A Big Bite

The first week of 4th grade is over, I can't believe how quickly it went by! I am so proud of how hard everyone has settled into the routines and the great effort demonstrated by all students. So much has happened this week in math, reading and writing, in addition to all of the fun "get to know you," activities. I am hopeful that we will be able to assemble our book bags for Reader's Workshop(RW) next week as we continue the launching unit in RW. Today was our first "Poetry Friday," in writer's workshop, and we learned about bio poems. We read a bio poem by Mrs. Mecklenburg and then wrote our own. After the rough drafts were completed we used the Alpha Smarts to begin final copies. We will post some poems as they are complete. It is going to be a great year!
Thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Bower for signing up to be a follower of the blog, that makes 9! I almost half way to my goal.
Have a great Labor Day Weekend,
Mrs. W
