Peek at the Week

Week of October 15th-19th

 

Writing: Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research. 

This week’s passage will be about two boys going on a camping trip.  The writers will have to rewrite the story from the other boy’s point of view.  Writing mini lessons will focus on using similes, using description to show how characters respond to a situation, and writing a luring lead.  

 

Math: Gain familiarity with factors and multiples.  

As the students continue to practice multiplication, they will identify multiples of a given number.  They will also be able to identify the difference between prime and composite numbers. Every fourth grader should know that the only two factors that a prime has is 1 and itself and that a composite number has more than two factors.  The students will also use multiplicative reasoning to solve an open response problem. On Wednesday, they will work with their group to make a conjecture. On Thursday, the students will analyze student work and revise their own work. Homework will be due on Thursday this week.  

 

Reading: Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text; summarize the text.  

The fourth grade readers will be able to identify the difference between the main idea and theme of the text.  When they identify the main idea of the text, they should be specific with the who and what of the text in one sentence.  In their identification of theme, the reader should state the author’s purpose of writing the text as a lesson or moral that can be applied to everyday life.
