Fourth Grade Specials
NFS Curriculum Update :: January, 2016
Fourth Grade continues reading regional fiction and nonfiction about the Northeast Region. We will read Lost in NYC, a graphic novel about the subway system; Brothers at Bat (New Jersey); Sugaring Time (Vermont) and Jubilee (Maine).
Students will watch several videos which discuss going shopping for clothing. The class will then brainstorm functional chunks of vocabulary used when shopping for clothes. With their assigned partners students will then create a shopping skit situation in which one student plays the role of store attendant “vendedor,” and the other student is the client “comprador." They will greet each other, ask what he/she is looking for or needs, what color, size, how much it is, describe a problem and say goodbye. Students will practice their dialogs and present their skits to class.
