Weekly News

Wonderful writing is happening in fourth grade! Scholars have been working hard to complete the final phase of "Expository Writing Bootcamp." In the first two phases, scholars have experienced guided planning and paragraph development lessons, and they have practiced planning and writing with partners. In this final phase, scholars are now using their new confidence and these practiced skills to independently plan and create thoughtful expository writing!

Los alumnos han estado trabajando para culminar la etapa final del entrenamiento de escritura expositiva. En las primeras dos etapas, los estudiantes recibieron guía en el plan y desarrollo de la escritura de párrafos, así como también practicaron la escritura con un compañero. En esta etapa final, los alumnos usarán sus propias destrezas para planear y escribir independientemente.
