For the last few weeks, the fourth grade has been discussing the meaning of friendship. The students have begun posting about friendship on their individual blogs. To view a student’s blog, start by clicking on the “Student Blogs” tab at the top of this page, and then click on the name of the student whose blog you wish to view. If you would like to receive an email each time your child makes a post, you will need to subscribe to your child’s blog. Don’t be afraid to leave a positive comment on a post! The kids LOVE to know that someone is actually viewing their hard work!
The students have written sensory poems about Thanksgiving, and many of them have posted their creative writing on their blogs. I encourage you to visit your child’s blog, and even some of the other students’ blogs, to view their writings. (If you haven’t yet SUBSCRIBED to your child’s blog, please do so– you don’t want to miss any of his/her creative genius!) Also, don’t forget to leave a positive comment, because EVERYONE likes to be bragged upon!
Please subscribe to this blog by entering your email address on the top left-hand side of this blog! This is a portal to your child’s own blog. To visit your child’s blog, click on his/her name on the left side of this blog.
One of our first major technology projects involved taking a fun writing assignment and creating a digital version of the writing. The kids used computers and iPods to create Glogster posters of their creations. They’re posting their Glogs on their blogs as they complete them. I encourage you to check out their creations and leave comments. Let us know what you think!
The video below will show the students’ written versions of their creations being read in their own voices. Enjoy!
Please answer our five poll questions below. We will use this information to create bar graphs and pictographs. Thanks for helping us out!
Click on the play bar below to hear a message from our class! (We used the voice recorder you helped us get from Sonic!) Then visit each student’s page to see the Sense poems they wrote. Click on the play bar on the poster (usually around the student’s name) to hear the student reading their writing. Enjoy!
