SVCA 4th graders had a great 1st week back to school. We kicked our reading unit off with the novel, "Because of Winn Dixie". If you’ve read the book about the sweet, caring girl and her amazing dog she took ownership of at the grocery store then you know that these kiddos are loving it so far actively listening and drawing scenes while I read aloud!
We have also started in on hands on science by using stem bin challenges. Today the 4th grade was grouped in small groups to construct an object they picked using the stem bin I gave them. After completing their object, they were given a paper and asked 3 questions to reflect on their task. They displayed great team work! I’m grateful I am able to see this class work together and grow into wonderful kids! Fun was had by all! ready to see what next week has in store! :)
