A Big Bite

Our first full week was great! We had Len Cabral tells us stories as a celebration of summer reading.  Ask your child about the story, "Shoulddo."  We have been writing all of our hopes and dreams for fourth grade in writer's workshop and writing bio poems in poetry workshop.  Developing routines in reader's workshop has been our focus and will continue to be for the next few weeks.  We also had two great book talks, one individual and one team talk.  We have had several people sign up and are ready to talk about great books next week.  The place value test is complete and the effort was wonderful; great job by everyone, we learned so much!  Creative Arts Friday continues to be a fan favorite this week.  Ask your child about their experience.  Another focus this past week has been  on working cooperatively in groups in preparation for all of the group work that we will do this year.  Our first project kicks off next week with a presentation on the Engineering Process by former FPS students and current engineers.  It will be so much fun!  Ask your child about the many ways we have been preparing to work in cooperative groups.  Science and Social Studies get underway next week, in addition to word study.  All of the pieces are coming together for a great year with this group of learners!  Ask your child to tell you all about the pictures below; they show many highlights from our week.  Don't forget to check out the 4th grade team blog, "4th grade News," in the gadget on the right to find out all about the 4th grade community. Thanks to Mrs. Merten for writing this week's post!
