MATH- Module 5 (we skip over 4, then return after our fraction unit) Fraction Equivalence, Ordering, and Operations
In this 40-day module, students build on their Grade 3 work with unit fractions as they explore fraction equivalence and extend this understanding to mixed numbers. This leads to the comparison of fractions and mixed numbers and the representation of both in a variety of models. Benchmark fractions play an important part in studentsí ability to generalize and reason about relative fraction and mixed number sizes. Students then have the opportunity to apply what they know to be true for whole number operations to the new concepts of fraction and mixed number operations.

Math HW Help: Duane Habecker on YouTube is a great resource. Search for 4th Grade Module # and Lesson #. He will review/model homework problems.

ADVANCED ELA- Our third unit is focused around stories of perseverance. We will read texts featuring stories of characters who overcome adversity to achieve goals. The core novel will be "Bud, Not Buddy". Our Ad-ELA texts will include a book club model. Students will be choosing a book after a thorough preview, then reading and contributing to discussion with a small group reading the same book. At the end of the unit, the group will complete a creative culminating performance to the class.
In writing, we will focus on narrative response writing. We will also integrate PARCC practice as this assessment will be given in the spring. In word study, we will discover the meaning of various Greek and Latin roots.

SCIENCE/SOCIAL STUDIES- In science we will learn about Waves, Speed and Energy.
