Frindle Book ReportsOur class is having so much fun creating cereal box book reports. We have finished reading Frindle and are now evaluating, analyzing and applying our learning to a great project. I hope to include pictures to show you some of the finished projects. After the cereal boxes are finished, we will be recording 2 minute commercials trying to sell our new products. Should be loads of fun!

    • Practice Organization In Writing Online
      I've found a fun site that helps students with writing. Our class is working on the trait of Organization. This involves telling your story in sequential order using a beginning, middle and end. It also includes using transitional words like first, next, then and finally. Click on the following link to practice putting a story in order. Sequence of Events

    • Stauffer Farms Movie Made By Students
      When we went on our field trip, students used video cameras and digital cameras to document our trip. Ms. Kent, the district technology teacher, came along to help. Then she came to school for 3 days to help the students create a movie from their trip. It turned out amazing and really shows how much the kids learned. Click the following to see the movie.

    • ESD Practice Writing Assessment This Week
      Starting on Monday, my homeroom will be starting a 3-4 day writing assessment. The kids will have 3 choices to write about, and will go through the writing process to complete a piece to the best of their ability at this time. It will be scored by trained teachers throughout the county and returned to our school. It will give us some good data as to where your child is in relation to writing, and how far we need get by the February State 4th Grade Writing Assessment. In order to pass, they need to have a "4" in Ideas/Content, Organization, Sentence Fluency, and Conventions. You can refer to the scoring guides I sent home on index with your child. Please remember to remind them to EDIT any and all work they do to "Get in the Habit"!

    • Student Teacher
      Miss Jackson will begin her 5 week student teaching experience tomorrow. With my guidance she will plan for all subjects, handle all classroom issues and practice being a teacher. I will be in the building at all times and will check in at lunch time to see how things are going. I'm fully confident she will do an amazing job with our kiddos.

    • Port Blakely Field Trips Photos
      We had an amazing day at Port Blakely learning about sustainable forests. Students enjoyed hunting for bugs, learning to find the age of trees and about types of animals who live in the forest. Thanks to all the parent helpers who volunteered. Here are a few pictures of our trip. Bus Ride Exploring The Forest Studying Sustainability Hiking Age of A Tree Wooly Bear Playing After Lunch

    • SMART Goals
      Each week our fourth grade team meets to work on a SMART goal for the classroom. In the past we've focused on writing goals, which are rich in data for the teacher, but take longer to score and analyze. Our most recent SMART goal is focused on multiplication fluency. We are working toward quick recall of facts because it is essential for application with higher math concepts. Our class has only been working on passing one fact family at a time. With the new SMART goal, the focus will now be to learn all of the facts together. It will be interesting to see if this increases their fluency. Please practice at home nightly and remember that multiplication facts are an essential skill for fourth graders and for the rest of their lives. Here's an excellent site to print out practice pages for use at home. Multiplication Fact Practice Pages
