This Week's Standards

Math
In math this week, we will be focusing on standards 4.OA.1 and 4.OA.2 which deal with multiplicative comparisons. By the end of the week, students will be expected to...
    1. ...interpret a multiplication problem as a comparison (i.e. 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5).
    2. ...multiply and divide to solve word problems using multiplicative comparisons.


    ELA

    In language arts this week, we will be focusing on standards RI.4.4 and L.4.4.b which deal with academic and domain-specific vocabulary and roots and affixes. By the end of the week, students will be expected to...

    1. ...identify common prefixes, suffixes, and roots and their meanings.
    2. ...use context such as definitions, examples, and restatements found in text to determine the meaning of a word.
    3. ...use a glossary, dictionary, or thesaurus to determine the meaning of a word.
