Week In Review

Week In Review:

This week our Week In Review features...
  • Writing - Sophia & Annie
  • Social Studies - Sam & Nick
  • Reading - Ada & Nolan
  • Math - Brooke & Ava
  • Film Crew - Amisha, Teshaun, Ben, Lauren
  • Production Crew - Megan & Jaden
As we move forward through the rest of the year students will be "doubling up" on math. The 4th grade teachers are working to fit in all of the units before the end of the year. We will be utilizing AC Lab and other portions of the day where we are already ahead of schedule. Please let me know if you have any questions about this.

Genius Hour:

We started our Genius Hour time this week! Genius Hour is an idea that actually started at Google! Google employees get to spend 20% of their time working on something their passionate about. We will be implementing a similar model in our classroom. On Fridays students will get to spend 1 hour studying anything they want. Today we started by brainstorming ideas. Ask your student for my information this weekend. 

In the meantime, check our Facebook page for live videos and keep up with our Twitter account too.
