**NON-FICTION WRITING**- Last week you had to find 3-5 URLs (web addresses) that would link to "easy for you to understand" websites on a topic of your own INTEREST. This week, go back into that document you created and click on each link. On your doc, add three facts that EACH website taught you about your topic. Write the facts using your own words. In other words, it is not okay to copy and paste the author's words into your doc. That is kind of like stealing. I recommend trying to sum up one of your sites each day. Also, try not to repeat facts too much although you may see similar facts showing up on each of your websites. Please see the example I have provided in the ELA CLASSROOM. If last weeks assignment was not done, you'll need to complete it before you begin this week's work.

**Week of March 23rd**

## Really nice to do...

Your assignments are posted in the Mathematics Google Classroom and the ELA Google Classroom.

Remember, this work is not being graded. As is always the case in our classroom, you should do your best! We can chat about these concepts on Zoom on Tuesday or Thursday.

**Mathematics**- Please move through a lesson on Equivalent Fractions. We have been informally working with equivalent fractions for weeks now. Begin by watching the two Khan academy videos and the video titled, "Finding Equivalent Fractions with Models and Equations 4.NF.1". Remember, when watching a video, you can pause it to give yourself think time and you can back it up to hear information again. You can watch the videos multiple times.
- Next, grab some construction paper, scissors, and writing tools and follow the steps on the video, "The Coolest Hands-On Fraction Activity Ever!" You can use copy paper if you don't have construction paper. You can even color your paper if you want.
- Once you have made your Fraction Kit, open the document titled "Equivalent Fractions 4.NF.A.1" and use your kit to answer the questions.
- Next, click on the Khan academy practice titled, "Equivalent Fractions, (fraction models) (practice). There are four quiz-type questions there. Try them out. I am not going to be receiving results so no biggie if you get one wrong. Do your best. If you struggle, you can watch videos to help.
- Finally, if everything is going swimmingly and you think you understand equivalent fractions, open the Google Form titled, "Equivalent Fractions" and answer the questions there.

Remember, this work is not being graded. As is always the case in our classroom, you should do your best! We can chat about these concepts on Zoom on Tuesday or Thursday.

**Reading/Writing**- Listen to the recording of Chapters 11-15 this week.
- Then, complete the Google form sharing your thoughts on the reading.
- Join our Zoom meeting on Thursday at noon if your able. We'll discuss Tuck.

## Truly optional...

**Mathematics**

This assignment is truly optional. It is FUN and enriching. We can talk about it in our Zoom meeting if you'd like.

- The PBS site linked offers interactive Cuisenaire Rods that you can manipulate to solve problems very much like the Cuisenaire Rod puzzles that I introduced to the class on our last Friday together.
- You can print out the Cuisenaire Paper and cut out your own set of rods.
- Then, use these rods to work through the problems in the doc titled, "Investigating Equivalent Fractions".

**Writing**

- Think about writing an opinion piece using the format we've been using in school. (Topic sentence, three reasons with examples, concluding sentence.) Think about remote learning and the idea of ASL days. How do you feel about them this week? What are your reasons? What examples can you give to support your reasons?
- Then, in a week or two, write about remote learning and ASL days again. Do you think your opinion will change over time?

Please email me if you have questions about any of this optional work.
