Peek at the Week

Week of June 3rd-7th

 

Math: Solve problems involving measurements and conversion of measurements.  

We will begin the week converting units of measure specifically cups to fluid ounces and pounds to ounces.  The fourth graders will also use place value to solve Cryptarithms. We will take the math portion of the NWEA on Thursday.  

 

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

Our last writing genre of the year will be autobiography. The writers will begin by using their writing stamina to write everything that has happened to them.  They will then identify the most important events in a timeline. From there, they will create an outline to help them begin the autobiography.

 

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

Because there are many different versions of Greek myths, the fourth graders will focus on identifying the similarities and differences between two different versions.  Specifically, they will focus on using a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast the myths of King Midas and Persephone. There will be no reading homework this week.
