Peek at the Week

Week of May 6th-10th


Math: Build fractions from unit fractions.

The students will continue to work with fractions.  First they will multiply and add fractions to solve problems about state birds.  Then, they will convert fractions and decimals to solve number stories involving money.  Next, they will record fractional lengths on a line plot. On Thursday, they will take the Open Response Assessment.  On this test, they will use a number line and fraction circles to explain how to multiply. Please let me know if your fourth grader needs practice multiplying fractions.  


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

This week, the fourth grade writers will be fracturing the story of Persephone.  As they fracture this story, mini-lessons will focus on using sensory imagery, using transitional words, writing similes, and writing an unforgettable ending.  Ask you fourth grader how he or she is fracturing the story of Persephone.


Reading: Compare and contrast the point of view from which different stories are narrated, including the difference between first-and third-person narrations.  

Throughout the week, the fourth graders will identify the point of view of different poems.  Ask your fourth grader to identify the different poems that they are reading in school.
