    Welcome to Fourth Grade at Brookside with Mrs. Cites!!! 


    Are you all ready for our first full week together?  I know I am!  I was busy all weekend planning our lessons and activities! Here's a peek of what's ahead:


    * working on increasing our independent reading stamina

    * keeping track of our reading at school

    * brainstorming meaningful stop and jot starters

    * working with small groups to discuss, question, and write about shared mentor texts



    * working on increasing our independent writing stamina

    * responding to both specific writing prompts and "free choice" writings in order to develop a closer relationship with Mrs. C that can grow over time:)

    * writing about our personal goals and expectations we have for fourth grade



    * Review of place and value with larger numbers

    * Review of standard, written, and expanded form of numbers

    * Review of saying larger numbers properly

    * Better understanding of place value relationships between digits in the same larger number
