We most often use our blog to communicate with our parents what we have been doing, thinking, and feeling. Looking over the list of things we have done recently, choose at least THREE about which to write. Describe the activity or lesson and tell what you have been learning. What have you liked and why? What has challenged you and why?
MAKE SURE TO USE CAPITALS AND END PUNCTUATION (#1 goal of the day).
Finally, write at least one sentence about how you expect people to behave at the Bear Mall today. You should have at least four paragraphs (skip lines between – no indenting!) when you are finished.

Work with other students who were in your carpool/study group. Describe your part of the Marin Sanitary Service facility. Use sensory detail (sights, sounds, smells, textures). Tell what your part of the facility is supposed to do. Add interesting details that you can remember.
Check your work before publishing!

Welcome to fourth grade! I have loved getting to know you over the past week.
On many Fridays this year you will blog about your week. This will help you think back over what we have done and make more sense of it, especially as you share your writing with your parents and read what your classmates have written.
Please write as much as you can to answer the following questions:
1) What is your favorite thing we have done so far in fourth grade? Why?
2) Why do groups of people (such as 4th graders and the 50 states) need government?
3) How can your education change you as a person?
Before you publish your blog, make sure to reread it to catch errors. Then have me or a friend read it. Work carefully so you don’t lose your work.
Have a great Labor Day Weekend!

Please write an entry about what we have been doing in school this week. You might write about the STAR Math Practice contest, the STAR math test, about Math Stations, about writing poetry, about Cookie Mining, about watching Ms. Harder’s class do “Gold Dust or Bust,” about making Keynotes, or anything else you remember from this week. Include details so that your parents or other readers can get a clear picture of what you did and learned.
Tell which lesson or activity you felt challenged you the most and made you think the deepest. Tell which lesson or activity was the most entertaining for you and why.
As always, check your work CAREFULLY for spelling, punctuation, and grammar errors!

Using the graphic organizer you helped to create, write a detailed description of our all-day field trip to Sacramento. Start with an attention-getting sentence that tells the who, what, when, where, and why of the trip. You don’t have to include everything on the organizer, and you can add things that are not listed. There is so much to say that you will probably need more than one session to finish. Try to use compound sentences and Brushstrokes in your writing.
As always, check and re-check your work to make sure you have caught all the errors in spelling and mechanics and that you have the best flow possible.
Yours, Ms. QFiled under Field Trips | Comments (20)
