Fourth Grade





Classroom Teacher- Mrs. Roberts

  • Site Principal-Lindy Risenhoover
  • Building Principal-Lynette Talkington

Common Core

  • Oklahoma Academic Standards
  • Jenks Curricula Continua
  • Primary Teaching Tools


  • The Comprehension Toolkit
  • *Focuses on “Reading as Thinking”
  • *Builds key thinking strategies for increased comprehension
  • *Supports time for shared reading, guided reading groups, small groups, independent reading, and collaborative discussions.
  • *Students read a variety of genres.
  • *Matches students with “just right” reading texts.
  • Fountas & Pinnell Word Study
  • *Builds word knowledge through instruction in phonics, spelling patterns, high frequency word knowledge, vocabulary development, and word-solving actions.


  • Everyday Mathematics
  • *Emphasizes conceptual understanding while building a mastery of basic skills.
  • *Relates math to real life situations.
  • *Hands-on activities
  • *Practice through Games
  • *Cooperative learning through partner and small-group activities
  • *Home and School partnership

Mathematics & Common Core

  • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
  • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
  • Model with mathematics.
  • Use appropriate tools strategically.
  • Look for and make use of structure.
  • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Open-Response Problem Solving

Ryan walked past the toy store on Tuesday. He saw some wagons in the window. Ryan counted 20 wheels.

How many wagons did Ryan see in the window? ______________ wagons

Draw or write to explain how you know.


What Math Will Look Like

  • Our third step in the alignment process occurs this school year….we will be using the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics as the basis for teaching and learning.
  • What does that mean for what you will see grade level. coming home or hear being talked about by your child?
  • You’ll see a continued emphasis on the thinking reflected in the mathematical practices.
  • You’ll see weekly work in open-response problem solving.
  • You’ll see continued use of the EDM games….please access these online from home as well.
  • What will be a little different is the focus on units of study….with an opportunity to go deeply into the standards during the unit. In order to do this with the resources of EDM, we are approaching the lessons a little differently. We’ve gathered the lessons from throughout the year that help us teach deeply and thoroughly into the standard (s) of unit 1. So you may see a lesson 2.1 followed by a lesson 3.4, followed by a lesson 4.2. This is because these lessons help us address the standards for the unit and give students the instruction, practice, and thinking opportunities for those standards.
  • We will not lose the spiraling structure of EDM, because we will continue to bring the standards from each unit into the open response problem solving weekly opportunities and into the ongoing fluency expectations for each

Homework is typically given Monday through Thursday evenings. Homework is due the following morning. If a child doesn’t complete daily assignments they may have unfinished work that becomes homework as well. All children should read at least 20 min. each evening. Each Friday, a weekly reading report is due. This is a written response to what they have been reading at home each evening.


Fourth grade uses the Jenks Policy when grading. We use the 3-2-1 scale.

3=85%-100% of the time-consistently successful

2=75-84% of the time-Progressing

1=below 74%-Needs improvement

We grade our papers with the number correct out of the number of problems.

For example : 8/10=80%
