    Inquiry-Based Learning

    Community Reads

    During the month of May, Fourth Grade students are reviewing targeted standards specific to their grade level. Lessons are centered around both literature and informational text. Student will apply strategies learned throughout the year as they engage in activities connected to what an author says (key ideas and details), how an author says it (craft and structure), and the interpretation of what the author says (integration of knowledge and ideas). Weekly lessons may include research and inquiry projects, novel and author studies,  or technology-based projects. Students are sharing their creativity and promoting what they have been learning through a variety of activities designed by the classroom teacher.

    •  Ask your child to describe the difference between an informational text and a literary text.

      • Informational text - nonfiction (Examples: true stories, articles, biographies, first-hand journals, "how to" books)
      • Literary text - fiction (Examples: make-believe, fantasy, poems, plays, bursery rhymes)

    • What is the main idea of the text and how do the details of the text support the main idea? (LAFS.4.RI.1.2)

     

    • What is the main problem described in the text? Why is it a problem? (LAFS.4.RI.1.3)

     

    Using a literary text your child is reading, ask your child the following questions connected to key ideas and details:
