Reading Literature – 4th Grade

Key Ideas and Details

Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.

Teacher Notes
Drawings and equations help us solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities.
Understanding the context and actions of a story problem helps us to interpret and represent mathematical equations.
