Answer Key

Synthesizing Information: Writing an Apprentice Wanted Ad

Fourth graders view examples of help-wanted ads as they plan and create their own writing in the fourteenth lesson of this unit on colonial trade. The engagement of the class is captured when the teacher shares an actual help-wanted ad for an apprentice printed during colonial times. Learners then analyze a piece of included sample writing as they form a clear understanding of the expectations for their work. Next, young scholars plan their writing using previous research and a graphic organizer before finally writing their own help-wanted ad. A lesson that engages and supports students as they pull together all the research and work they have done in this unit to create a piece of original writing.

On-Demand Assessment: Writing of an Information Paragraph About How a Bullfrog Survives

Having read and discussed Bullfrog at Magnolia Circle, third graders demonstrate their bullfrog expertise by writing informational paragraphs. Building on the note-taking and paragraph planning from the previous lesson, learners create writing with a topic sentence, supporting details, and concluding sentence while focusing on carefully choosing words for effect. Following completion of the assessment, children read their writing aloud in small groups before working collaboratively to create and act out short skits about bullfrogs. Though designed as a writing assessment, the resource also addresses students' comprehension of an informational text.

End of Unit Assessment: On-Demand Paragraph Writing

In a two-part lesson, fourth graders are first assessed on their ability to produce an explanatory paragraph and then participate in a gallery walk, presenting their final constitution paragraphs to their peers. To start, learners write a paragraph explaining how their class constitution solves one of several issues described in a bar graph about bullying. Next, a gallery walk is held in which the class reads and posts comments on each others' writing. As a conclusion to the unit, the lesson nicely summarizes and celebrates the development young scholars have made as young writers.
