Writing Information Stories

Room 4  is writing "All About_______" stories. Information writing is different because we have to choose 5 big ideas or facts, then write some details about the facts. We make a book each time.
After our class books on penguins we made life-size penguins!

Fourth Grade Reading Buddies

Rooms 4 and 16 are Reading Buddies this year.  Fourth graders meet us in the gym 2x a month to share writing and story time. Our partners listen to us read our latest writing, and they read library books to us. What a wonderful experience for both groups of kiddos!

Whale Connections

This morning as we gathered around the carpet because B. and C. started getting excited! They noticed, scanning through books, that 4 different whales use echolocation! Everyone got excited!  We just had to share how great it is to connect that more than 1 kind of whale communicates the same way!

Raptor Visit

We had a wonderful, informative visit from the Chintimini Wildlife Center today. They shared a vulture, 2 owls, and a red-tailed hawk. The boys and girls were able to meet the birds, view various parts of a bird, and "pet" bird wings and feathers.
