Next week: Will Hagen (Friday, October 7th)
The students have been enjoying their community visitors, but I tried to squeeze in a very important lesson that seems to be necessary now that the students have adjusted to their daily routine. We read a book called Share and Take Turns by Cheri Meiners and then did an activity taking turns. We took turns with a partner coloring in a picture together. In the PM classes, we had to wait until the other person was finished coloring their section before we had a turn, or we shared the piece of paper and colored different areas. In the AM classes we had to take turns playing with play-doh and play-doh tools. Please practice taking turns at home! Ask your child to “wait” and ask if they will share something with you-such as an item, a story or other information!
Fourth Grade Reading Buddies!
If you have any maps at home you can show them to your child.
You can create a map of your house with your child and add a key!
