Welcome Class of 2014-2015

Welcome to the Fourth Grade.  Planning on you having a wonderful year of learning with your classmates and me! This blog will provide a "window to our learning" for you, your families, relatives and hopefully many others.  (What I love about this blog is that you and your families can leave a comment in the section below!)

Fourth grade is such an exciting year.  We will spend the first week or two getting to know one another and working on some team building activities.  We will also spend time building our reading stamina. We will start out small and reach the goal of reading at a sustained pace for 30 minutes! You will be hearing a lot about the Daily5 which will give you many CHOICES on your reading journey. This year we will continue with our new math program called EnVisions.  I think you are going to enjoy learning math with the help of this program!  I have some new and exciting lessons planned in Science and Social Studies as well.

During the summer I went to a conference and found some great websites that will help us as we are learning and make your days in our classroom exciting and fun.  An app I hope to use in the classroom is called "Plickers" and the other is "Do Ink".  We will be using "Class Dojo" to keep track of homework!  Let me know if you can find out anything about any of those apps!

We are going to have a great year!  Looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you.  Please fill out this "All About You" Survey. (click on these words: All About You) It will help me get to know you before we meet face to face!  Click and you can get to know more about ME!

Please leave a comment below and tell me something that got you excited this summer!

I'll be looking out for you on the first day of school.
