This week, students will be introduced to standard 4.NF.6 and 4.NF.7, and continue working on demonstrating of 4.NF.5 if they have not done so already. They will move on from fractions with denominators of 10 and 100 and explore how to express them in decimal notation before eventually comparing and ordering decimals to the hundredths place. Students who are ready will be taking the NF.5 quiz this week. Some may be taking the NF.6 quiz by the end of the week depending on how they are progressing through their learning ladders.
Tuesday - iReady for 30 minutes
Thursday - iReady for 30 minutes
4.1 Standards for the Week:
4.NF.6 Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.
4.NF.7 Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual model.
4.2-Fifth Grade: Unit 2: Decimal Notation, Rounding, and Adding and Subtracting Decimals
Students took a pre-assessment over the upcoming unit - Decimal Notation, Adding and Subtracting Decimals, and Rounding Decimals. Tomorrow, students will start to receive mini-lessons covering content focusing on decimal notation. For those students who have yet to complete the evidence of mastery for our previous unit, they will need to be working towards mastery of the previous standards before they can move on to this current unit.

4.2 Standards for the Week:
5.NBT.1: Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents ten times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.
5.NBT.3: Read, write, and compare decimals to the thousandths. (a) Read and write decmilas to the thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. (b) Compare two decimals to the thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place using >, <, and = symbols to record the results of comparisons.
5.1-Unit 5: 2D Figures
This week (and part of last week) students began transitioning to their next unit, Unit 5: 2D Figures. As students wrapped up unit 4, they took their pre-assessments for unit 5, and have also received their new learning ladders. The core of this unit has students analyzing various 2D figures and learning all of their attributes. After students have a strong foundation of the attributes of the various 2D figures, students will then compare and contrast the figures, grouping them into sub categories, and ultimately, creating a hierarchy of all 2 dimensional figures.

5.G.3: Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
5.G.4: Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties (polygons, triangles, and quadrilaterals).
