Writing-

Unit: Realistic Fiction

Skills: 

  1. Brainstorming ideas for our realistic stories
  2. Character traits (internal and external)
  3. Creating our characters

We are moving into our new writing unit which will involve everything that was learned in our personal narrative unit. Our class will begin to craft their own fiction stories using realistic story elements.

Math Weekly Objectives

4th Grade-

Unit: Multiplicative Comparisons & Strategies Unit

Standards: 4.OA.1, 4.OA.2, 4.NBT.5

4.OA.A.1

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.

4.OA.A.2

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.

4.NBT.B.5

Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

Learning Objectives: 

I can compare two numbers using a multiplication equation.

I can use drawings and equations to identify the missing factor or product in multiplicative comparison problems.

I can solve 1-digit by 2-digit multiplication expressions by decomposing and multiplying factors in area models.

 

Vocabulary:

Compare, factor, product, equation, equivalent, decompose, area model/ open array, partial product, expanded form, standard form, word form, base-ten form

5th Grade-

Unit: Division

Standards:

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.

Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

Learning Objectives

Consider division as determining the number of items in each group when the whole amount is known and the number of groups are known (partitive division

Develop division strategies, such as using the distributive property and subtraction

Organize their strategies through the introduction of the flexible division algorithm
