The 4th Grade Team!
Reader's Workshop: Readers Workshop is the literacy curriculum we use to help our students learn reading strategies to become better readers. Reader's Workshop begins with a 10 minute whole group mini lesson focusing on a reading strategy followed by an activity on the focus and 30 minutes of independent reading. This will look a little different with distance learning but our goal is to have small groups every day of school.
Writer's Workshop: We will be using Writers Workshop, for writing instruction. It follows the large group mini lesson and independent writing time detailed above. It is important to remember that writer's write, we will be writing every day and we ecourage all of our students to keep a personal journal throughout the year!
Social Studies and Science: These subjects are integrated into our daily units of study.
We will be using the EVERYDAY MATH curriculum which was developed by the University of Chicago School of Mathematics project. WIth our teaching we will be prioritizing the standards that the students will see a lot of throughout the year. Units of study in fourth grade include: geometry figures, multiplication, division, estimation, fractions, decimals, percents, rates, area, perimeter, organizing data through charts and graphs, solids, weight, and measures.
