Week - At - A - Glance
In ELA, we will be completing drafts and beginning the revision process for the Informational Zoo Writing. During this process, we will work on commas and conjunctions. As always, we will also be improving our complete sentences skills. As we work on informational texts, we will also continue our work in Literature. Our first book clubs are wrapping up and we will switch books soon. The new book list includes a few from previous books: The Chocolate Touch, The BFG, There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom. New book choices will include The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall and Runaway Ralph. We are learning to think as we read. We are making connections, asking questions, making predictions, visualizing, and summarizing. We will also really start focusing on characters words and actions for inferences and meaning.
In Math, we are working on division. I think the kids are realizing that we really meant what we said about the importance of knowing your basic facts in 4th grade. We, the 4th grade team, emphasizes knowing basic facts. For kiddos who struggle, we use strategies that meet the learner where they are. One of the most popular strategies is listing multiples to reach the dividend that is used. Look for a screencast about division soon. We are fast approaching a mid-chapter checkpoint.
