Peek at the Week

Week of September 17th-21st

 

Math: Generalize place value for multi-digit whole numbers.  

We will begin the week with solving multi-step math problems.  While solving these problems, the students will make sense of the problem and persevere in solving them.  There is often a lot of information in these problems. It is recommended that the fourth grader reads each problem three times in order to know what the problem is asking to be solved.  The fourth graders will also be adding using U.S. traditional addition. On Wednesday, the fourth graders will be introduced to the first Open Response Problem. In this problem, they will be “cracking a code” to help them practice place value structure.  On the second day of the open response lesson, the students will revise their work. Because this is a two day lesson, the students will only have three pages of math homework this week. Math homework will be due on Thursday.

 

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

As the students are reading, they will practice summarizing the text.  When summarizing the text, the students should be able to identify the who, what, where, why, and when of what they are reading.  Practice summarizing text with your fourth graders at home.

 

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

Word choice will be the focus of our writing mini-lessons this week.  First, the students will review using transitional words to manage the sequence of events.  They will also be inspired to incorporate concrete words or phrases and sensory details from re-reading excerpts of The Whipping Boy.
