This week students had an opportunity to familiarize themselves with their reading environment. Students discussed silent reading norms, went over flexible seating expectations, and explored our classroom library where they shopped for multiple books to fill their book boxes. Our main area of focus this week was to build stamina while Mrs. Hauser met with students to assess where their "just right" reading levels were.
This week students were given a writing assessment in which their only directions were to tell Mrs. Hauser a story. Students spend multiple days working on their writing pieces, and even had an opportunity to share them with a small group of classmates before turing them in.
Next week, we will begin our PYP unit of inquiry: Who We Are. The central idea of our unit is that people bring their cultural and personal beliefs to a community of learners. Students will be sent home with a homework assignment that involves talking to their families about what their values are. On Tuesday, the 18th students will bring in a picture of something that reflects one of their family values.
Back To School Night
Thank you so much to those that attended BTSN on Thursday! It was great getting to see so many familiar faces, and get an overview of what 4th grade is going to look like this year. I appreciate those of you who signed up to become a mystery guest speaker or parent volunteer, and I will be in contact with you soon.
