Curriculum this Week:
Math- This week in math we will continue learning about Fractions. Our focus this week will be on the Fraction standards 4.NF.2 and 4.NF.3.
4.NF.2 Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole.
4.NF.3 Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b. Understand addition of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
Writing- We will continue working on our Informational Books. We will begin "publishing" them into an ebook before Spring Break.
Social Studies- In social studies this week we will begin learning about the Cherokee Native Americans.
