Peek at the Week

Week of October 9th-13th

 

Math: Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.  

To begin our unit on multiplication, the fourth graders will create arrays.  They will also use multiplication to find the formula for the area of a rectangle.  The students will be able to know the factor and a product of a multiplication equation.  Additionally, the students will know the difference between a multiple and a factor.

 

Writing:  Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.  

The writers will continue to use their outline to write the body paragraphs of their explanatory writing piece. They will also write an introduction and conclusion of their explanatory essay.  While they are writing their paragraphs, they will focus on using transitional words and precise language to explain their topic.

 

Reading: Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.  

The fourth grade readers will continue to make inferences in the text.  They will know that to make an inference they will use the explicit text evidence with their schema. Practice making inferences when reading with your fourth grader at home.
