Week of November 11th


** Update ** As we have ventured into long division this week, we have discovered that some of the students are benefiting from an alternate way of doing division. This method focuses on multiplication and basically multiplying and subtracting to find the answer. Students have been repeatedly presented with both methods this week and are choosing the one that "works" for them. For the students who are choosing the alternate method, please rest assured that over the course of the year, we will be revisiting the standard method of long division. Please view this video for a lesson on the alternate method. It is called chunking because we "chunk" what we know. :)

En matemáticas, los estudiantes van a repasar multiplicación y ampliarán su conocimiento del valor posicional. Además de forma estándar (ej. 21, 456), los estudiantes estarán trabajando para entender y representar números en forma de palabra (veintiuno mil, cuatrocientos cincuenta seis) y forma ampliada (20.000 1.000 400 50 6). Tambien se les ensenara como funciona nuestro modelo de instrucción de matemáticas. Como trabaja el taller pequeño de matemáticas y establecerán los procedimientos y rutinas de la clase.

En la ciencia, estudiantes van a revisar las normas de seguridad de la clase de ciencia y el equipo de ciencias que se utilizará este año durante el aprendizaje.

Esta semana en lectura y lenguaje los estudiantes aprenderán que es el lenguaje figurado. Ellos entenderán que el lenguaje figurado tiene varias interpretaciones y significados por palabras que crean imágenes y figuras retoricas a diferencia del lenguaje literal. El enfoque será la diferencia de un símil y una metáfora. El lenguaje figurado se usara como un puente hacia el estudio de la poesía. En el futuro los estudiantes entenderán que el lenguaje figurado permite que el lector haga inferencias y establezca conclusiones mientras la trama de la historia se desarrolla. Además de lenguaje figurado, los alumnos desarrollarán su comprensión a través del proceso de lectura utilizando conexiones, entendimientos, preguntas, vocabulario, trama y haciendo inferencias. En el estudio de lenguaje los estudiantes revisarán lo que es un sustantivo común frente a un nombre propio.

En estudios sociales los estudiantes del cuarto grado van a continuar con el desarrollo de cómo usar y leer un mapa. Ellos entenderán que un mapa tiene estos componentes:
