What's Happening in 4th Grade!
September 16, 2014
Students are reading, reading, reading! The more we read, the better we read and write!
Reading and writing instruction are connected. As students become more proficient readers, they can include more descriptive vocabulary in their writing. As they learn how authors develop their characters, they can begin to use those techniques in their own stories. We can't wait to see how our fourth grade writers develop!
Students should bring:
plastic bag to carry wet shoes
comfortable walking shoes for other activities
backpack for carrying everything
