Cause and Effect Projects

I had an optional assignment for students working with cause and effect. Some students chose to complete it and earned some stars on the super improver wall. Here are the projects they completed. They did a great job and I was super proud!  These are also a great way for students to study and review the skill! 🙂

Welcome Back!!

Welcome back Pinchbeck Rays! 

I am SO excited to be joining the fourth grade TEAM this year! I hope everyone is having a fabulous summer and you are taking the time to relax before the new school year begins. We are going to have a great year together and learn so much! I am so excited to watch you grow.

Our theme this year is “One team, one goal, no limits!” and we will be using the 7 Habits of Happy Kids to help us live up to this motto! We will learn that when we work together as a team there are no limits to what we can do!

My summer has been very relaxing. I spent my time going to the pool and spending time with friends and family. I want to know how your summer has been, so comment below with one of your favorite activities this summer! I can’t wait to meet all of you and your families at Open House on August 31st!

I was SO proud of my little friends on our first field trip! They were on their best behavior, learned a lot, and had lots of fun! Thank you to the parents that were able to join us and help out! It was definitely appreciated. 🙂 Here are some pictures from the trip!

Graphing and Weather Fun!

We have finished up our unit on weather and storms and are now moving on to the water cycle. Students did SO well on their weather tests. I was very proud of them! We were able to watch some real videos of different storms and created storm cartoon characters! I loved seeing students’ creativity come out!

Today we practiced making a picture graph using The Gingerbread Man. Students listened to the story of the Gingerbread Man and then were asked to pretend like they were the wolf. They were asked to bite one piece of the Gingerbread Man off of a real cookie (the head, right leg, right arm, left leg, or left arm) and then we laid them down to create a real life picture graph! We then used paper Gingerbread Men and went through the steps of labeling and creating our picture graph together and students taped their gingerbread man to our picture graph. They had a lot of fun being part of our picture graph today!

Classroom Mission Statement

We have worked so hard to create our classroom mission statement. The kids brainstormed different words that should be included and thoughts about what they want to see in our class. We used sticky notes to find a common theme and after we created the statement together. Students then traced their hand prints and designed them to reflect themselves as a way of signing their name to the mission statement. I think we came up with some great ideas and we are going to work hard to follow it everyday in class.

The year so far…

We are having such a great time getting to know each other and working together in class! Everyone has been working really hard to learn all of the rules and procedures of our classroom and the flexible seating has been a hit! We have worked on some team building activities, created our classroom mission statement, worked on improving our reading stamina, and even had some time for some brain breaks! I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in store.
