    Focus Writing Standard(s):

    LAFS.4.W.1.3 - Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences. a. Orient the reader by establishing a situation and introducing a narrator and/or characters; organize an event sequence that unfolds naturally. b. Use dialogue and description to develop experiences and events or show the responses of characters to situations. c. Use a variety of transitional words and phrases to manage the sequence of events. d. Use concrete words and phrases and sensory details to convey experiences and events precisely. e. Provide a conclusion that follows from the narrated experiences or events. (DOK 3)

    LAFS.4.W.2.4 - Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience. (Grade-specific expectations for writing types are defined in standards 1–3 above.) (DOK 3)  

    LAFS.4.W.2.5 - With guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, and editing. (DOK 3)

    Math: 4th Quarter Skills

    Focus Standard(s):

    MAFS.4.MD.3.5- Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement: a. An angle is measured with reference to a circle with its center at the common endpoint of the rays, by considering the fraction of the circular arc between the points where the two rays intersect the circle. An angle that turns through 1/360 of a circle is called a “onedegree angle,” and can be used to measure angles. b. An angle that turns through n one-degree angles is said to have an angle measure of n degrees. (DOK 1)

    MAFS.4.MD.3.6- Measure angles in whole-number degrees using a protractor. Sketch angles of specified measure. (DOK 2)

    MAFS.4.MD.3.7- Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure. (DOK 2)
