    * 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

     

    Writing:

    * 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

     

    Math:

    * Review of place and value with larger numbers

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