Carroll's Class Happenings
All Things Fourth Grade - October
Our focus after summarizing will be about supporting inferences about informational text.
I am currently reading "The Watson's Go To Birmingham-1963" as a class read aloud. This book is a fantastic Newberry Honor Book, and a Coretta Scott King Award Winner.
NC.4. OA.1—Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison. (For example: 7 times as many as 5 is 35)
NC. 4.MD. 3 - Finding Area and Perimeter
NC. 4. NBT.5–Multiply a whole number of up to three digits by a one digit number, and a two digit by two digit number. Understanding using models and partial products. (** Parents, I will be posting a video when I teach this, the strategies that we use will be what they see on the EOG. It is imperative that they learn what a partial product is, and how to determine it in multiplication - based on our standards.)
NC. 4. NBT. 6—Finding quotients with up to three-digit dividends and one-digit divisors.
We will continue to learn about Native Americans of North Carolina, and the first people to inhabit different regions. We will do some research on the mystery of the Lost Colony of Roanoke.
Parents - I send home the newspaper on Monday, and it is due back on Friday. Students will not be given full credit on the crossword if they don't bring it back on Friday. I allow them to use it as "open notes" for the test. We also spend time during the week with extra activities.
