Hi there Fourth Graders,

Today’s schedule includes a chance to start reflecting on our fourth grade year in writing. There’s also a video read-aloud of a new short story that I think you’ll enjoy.

We will have our first day of presentations during this afternoon’s Meets. Group A will meet at 2:00, and Group B will meet at 2:30. Here is the schedule. If you share today, be ready to talk, show a video (or have me screen-share it), or read part of a book you wrote for 3-5 minutes. Then we’ll give you some positive feedback!

You may have been talking and thinking about the protests that have been happening around the world after the killing of George Floyd. There is an event this evening on Facebook for kids, families, and teachers called KitLit Live Rally for Black Lives. It’s organized by a number of award-winning authors, including Kwame Alexander, who wrote¬†The Crossover, that we read earlier this Spring. It starts at 7:00pm and you may want to check it out.

Reminder:

  • Have you been looking for something at home that might be left in the classroom? Add it to this padlet so I can look for it tomorrow when I go to school.
