Mrs. Hildebrand's 4th Grade Class
November 12 - November 15
We have started Book Clubs/Literature Circles in class! Students will be assigned 1-3 chapters to read each week. In addition, they will have a task to complete, such as summarizing or finding interesting and unfamiliar words. Please check in with your students regularly to ensure they are reading their required readings so that they are ready to discuss in class!
