  • c. Use context to confirm or self-correct word recognition and understanding, rereading as necessary.

Math Standards


  • 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?

Mrs. Izzo

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!

Thank you for supporting our efforts at EMIS! GO EAGLES!

Mrs. Villiard

Students have been learning about first hand and second hand accounts in Social Studies. This week Mrs. Villiard played a little prank to make sure the class had a first hand account experience to share! Students recorded their first hand account and then Mrs. Villiard shared it was all a joke! Then students wrote about the experience. The next day in Social Studies, students wrote a second hand account of the trial of Susan B. Anthony. Visit the website her class made to remember the difference between first hand and second hand accounts.
