First, and most importantly, I should get my computer back this week. Although I am thankful my brother got my old computer into workable shape, it's uses are very limited. I can't wait to start creating again!
This week, we will be talking about nonfiction structures. One of my favorite nonfiction resources is Linda Hoyt's Exploring Informational Texts.
Linda Hoyt includes examples, attributes and key words for the different text structures. This matches perfectly with the fourth grade Common Core standards. I will be using these pages as a guide for creating anchor charts.
This Friday, my school is sponsoring "Parents' Night Out". We are offering to watch students from 6:00PM-10:00PM. There will be a variety of activities from 6:00-8:00. (My room will have karaoke!) At 8:00, everyone will gather together and decide what movie they would like to watch. The end of the night will be spent watching movies and eating popcorn. I am in charge of this event. Please let me know if you would like information about it for your school. I would be happy to send it to you.
I am off to see what everyone else has planned for the week. Thank you, Jennifer for hosting this linky!
Have a great week!
