This week, besides organizing our writing materials, students will be demonstrating their writing skills through a fun "get-to-know" you activity. Each child will create a newspaper article which will highlight important characteristics about themselves that they would like for me to know. These articles will be posted in the classroom and hallway for you to look at when you have a chance, too! I am very anxious to learn more about each student this week.
4th grade students will be assessed in grammar in the spring, so a significant portion of our writing class will focus on these skills. This week, I hope to begin reviewing nouns: common/proper; concrete/abstract; singular/plural.
