Peek at the Week

Week of February 11th-15th

 

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

Mini-lessons this week will focus on dialogue and word choice.  The writers will practice using dialogue to show the responses of characters to situations.  They will also be encouraged to use sensory imagery to give more description to their mystery writing.  

 

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

As the students continue to read their mysteries, they will pay attention to any foreshadowing clues in their guided reading books. The students will learn that foreshadowing is an author’s use of hints and clues to suggest events that will occur later in the story.  They will pay attention to foreshadowing clues through dialogue, description, and the attitude and reactions of the characters. Ask your fourth grader to define examples of foreshadowing with you as they are reading at home.

 

Math: Students subtract fractions, record data on a line plot, and explore iterating angles.

This week in math the students will be covering a variety of topics. The first half of the week they will continue their work with fractions, except this week the focus will be on subtraction. Later in the week, they will be introduced to line plots. They will not only read a data plot, but will be able to record data themselves. Lastly, students will explore angles and the different ways that they are labeled.
