What kind of week have you had?
Tell your parents about what we’ve been doing lately (give them a good list!). Choose your favorite one to three things to describe in detail.
Then add a paragraph to tell what you are looking forward to doing.

Begin with an opening sentence about the week. Then choose AT LEAST THREE of the topics below. Write two to five sentences about each of your chosen topics – a paragraph for each.
1) Native Californians – What tribe have you studied? What have you learned?
2) Magnetism – What have you done and learned so far?
3) The Explorer Tea – What part did you get? What did you think of the video of a past performance? What expectations do you have about your performance?
4) Ornithology – What bird did you research and make a podcast for? How did you do on the Junior Birdwatching exam?
5) Multiplication – Do you understand partial products and using arrays to multiply two-digit times two-digit numbers? How are you doing on multiplication? Do you know your basic multiplication and addition facts well enough?
6) Opinion Writing – Which topic did you choose from the list and what is your opinion? How do you think your writing has developed lately?
7) Day of Code – What game(s) did you play to practice programming? How did you do? Would you consider having computer programming as your career when you grow up? Why?
As always, read and reread your writing to catch errors before publishing.

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!
