This Week's Learning Topics

Math Topics


4.MD.6 Measure angles in whole-number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure.

"I Can" Statement:

I can measure angles using a protractor.

What will we learn? When using a protractor place the vertex at the center point and place one ray along the horizontal edge. The angle is measured by finding where the second ray intersects the arc of the protractor. When drawing an angle the process is just the opposite. Draw a ray and place the center of the protractor on the endpoint and mark off the points of the angle measure. Use the straightedge of the protractor to connect point to the vertex. Essential vocabulary for this standard includes: protractor, degree, and vertex

IXL Standards: P.13, P.16

Reading Topics


RL.4.3 Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., a character’s thoughts, words, or actions).

"I Can" Statement:

I can analyze character’s emotions and physical traits.

What will we learn? Students will read several texts requiring them to analyze characters in the story. We will focus mostly on inferring character traits based on what information the author gives us about the characters. Students will cite these traits in the text as they answer questions about a character's behavior, thoughts, and feelings.
