11/12-11/16

READING: Fourth grade wrapped up making inferences/drawing conclusions in fiction text this week. We will continue with this skill while focusing on nonfiction text next week! This week we looked at a variety of texts, including our guided reading books, to make inferences about the characters and story plots. Fifth grade continued to look at text structure. With our short week next week, this will roll over into Monday and Tuesday as well. We will take a reading summative assessment on the computer in both fourth and fifth on Monday.

WRITING: We are wrapping up our traditions writing book project! Students have worked so hard to create a book that a reader would want to read. We brainstormed a variety of topics and got to hone in on what really makes a tradition. While some traditions are more elaborate, others are the simple things we do weekly, monthly, or annually with the people that are important to us. With the holiday season among us, I am definitely excited to see how our books turn out. I sent home order forms this week. If you are interested in ordering, please do so!! I am sure that this will be something special for each student to have. If you are not interested in ordering, I completely understand! Your child’s work will still be published as long as you turn in the order form with the box checked YES or NO! 🙂 Thank you for your support on this!!

SOCIAL STUDIES: Fourth grade is wrapping up our Jamestown standard. We will finish up by identifying the importance of the General Assembly (1619) as the first representative legislative body in English America, identifying the impact of the arrival of Africans and English women to the Jamestown settlement, describing the hardships faced by settlers at Jamestown and the changes that took place to ensure survival, and describing the interactions between the English settlers and the native peoples, including the role of the Powhatan in the survival of the settlers. While it was our hope to get this covered before Thanksgiving break, it looks like this will roll over until after break! Look for a study guide to come home after break. Here is a link to help you study if you want to study during any travel/down time! 🙂 Also — The students really enjoy this song about Jamestown!!  Fifth grade is starting our look into the regions! We will start with the southeast!

Quarter one is done! This year is flying by so quickly. It is always incredible at this time of year to stop and think about how far we have come and realize that we still have so much time left to enjoy!!

Thank you SO MUCH to all of the families that made the time to come out and see Ms. Poland and I for conferences over the past few weeks. We realize everyone is busy with work and/or family obligations, but we really do appreciate getting to know each of you. Spending some time face-to-face discussing the incredible things our students have done is invaluable to us and to our students!

In Reading, fourth grade learned how to draw conclusions/make inferences in a fiction text. Inferences are educated guesses about something from a text where students will need to use their prior knowledge and clues from the text. Conclusions are judgments or a decisions that is made after reading a text. The students enjoyed reading books like How I Saved My Parents From Green Beans and The Strange Case of Origami Yoda to make inferences and draw conclusions. Fifth grade started looking at TEXT STRUCTURE. This is a fundamental standard that will come up again and again. It is also often seen on reading assessments! Text structure refers to how the author organized the text to help convey his/her message to the reader. There are five main organizational patterns that we will look at: chronological order/sequence, description, problem/solution, cause/effect, and compare/contrast. While not every text has a clear structure, we are looking at what key words we can identify to help us determine the main structure of the text.

In writing, both groups are working on making a class book of our writing. These will go out to be published on November 23rd. More details will come home soon if you are interested in ordering a copy as well. Students are writing about their favorite holiday traditions. I have loved getting to hear about the unique and fun things that families do together.

In social studies, fifth grade wrapped up Henrico History by presenting our advertising projects. Fourth grade is in the middle of our Jamestown unit. We took our quiz on standard VS3 a-c! This covered reasons for colonization, why they chose Jamestown, and the charters. The students really enjoy this song about Jamestown!!

10/29-11/2


I cant believe it is already November! This week we had a lot of big fun, but it did not keep us from getting some great learning done!

In reading, fourth grade wrapped up author’s purpose. We discussed the different reasons authors write (persuade, inform, entertain, explain, or describe). We looked at different texts that were explicitly chosen to teach each skill and then discussed how we can determine the author’s purpose for text in everyday life. Fifth grade worked on roots and affixes! We challenged each other to come up with new words.

In writing, we wrapped up our spooky writing!! Students used the five senses to incorporate precise details to help readers imagine the setting and plot of the story. Fourth grade writing is displayed in the hall if you have time to check it!

In social studies, fourth grade started digging deeper into the settlement of Jamestown— we looked at the motives and charters. Next week we will continue with a look into the House of Burgesses and how the early form of government worked and didn’t work with a role playing activity. Check out this site: http://www.solpass.org/z-site/va/Games/columns-jamestown/framepage.php?section=study-3

Just want to start off by saying our trip to JAMESTOWN and YORKTOWN was awesome!! I am so proud of how well our class handled the long day. They were polite, attentive, and asked so many awesome questions. I would also like to give a HUGE, HUGE thank you to our awesome parent chaperones. I could not have done it without you all!!  I posted a bunch of pictures to our class instagram (@msfourthandfifth) but am working on getting them posted here too!

In reading, fourth grade students continued to learn about author’s purpose in fiction texts. While students listened to fiction read alouds, we discussed how to look at the author’s words and phrases as well as the characters, setting, and what is happening in the story to identify the author’s purpose. Students are continuing to practice answering question stems and work in their guided reading groups daily. Fifth grade students continued to work on summarizing and main idea.
In writing, fourth and fifth grade students both continued to work on narrative writing of spooky stories. We talked about using the five senses to describe a setting and worked together to develop some really descriptive plot lines. We will get this published and ready this week!

In social studies, fourth grade just started a new unit focusing on Jamestown as the first permanent settlement. We will be discussing the reasons for English Colonization, the 4 reasons of why the Jamestown settlement site was chosen and the importance of the charters.

WEEK 7: 10/15-10/19

THIS WEEK IN READING: In fourth grade we focused on  annotating the text and why readers annotate. We discussed that annotation makes the reader an active participant in the flow of the text. Annotation includes adding purposeful notes, key words and phrases, definitions, and connections. Annotating text promotes student interest in reading and gives learners a focused purpose for writing. This is something we will keep doing ALL YEAR!  In fifth grade we wrapped up our work on character traits by working in groups to analyze the main character in our class text, Restart, while also analyzing the individual character in each of our books. Students had to back up particular traits with evidence including the characters actions and dialogue. This was a little tricky for them so we will keep working on it. We discussed why saying the character seemed mean was not enough and they need to be able to tell me HOW THEY KNOW the character is conniving, kind, thrill-seeking, etc. based on what the character did, said, felt and thought.

THIS WEEK IN WRITING: This week in writing both classes focused on using the five senses to add details and descriptive ideas to their writing. We will continue working on this next week with fall/spooky stories! Students came up with some great descriptions of dark forests, spooky houses, and abandoned theme parks! I can’t wait to read the final stories after we add the characters/plot!

THIS WEEK IN SOCIAL STUDIES: In fourth grade we are wrapping up our work in Virginia geography with a project about the regions to synthesize all we have learned. Student groups were each assigned a region and they had to research and write a rap describing that region to the class. They started creating their own beats on www.incredibox.com and will get to present their rap next week. We will also create a 3D Salt Dough map to represent the regions with particular attention to theirs. TOMORROW WE GO TO JAMESTOWN! Fifth grade finally got to start working on their Advertising Executive Project! Students could work independently or with a partner to choose a company they want to persuade to relocate to Henrico!

NEXT WEEK IN READING: Fourth grade will focus on authors purpose and how to use their own background knowledge to connect or make inferences with a text. Fifth grade will focus on locating information to support opinions, predictions, and conclusions while also reviewing summarizing and main idea!
NEXT WEEK IN WRITING: We will continue to focus on our narrative spooky stories while tying in our work with plot/characters/setting and choosing precise language!
NEXT WEEK IN SOCIAL STUDIES: Fourth grade will move on to our focus on Jamestown while fifth grade will continue to wrap up Henrico history and take a closer look at the economic developments the county has made over time!

Please sign up for a fall conference time that works for you! 🙂 Let us know if you have any questions either by Remind or email! We look forward to meeting with each of you!

WEEK 6: 10/9-10/11

Wow! Another week in the books!

THIS WEEK IN READING:
4: Students worked on strategies to identify unknown words in the text using context clues. We discussed different strategies and started reading a History Mystery called “The Mary Celeste” that had a lot of challenging vocabulary for us to discuss. In small groups, we discussed how to restate the question when we are answering and to use evidence from the text. We will continue this next week!
5: We worked on character traits! Students worked to identify character traits of characters they already knew (Harry Potter and Darth Vader) while also looking at characters in our texts that they are getting to know. We focused on being able to back up those traits based on things the characters think, feel, say or do.

THIS WEEK IN WRITING:
4: We focused on subject/verb agreement and took a closer look at capitalization rules. I realized many of us were making mistakes about proper and common nouns and now we should be experts!
5: We focused on possessive nouns and contractions. Students worked to differentiate the difference between them and decide when and where an apostrophe was needed!

SOCIAL STUDIES
4: Students took a quiz covering the different native american groups and their locations and languages this week and they ROCKED IT! I am so proud of them. We had scheduled salt dough maps for today (Friday 10/12) to show off what we learned about the regions, rivers, and language groups so far but with the surprise weather interruption we will have to reschedule for next week!
5: We continued our research to prep us for our Henrico Project Proposal projects. Next week students will work as advertising executives working for Henrico County, who is trying to draw in new business. There are lots of great reasons to locate a business in Henrico, but they need help to showcase and convince the companies. They are trying to convince a new company to relocate their business to somewhere within the boundaries of Henrico.

NEXT WEEK
READING:
4: We will continue working on using the text to answer questions and show evidence of our answers. Students will also be able to describe how the choice of language, setting, characters, details, and other information contribute to the author’s purpose
5: We will continue looking at character traits while also starting our study of nonfiction text features.

WRITING:
4: Students will work on recognize that different modes of writing have different patterns of organization. We are going to hone in our focus on the narrative. We will look at different graphic organizers and how to best organize our ideas before starting a writing prompt.
5: The students will write for a variety of purposes: to describe and to entertain. We will look at how the audience determines the type of writing we do and what makes each type of writing unique. The students will also continue to edit writing for correct grammar, capitalization, spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, and paragraphing.

SOCIAL STUDIES
4: We will continue to review what we have learned so far about Virginia’s regions, rivers, language groups, and climate in review for a summative test.
5: We will continue our study of Henrico County by looking at geography, history, economy, government, and the school system. Students will work as advertising executives working for Henrico County, who is trying to draw in new business. There are lots of great reasons to locate a business in Henrico, but they need help to showcase and convince the companies. They are trying to convince a new company to relocate their business to somewhere within the boundaries of Henrico. We will also have a lesson with Mr. Clough! 🙂

WEEK 5: 10/1-10/5

Happy October!

This week in fourth grade we worked on nonfiction text features. Students identified them in nonfiction texts, discussed them in small group, and are working to create their very own nonfiction text after choosing a topic and doing some research. Ask them to tell you about text features at home. For a review, check out this video!

In VA studies we continued learning about Virginia’s regions, rivers, and native peoples. Students will have a quiz on WEDNESDAY of next week (OCT 10). Study guides came home today!

In fifth grade we focused on Main Idea! We discussed which strategies students could use the determine the main idea. For example, looking at headings and pictures, ask yourself “what is the text mostly about?”, looking at the first or last sentence, and seeing what words are used repeatedly. We really focused on the difference between TOPIC and MAIN IDEA. The topic is one word that would describe the text while the main idea explains what it is mostly about. Next week we will continue our study of story elements by looking at characterization and we will introduce text features. To review main idea– check out this review game. In history, students continued to study the history of Henrico County and we also discussed surrounding counties and which regions our county falls into.

In writing with fourth and fifth grade writing we continued with mentor sentence. I wanted to take a moment and explain this! This is a system I use in my classroom to look at different texts and use it to influence our own writing. On Monday’s we look at a sentence I have pulled from a book. This lets us analyze authentic text that we are reading. Next week I will pull sentences from our individual class read alouds. On Mondays students notice what makes this sentence unique or special– maybe it is compound, maybe it has a lot of adjectives, maybe it has an interjection or dialogue. On Tuesday we label the parts of speech. This works as a quick review to spiral those language skills! We have been focusing on the basics (nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs), but as the year progresses we will add others that we learn like prepositions or conjunctions. On Wednesday we revise the authors sentence to make it “better”. We do this by adding more adjectives to make it detailed or using synonyms to make words more juicy. On Thursday, students imitate the authors sentence with their own writing. We focus on what they noticed about the sentence on Monday and try to imitate it on their own. Students are so proud to share and they really have become great at taking on the writer’s style. Each day as we wrap up mentor sentence, we discuss how to apply these strategies to our writing and wrap these ideas into each grade’s writing lesson/objective for the week. All in all this process takes less than 10 minutes each day but I have seen amazing results from using it! Here is an example of another teacher doing this with her class.  We will use the skills we worked on during mentor sentence this week and next week as we continue writing our personal narratives.

NEXT WEEK IN FOURTH:
READING: Annotating the text as we read and showing our evidence! This is an important skill that students will use FOREVER!
WRITING/ENGLISH: Personal narratives with a focus on capitalization and writing a good topic sentence.
VA STUDIES: Quiz Wednesday on Virginia’s native peoples. Study guide should be in grey folder! Here is a copy! 

NEXT WEEK IN FIFTH:
READING: Character traits/characterization/how a character changes throughout a text and nonfiction text features!
WRITING/ENGLISH: We will look at authors purpose as we continue to focus on our personal narratives.
SS: Continue our study of Henrico County by talking about water features of Henrico and the climate in different seasons.

HAPPY LONG WEEKEND! SEE YOU TUESDAY!

WEEK 4: 9/24-9/28

It is hard to believe we have almost been in school for a month! We are really getting into our groove!

In reading, fourth grade has been focusing on determining the  main idea and supporting details as well as looking at nonfiction text features. While at home, you can work on both of these by checking out any nonfiction texts and noticing the text features (charts, captions, graphs, bold words, glossary, etc.). It really helps for students to see this “in action” in real-life situations versus in isolation or in books I have picked out for them. I love when the learning connects with activities at home. If you happen to read a book with some text features this week or weekend, send me a picture of it on Remind! Next week we will continue our study of text features and focus on using the text to answer questions. While this might be a skill students are (or should be) familiar with, we will talk about how annotating the text and digging for those clues while reading helps them to understand the text on a deeper level and showing your evidence in the text proves your answer. To review main idea– check out this review game.

Fifth grade has been working on plot! This was a big standard to unpack as we covered setting, characters, conflict, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. We wrapped up the week by talking about the four different types of conflict and students brainstormed types of conflict that fit into the categories (character vs character, character vs self, character vs nature, and character vs society). Some of these were more difficult than others! See what they remember! Next week we will focus on summarizing! We have already been working on this bit by bit when talking about plot so this should be an easy transition.

Fourth grade focused on reviewing the border states, learning about the regions, and exploring the bodies of water in Virginia studies this week. Next week we will continue to review rivers, discuss native american groups (locations and languages) and how the climate/land affected their lives. We plan to have a quiz on Friday but I will make an announcement via remind as we get closer. I want to make sure students are confident and we have had enough time to learn the material. I will send interactive notebooks home with students to study as part of their homework next week! Check out this website from Virginia Trekkers to practice (some skills we have covered, some we will cover next week)!

Fifth grade is wrapping up Henrico geography with a brief research project. They are looking at significant land/water features, climate information, and events in Henrico county history. Once we have done our research, we are going to start an in-class project where students will work as advertising executives trying to draw in new businesses and convince large companies (ie Amazon, Walmart, Target) of their choosing to relocate their business headquarters within the boundaries of Henrico County! Stay tuned for more details.

In writing– both fourth and fifth grade are working on writing personal narratives. We talked about choosing a “SMALL SEED” moment from their lives and have focused so far on having a catchy lead and writing our introduction paragraphs. We will continue these next week and focus on transitions, revising and editing, and publishing. We will also tie in our daily writing lessons depending on the grade.

Check our my instagram @MsFourthandFifth for a peek into our week!

WEEK 3: 9/17-9/21

We had an awesome (almost full) week of school!

Fifth grade spent this week finishing up making connections with the text and looking at parts of plot including characters, setting, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. We read a short text and students helped to identify the parts of plot and students worked together to create a “plot mountain” about a short video we watched! Next week we will continue to look at plot while shifting our focus to summarizing! We will also continue our study of Henrico Geography and how it has impacted it’s inhabitants throughout the years.

Fourth grade had an awesome week learning about main idea. We also spent some time focusing on text structure– specifically problem and solution. As the year continues we will learn about other structures. We also had a focus on synonyms and antonyms and how they make our writing better. Next week we will focus on nonfiction text and specially text features. How do those features help us understand or connect with the text more? What would the text be like without them? We will continue our study of the regions of Virginia and look at the different Native American groups and their languages, and bodies of water!

Next week we will continue with our small seed writing. Today fourth grade students brainstormed important events that happened in their life (WATERMELON) and we broke down those events into smaller chunks (PIECES OF WATERMELON) and then chose a single part to write about (SEED)! Fifth grade was MAP testing today so they will get started next week! For example, my watermelon would be fourth grade, a slice might be field day, and my small seed would be the tug-of-war. We will really be focusing our writing on using descriptions to get readers to feel like they were there too!

STEAM DAY was a blast! Students worked in groups to work design, produce and use weather instruments. Once they had built their instrument, students worked together to write a script and prepare to film a weather broadcast using their tool and the information they have gathered. We look forward to those finished products!

To check out pictures from STEAM DAY and other activities in class, please follow my classroom instagram @MSFOURTHANDFIFTH . Have a great weekend!
