Venn Diagrams, Leopard Fur, Function Tables & Topic Sentences

Hello, division 4 families!

In Math today, we practiced determining and creating function rules for “input-output” tables (using adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing). Please note that we will have a quiz on this content and other patterning concepts on Thursday, October 20th. We are doing lots of review in class, and students are encouraged to take their Math duo-tangs home to practice questions and share their learning with their families.

Today in Art, we continued yesterday’s lesson on pencil drawing techniques—this time with the goal to create realistic animal fur, feathers, scales, and skin (specifically leopard fur).

In Language Arts, we went deeper into how to identify and create a topic sentence. We watched a few demonstration videos about this as well.

The students were challenged to transform examples of sentence fragments into creative topic sentences that had proper capitalization, grammar and punctuation.

QUESTION: How would you turn the sentence fragment “the best Saturday ever” into a good topic sentence for a paragraph?

We also learned about Venn Diagrams, which are helping in showing logical relationships. We worked with multiple examples of both two-ringed and three-ringed diagrams.
