What's happening....

I'm starting a new blog post each week to inform my followers about what I am teaching for the week. As I see interest in my posts I will add extra resources for teachers to gather more information to help support their lessons. If you are a fourth grade teacher be prepared to buckle your seat belt and prepare for resources a plenty. I will post the topics I am covering and a link to my TPT store to show products that I sale that pertain to the current topics I am covering. Also get ready for a sale each week on products that are useful for each particular lesson. 

For this week I am teaching:

Common Core: Numbers in Base Ten: Division

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. 

Common Core: Measurement and Data: Perimeter and Area

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.

Events, Procedure, Ideas and Concepts
Explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text, including what happened and why, based on specific information in the text.

  2. Use common, grade-appropriate Greek and Latin affixes and roots as clues to the meaning of a word (e.g., telegraph, photograph, autograph).
  3. Consult reference materials (e.g., dictionaries, glossaries, thesauruses), both print and digital, to find the pronunciation and determine or clarify the precise meaning of key words and phrases.
