Book Talk

Our classroom librarians recommend these books...

Incentive Chart

Every five days, I total the positive points and put stamps onto the Incentive Charts.  

Each week the student will receive 10 tickets 
(1 ticket=1 positive point; 10 possible points a week).  

For every ticket that must be given up (due to behavior and/or incomplete homework), the student will lose 1 point.  

Students are able to accumulate positive points on their individual incentive charts for special rewards.  Ask to see your child's chart today!

In the Computer Lab...

Go to this Typing Website!
(You can also visit this website at home!)

Our speed goals are:
Quarter 1 - 15 wpm
Quarter 2 - 16 wpm
Quarter 3 - 18 wpm
Quarter 4 - 20 wpm

Keep in mind you may be faster (or slower) than this.
Go at your own pace and set goals for yourself!
We have a goal to get better at typing throughout this school year.

Here we are in the computer lab last week...

A few pictures from the first week of school...

Showing our true personalities!

Great big smiles!  It's been a great first week!
All packed up after a hard day's work.

We love 4th Grade!
