Reading:
Standard: ELACC4RI7: Interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, graphs, diagrams, time lines, animations, or interactive elements on Web pages) and explain how the information contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears.

We will begin this week with a mini lesson on nonfiction text features. The students will be given projects to demonstrate their knowledge of the various nonfiction text features. The students will also be assessed in reading. Each child will be given the DRA to determine his or her reading level.

Language Arts:
In grammar, we are reviewing the different types of nouns. Our writing instruction will begin with a mini lesson on watermelons versus seeds to teach the importance of narrowing down a writing topic.

Math:
MCC4.NBT.2 Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.

The use a graphic organizer to review number forms. We will progress into rounding whole numbers. Please make sure your child has mastered their multiplication facts.

Social Studies:
SS4E1 The student will use the basic economic concepts of trade, opportunity cost, specialization, voluntary exchange, productivity, and price incentives to illustrate historical events.

The students are continuing to work in cooperative groups. Each group is in charge of creating a new planet. Last week, we reviewed physical maps. The students chose appropriate features for their physical maps, based on the specifications given in class. This week, one of the tasks will be to decide which items will be needs or wants.
