Celebration of Learning!

Friday, students showed all their hard work by sharing their research with others in the classroom.  Students chose to make posters, use books to share their knowledge and make books or trifolds.  Students did a marvelous job and I was really impressed!

Escape Room

The fourth grade students were trapped in a haunted house with all kinds of monsters yesterday.  They had to complete questions, clues and codes dealing with grammar to escape.  Sadly, none of the groups escaped, but they had fun trying!
One of the puzzles students put together.

Students used the decoder to figure out secret codes.

Clues were hidden near creatures such as these around the room.

Flashlight Friday

We had so much fun with our flashlight Friday reading today.  We even had a fire on our Smart board!  We will definitely do this again sometime soon!

Book Tasting

This Friday, our classroom transformed into a cafe. On the menu were five different chapter books for the students to “taste”. Throughout their meal, students made observations about the books, watched book trailers, and read through the first few pages of each book. The room became filled with conversations about the books and excitement to begin reading. The students walked away with some new book choices for their next visit to the library. Listed below are the books that were on the menu.
About Average by Andrew Clements
Angus and Sadie by Cynthia Voight
Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures by Kate Dicamillo
Hatchet by Gary Paulsen
Hold Fast by Blue Balliett
