book report disguised as a game

Each fourth grader was to read an award winning book (Newbery or Golden Sower --Nebraska's award) and then make a game board .  We shared the games with the kindergarten classes and the third graders.  Lots of fun!!

Biography Book Reports

Read a biography, make a time line, and then come to school dressed as that person.  FUN DAY

this week in 4th...

YEA!! Writing test is completed except for one student who was gone...
This is the week for our biography projects...LOVE, LOVE this week.  Students present as the person in their biography.

Week of building background information...We're reading Seeker of Knowledge next week, so this week we're learning about Egypt.  One item  on my bucket list is to visit Egypt (which will probably never happen), but  teaching about it is always fun.

Reading A-Z always has great booklets to help with background information.

Reading

This week our reading story is Navajo Code Talkers.  This is a great way to share history and reading.  I've been using Karen at TPT to help with focusing on the selection.

Teacher Fun

The teachers wore 'ugly' sweaters to school last week.  We had a full week of class.  Glad we don't have two wasted days next week.
Merry Christmas
