ELA - Our 2nd Quarter Unit is Survival! Throughout the unit students will consider the role that perspectives play in decision making. We will be focusing on Close Reading Skills, and students will understand that "Close Reading" allows them to find new and deeper meanings. Our novel this quarter is "The One and Only Ivan." We will also be reading many nonfiction articles and books about animals. This week we will continue reading "The One and Only Ivan." We will continue to work on inference skills, context clues, and we will be learning the difference between poetry, prose and dramas.

Writing: Literary Essay


MATH- Grade 4 Module 5: (We are skipping Module 4 for now) 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.


Science: We will be working on our Life Science standards . . .
