Mrs. Brock's Bulletin
Tales from 4th Grade
Here's what's happening...
In Writing, we have been working on creating exciting beginnings to narratives. Students are practicing starting their stories with ACTIONS, SOUNDS, DIALOGUE, or even THOUGHTS of a character.
In Reading, we started a book study on James and the Giant Peach! We are studying how to get to know characters in the book by observing character traits (internal and external). We have also begun our Eagle Time Reading Groups. This is a great opportunity for your child to get explicit reading instruction on his/her level in a very small group environment!
