- Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
- Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including those that allude to significant characters found in mythology (e.g., Herculean).
Read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension.
a. Read grade-level text with purpose and understanding.
b. Read grade-level prose and poetry orally with accuracy, appropriate rate, and expression on successive readings.
c. Use context to confirm or self-correct word recognition and understanding, rereading as necessary.
Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.

What's going on in the 4th grade?
Ms. Patinka's students have been working on identifying question types before answering the question! Main idea, detail, or inference... that is the question!!
Mrs. LaRusso's class had fun celebrating their accomplishments of completing all classwork and earning 10 points or more on ClassDojo for the week by going to the Collaborative Classroom. Students enjoyed working together sitting on comfy chairs, bean bag seats, small couches, and even using stair climbers to exercise their legs while working. Learning and collaborating in a different space is fun!
Tweeting about women's suffrage. Mrs. Willard's class watched 3 videos on Pebble Go about Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B Anthony. The students then chose a twitter handle and tweeted a fact they learned about one of the women from the video.
Students are working together to break a part a number during our addition and subtraction unit!
Mr. Dumford's class has been learning about cultures around the world. Here, groups are working hard together on an activity that looks deeper into exactly what the word "culture" means.
Students worked in groups on QR task cards to review powers of ten and addiction subtraction number clues.
They worked together on whiteboards and created Google presentations.
They enjoyed the roles of checker, tech goo roo, scanner, recorder, and gopher.
Mrs. Izzo's class has been so busy! They are using Learning Style Menu to go along with their short novel, Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days! They will wrap up these activities by the end of next week!
Some have learned how to write a jingle and produce the Perfect Infomercials with PhotoBooth incorporating a Green Screen! They are very adorable and perfect!
We also have taken a gander at cultures around the world as well as schools around the world! The students were most interested in the lunches from around the world! This was a great video for students to see how other school children are eating! Some of their reactions or "OH moments" were pretty hilarious, as they inferred what some of the food items might be!
