November: What is Grade Four studying?
Essential Question: How do people and animals use their senses to navigate the world
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.
- Central Idea
- Text and Graphic Features
- Text Structure
- Content-Area Words
- Ask and Answer Questions
- Media Techniques
- Figurative Language
- Author’ Craft
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.”
Module 3: Multi-Digit Multiplication and Division
- 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 two-digit 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 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.
4.OA.B.4 - 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 composite.
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.
4.NBT.B.6 - 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.
