on how much we have learned in math and how it is important to stay focused on every passage that we read.  Because of the NWEA, the reading homework this week will be to rest and stay focused for the test.

 

Invention Convention

The Fourth Grade Invention Convention will take place on Thursday, June 7th.  Everyone is welcome to attend from 9-10AM in Room 207.

 

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

The writers of fourth grade will continue to fracture their Greek myths.  Mini-lessons will focus on using other words besides said in dialogue, writing with sensory imagery, using the correct punctuation, using transitional words, and writing a resolution with an unforgettable ending.  When students have finished their final draft of their fractured myth, they will be encouraged to free write.

 

Math: Build fractions from unit fractions.

Because of NWEA and Invention Convention, there will only be one formal math lesson taught this week.  They will solve problems with fractions and convert units of measure.

 

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

The students will re-read different versions of Pandora, King Midas, Perseus, Persephone, and Theseus.  As they are reading, they will compare and contrast the two different versions in a Venn Diagram.
