5 4th Grade - August/September RL1 and RI1 were selected for the beginning of the year to ensure student proficiency in literal comprehension. Once literal comprehension is concrete students will have the foundation to begin using evidence from text to form inferences and deepen their understanding of characters in literary texts. Rationale for Standards Placement Narrative writing is generally the easiest form of writing for students because it is based on their personal experiences, which is one reason it has been selected as the first writing unit. The second reason it has been chosen is due to the types of literary texts we select at the beginning of the year to build classroom community, to form concrete literal retell, and to begin introducing character traits make excellent mentor texts for writer s workshop. The sub standards under language were selected based on those that best connected with narrative writing and what an entering fourth grade student has been taught in earlier grades. If they are weak in forming complete sentences, knowing when to use capitalization, and/or knowing when to use quotation marks around dialogue, they will be remediated and then held accountable for using these grammar skills proficiently in future writings. RL4 and RI 4 are on-going standards; however, taking time to teach students vocabulary strategies at the beginning of the school year will provide students with a foundation for vocabulary growth. Reading Mini-Lesson or Guided Reading Notes Standards RL1/ RI1 and RL10/RI10 are intended to be reinforced all year during the reading of both literature and informational text. RL1and RI1 are ongoing because every thought we form about what we read must be based on information we gain from the text. To establish routines and procedures for reader s workshop it is recommended to start the school year with lessons from the First 20 Days. (Guiding Readers and Writers Grades 3-6 by Fountas and Pinnell Pgs ) During the first few weeks of school it is critical to establish the structure and routines for a reading workshop with an emphasis being placed on the development of a strong independent reading time. Students are expected to read with increasing stamina and volume throughout the year with both literature and informational texts. Student reading behaviors will need to be observed and monitored to ensure all students are selecting just right books and are engaged during independent reading. It is critical for teachers to confer with students who need assistance in understanding their role during independent reading. This work will make independent reading a powerful foundation for their growth as readers in fourth grade. Embed During IRA: 5 Finger Retell Somebody Wanted But So Green Level Questions (Allow students to form and ask green level questions with talk partners.) VIP External Who is the most important character? What was this characters most important action? (Richardson, p ) Begin Introducing Character Traits (Richardson, p ) Genre Study Taught throughout the entire school year during IRA. Teacher selects genre (folktale, fables, myth, etc.) and focuses on the genre for multiple days. Ask students to share what they notice about the text. Create an anchor chart to record characteristics students notice for each genre as they are introduced/taught.

6 Comprehension Strategies: Prior to moving into an inference focus remediate students weak in literal comprehension as needed in small group. This information should be gathered through observation of students during IRA and QRI assessments. Literary Inferences 2 Column Notes: In the Book / In My Head Speaker Tags (Richardson, p. 231) Dialogue (Richardson, p. 231) Character s Action and Interactions (Richardson, p ) Physical Descriptions (Richardson, p. 234 Inner Thoughts (Richardson, p. 235) IMPORTANT: All inferences need to begin with text clues before using background knowledge. Informational Inferences Infer using Headings and Titles Infer Meaning, Comprehension Toolkit, p.39 Red Level Question Three Column Notes Fact Question Inference (Richardson, p. 214) 2 Column Notes: If.Fact and Then Inference IMPORTANT: All inferences need to begin with text clues before using background knowledge. Vocabulary: Strategies to gain meaning of unknown words (Richardson, p and 288) Emphasize vocabulary during IRA throughout the entire year and during guided reading. Raising the Quality of Narrative Writing (Lucy) Performance Assessment - Prior to starting each unit use the following steps: 1. Give students an on-demand writing prompt that matches the style of writing to be taught in the upcoming unit to gain information on where to begin your instruction. 2. Collect entries and evaluate them according to Calkins Continuum found at the website below: 3. Sort entries into levels Which level has the most entries? 4. Plan your whole group teaching to the next level. Example: If a majority of the class performed at a level 5 then you would begin instruction at a level Remediate / Accelerate students that fall below or above the level selected for whole group instruction in small guided writing groups. Writing Architecture of a Writing Conference (5 minutes) 1. Research What are you working on as a writer? Show me where you are doing that? If there is no evidence,..do you want me to show you how.? 2. Compliment I love that you are (craft move) because. 3. Decide what would be most beneficial to the student as a writer and teach. Model writing strategy within your own writing OR explain a writing strategy and provide students with an example using a mentor text. 4.

10 4th Grade - October Rationale for Standards Placement Reading Mini-Lesson or Guided Reading Notes During our August and September unit we began inferring and identifying character traits so it seems natural to continue deepening student understanding of literary texts through analyzing all story elements at a literal and inferential level. During this deepening of literary comprehension, we felt it would be an appropriate place to introduce drama structural elements and make connections between literary texts. We will also begin analyzing the point of view of multiple literary texts to see how they are similar and different since it again flows well with a literary unit. Personal essays were chosen as the writing unit focus because it will create the organization foundation needed to write a persuasive essay in the following writing unit. In addition to students using mechanics in writing correctly, we have selected L2d to ensure proficiency in using reference materials to locate appropriate spelling and word usage. L2c was selected to teach students to use various sentence structures in their writing. Review Literary Inference (As Needed) - Inference Cards (Richardson, p.235) Character/Event Analysis VIP Internal character s feelings, including conflicts (Richardson, p. 216) Who has the problem?

14 4th Grade - November/December After deepening students understanding of literary story elements, it will be important for the students to be able to sift through the details they use to analyze story elements to determine the main idea and create short summaries of the stories they read. Forming informational main idea statements and summaries has been paired with forming literary main idea statements and summarizing due to the natural fit. Rationale for Standards Placement RL 9 has been added to the mix due to the theme of a story being uncovered when looking at the most important parts of a literary text. Once students are able to identify the theme of a single story we want to push their thinking to the next level by using multiple literary texts to compare and contrast the themes. In writer s workshop students will be working on persuasive writing due to it naturally fitting with main idea and details. Persuasive writing is about choosing a central focus which states you are for or against something and when trying to convince others to think like you must provide details that support your thinking. When writing a persuasive piece, it is important to use correct phrasing to convince the reader which is why language standards 1.c and d were selected. Literary: 2 Column Notes: Important/Interesting Details (Richardson, p. 217) Use important details to create a main idea statement. Use main idea statement to create titles. Summarize (Richardson, p ) Analyze Author s Purpose to Determine Theme (Richardson, p. 217) Compare/Contrast Themes in stories, myths, and traditional literature from different cultures. Reading Mini-Lesson or Guided Reading Notes Informational: Two Column Notes: Classify details as important or interesting how does it relate to the title. (Richardson, p. 217) Two Column Notes: Heading or Subheadings- Use text with headings written as questions. (Richardson, p ) Two Column Notes: Use text without question headings and turn headings into a question and list supporting details in bullet form. 3 Column Notes: Main Idea Question Details Central Idea Statement Identify keywords within supporting details to create a bullet list and form a central idea statement. (Richardson, p.219) Students create title/heading/subheading to represent central idea. Summarize: Students select keywords from details and combine them with the heading to create a summary.

Use direct quotation from text (We will teach them to place quotation marks around info they pull, but not site the source.) Organize information using the essay format taught in the previous writing unit. Reminder: Essay length will vary from student to student. The passage is mostly about What is the main idea of the story What is the central idea of this article? If the article needed a new title, which title would be best?

18 4th Grade - January Rationale for Standards Placement Reading Mini-Lesson or Guided Reading Notes On standardized tests students will be required to analyze poetry. Due to students needing to gain meaning and demonstrate deep levels of comprehension there needs to be a time to focus on poetry. During this focus, poetry structural elements, strategies for understanding the poem s message, and gaining meaning from figurative language will be taught. Comparing/contrasting and making connections have been coupled with this standard due to standardized test sample questions. From the sample test questions we have learned there will be times where students will be required to determine similarities between poetry and literary passages. Literary essays have been placed with the poetry focus due to first semester having a large emphasis on literary text, story elements, themes, etc. Literary essays will bring everything we have already taught in reader s workshop together before we move into a focus on informational texts and writing during second nine weeks. Poetry Analysis Start with one poetry strategy focus and as students become proficient with that focus add additional poetry strategies for analyzing a poem. Start with clarification, add visualization, summarizing, etc. (Richardson, ) *Our goal is to build students to the point where they are able to combine the strategies to analyze poetry stanza by stanza. Compare / Contrast RL.9 Analyze author s purpose to determine theme.. Why did he/she write this? What is the message or lesson? Use Venn Diagram to compare/contrast theme of two poems or a poem and literary text. (Sample Test Item) CCSS Make Connections RL7 Text to Text and Text to World Make connections between two poems or a poem and literary text. (Richardson, p. 208) Literary Essays (Calkins) Performance Assessment (Day 1) - Refer to August Writing Block for Steps Architecture of a Writing Conference Refer to August Notes as Needed Writing Testing as a Genre Resources Literary Essay Writing - Students will need to. Select a theme or character trait evident in multiple literary texts to form a thesis statement. Analyze multiple literary text and record similarities Refer to examples within literary texts to support the thesis Details must support the thesis statement and stay on topic Follow essay organization taught during the previous writing units Reminder: Essays will vary in length. Which of these is an example of a (simile/metaphor, etc.)? In sentence 3, the author uses the words, like a talented artist s paintbrush across a canvas to show that (the character) Based on the poem, the reader can tell that Owl Moon, Yolen Twilight Comes Twice, Fletcher
