Mrs. Cuccio – Grade 4 – Week of 11/14/16

This week in Math the 4th Graders will continue to:

Use multiplication properties, learn about special factors and patterns, explore multiplication models, estimate and multiply whole numbers and money, and solve problems by working backward.

This week in Science the Fourth Graders will:

The Big Idea: Living things inherit traits, grow, and develop according to life cycles.

Essential Questions:
Lesson 1: What Is Heredity? The students will observe inherited characteristics, describe how traits are inherited, and describe how traits develop.

Lesson 2: What Are Some Life Cycles of Plants? The students will observe how seeds germinate, describe the stages in the life cycle of flowering plants, and describe how plants reproduce using only spores.

Lesson 3: What Are Some Life Cycles of Animals? The students will order the stages of an animal’s life cycle, describe the stages of an animal’s life cycle, and describe how some animals grow and develop.

TENTATIVE HOMEWORK FOR THE WEEK OF November 14th:
I am noticing the students need to freshen up on their multiplication facts. Please review these daily with your child. It is imperative that they memorize their facts. They will need to be able to recall these facts fluently in order to move on to long division. I have been giving the students 5 minute fact drills daily. Students should spend at least 15 minutes a night reviewing facts. We began with facts 0-3. Once they pass this drill they will move on to facts 0-4 and so on.
