Your reading assignments count for Book It!
We will continue to do many written exercises throughput the year to reinforce reading strategies & skills.
(prediction, context clues, visualizing, inferences, & vocabulary)
Students will be given a short creative writing assignment each week. Assignments are due the following Monday. These short essays are designed to help with writing fluency and overall basic mechanics. Writing on various topics will help your child to discover their unique narrative voice in addition to practicing a format using an introduction, body of supporting details, and a closing.
Lesson #73 (odd numbers)
The fourth grade students will start their state reports next week with the help of Mrs. Kuehl who taught fourth grade at St. Stan's, but has since retired. Mrs. Kuehl will join our class each week to provide a new lesson. Mrs. Kuehl has a great passion for teaching social studies. The research report will continue throughout the year using short assignments. At the end of the school year, all information and assignments are gathered into one book report.
They are truly a beautiful sight!
