Peek at the Week

Week of November 11th-15th

 

Math: Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles.  

On Tuesday, the fourth graders will classify quadrilaterals by their properties.  They will continue with their study of geometry by identifying lines of symmetry of polygons and pictures later in the week.  

 

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

The readers will end their fiction unit with creating a book cover of one of the books that they read in guided reading.  The book cover will showcase the reading skills that they practiced during the first quarter. For example, on the cover, they will identify the character trait of the protagonist of the book.  In the inside, they will identify the main idea, theme, and use explicit text evidence to make an inference. On the back cover, they will write an effective summary. A rubric will be used to grade the book covers so that the fourth graders know the expectations of the assignment.  

 

Writing: Write opinion pieces on topics or texts, supporting a point of view with reasons and information.  

The writing genre of the month of November is opinion writing.  Every week the fourth graders will be given a topic to debate. Each fourth grader will take a side and write their opinion.  This week’s debate is about schools being able to celebrate Halloween. Ask your fourth grader to share his or her opinion with you.
