Peek at the Week

Week of September 24th-28th

 

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

After spending the first three weeks of  practicing components of good narrative writing, the fourth grade writers will now write a final draft.  To assist them in the writing of their final draft, they will have a rubric identifying the writing skills that will be graded.  Categories include plot, exposition, dialogue, transitional words, descriptive words, resolution, and conventions. Throughout the week, the students will edit their writing focusing on paragraph breaks, using the ipad to spell their words correctly, and using correct capitalization and punctuation.  They will also work with a partner to peer edit.

 

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

Guided reading group discussions will focus on theme.  The students will be taught that theme is the general idea that the writer wants to express.  When reading with your fourth grader at home ask him or her to tell you what the theme of what they are reading is.  

 

Math: Generalize place value understanding multi-digit whole numbers; Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles.  

We will begin the week with subtracting using the U.S. traditional method.  Then we will convert between yards, feet, and inches. The second half of the week will be focus on geometry specifically on the properties of points, line segments, lines, rays, angles, triangles, and quadrilaterals.
