Transcript of Mrs. Dougherty's Fourth Grade Open House
Welcome to Fourth Grade!
As we are embarking on a new journey with the new Florida Standards, there are many different questions, thoughts and feelings. We are all in the journey together. To help navigate this journey we need to maintain a partnership! Our students need our support to be united!
Thank you for coming here tonight to begin this adventure!
Challenges for Fourth Grade
Math Curriculum from Engage New York
Reading and Writing Workshop Model
New Assessments from the State (Florida Standards Assessments)
In each unit of study our students will be working within a scale of skills that need to be mastered. The goal is to achieve a level three or higher to be on grade level.
A Pep Talk for all of us
Engage NY links: http://www.engageny.org/resource/grade-4-mathematics-module-1
PowerPoint available to be sent home for each Engage NY lesson.

Homework help on Tuesday and Thursday morning from 7:30-7:55
English Language Arts
Students will bring home study guides and classwork before any assessments.
The focus will be on your child as a reader and a writer and developing successful habits that will stay with them their entire lives.
Science and social studies will be blended into the ELA block.
Fourth Grade Assessments
FSA: Fourth Grade students will take assessments in ELA, including writing and mathematics
Progress Monitoring: FAIR-FS, NWEA, STAR Reading and Math, and Reading Running Records
Classroom Quizzes/Assessments: Cold Read Quizzes, Vocabulary Quizzes, Topic Quizzes, Mid-Unit Assessments, Unit Assessments, etc.
Level 1 on the Scale
This is when students need assistance to be successful understanding the foundational content needed to achieve their learning goal.
Level 2 on the scale
This is the foundational content that each student needs to understand in order to achieve the learning goal. If a student does not have these foundational skills they may not be able to master the level three content.
Level 3 on the scale
This is our learning goal! In order for students to be on grade level, each student needs to master these skills and be able to apply them.
Level 4 on the scale
When a student reaches a level four on the scale they are able to extend their thinking beyond the application in class. In everyday situations they can apply and evaluate this knowledge.
