A Peek at this Week
Math: We are focusing on solving multi-step word problems using all operations and working
with multiples, factors, types of numbers (prime and composite) and multiplicative
comparisons. These topics are wrapping up our work with multiplication and division. We will
be moving into fractions after the winter break
Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 7 as a statement that 35 is
5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative
comparisons as multiplication equations
Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and
equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing
multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the
four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems
using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of
answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1-100. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple
of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1-100 is a multiple of a
given one-digit number. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1-100 is prime or

Reading & Social Studies: Students will work in their research book clubs to explore the Lost
Colony (NC History). They will be evaluating sources, and analyzing point of view/perspective
of historical events. Class work will be used as formative assessment of students

RI.4.1 Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when
drawing inferences.
RI.4.2 Determine the main idea of a text and explain how it is supported by key details; summarize the
RI.4.3 Explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text,
including what happened and why, based on specific information in the text.
RI.4.7 Interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, graphs,
diagrams, timelines, animations, or interactive elements on Web pages) and explain how the information
contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears.

Writing: We continue to generate ideas for writing. These ideas will serve as inspiration for
future writing units. This is an important step in becoming a fourth grade writer!

Science: Students will be looking at the fat content of foods we eat and learning how to read
a food label. Ask them questions at home about the labels on the foods in your home and the
choices they make. They will also be looking at the exercises they do and how this can benefit
their bodies. We will finish our study of nutrition with an in class project for their formal
