November: What is Grade Four studying?
ELA
Module 2:
Essential Question: How do people and animals use their senses to navigate the world
Unit Summary:
In this module, students will listen to, read and view a variety of texts and media that present them with information about the five senses.
Students will be provided with opportunities to identify central ideas, text and graphic features and media techniques in order to better understand unfamiliar texts.
Students will use newly acquired vocabulary expressly.
Unit Goals:
 Central Idea
 Summarize
 Text and Graphic Features
 Text Structure
 ContentArea Words
 Ask and Answer Questions
 Media Techniques
 Figurative Language
 Visualize
 Plot
 Author’ Craft
Writing:
We will be working on taking an informational piece through the writing process.
Drawing attention to important details in different ways, such as through headings, images, captions and text structures.
Our focus statement is “Amazing creatures live in this world.”
Eureka Math:
Module 3: MultiDigit Multiplication and Division
Students will...
 solve multiplicative comparison word problems
 multiply by multiples of 10, 100, and 1,000
 multiply three and four digit numbers
 solve multiplication and division word problems
 understand and solve twodigit dividend division problems
 explain remainders
Common Core Learning Standards:
4.MD.C.3  Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.
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.OA.A.3  Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having wholenumber 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.
4.OA.B.4  Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1100. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1100 is a multiple of a given onedigit number. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1100 is prime or composite.
4.NBT.B.5  Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a onedigit whole number, and multiply two twodigit 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.
4.NBT.B.6  Find wholenumber quotients and remainders with up to fourdigit dividends and onedigit 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.
