Peek at the Week

Week of April 29th-May 3rd


Writing: Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.  

The fourth grade writers will be finishing their poetry books during the first part of this week.  On May 1st, the students will be introduced to the new genre – fracturing a Greek myth. The first Greek Myth that they will be fracturing is King Midas.  They will be instructed to “break” this traditional Greek Myth in anyway that they want. Ask your fourth grader how he or she is choosing to fracture the myth.  


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

The week will start with the fourth graders solving multistep  number stories involving division, measurement, and fractions. When practicing homework with your fourth grader, make sure that he or she knows what the problem is asking before actually solving the problem.  The fourth graders will also be looking at patterns and identifying the difference between triangular and rectangular numbers.


Reading: Explain major differences between poems, drama, and prose, and refer to the structural elements of poems (verse, rhythm, meter).  

Throughout the week, the fourth graders will identify the rhyme scheme of specific poems.  They will also read poems by Kenn Nesbitt to identify the rhythm of poems. Please ask your fourth graders to identify poems that he or she has enjoyed reading in class.
