February 2018 Update:
Happy New Year Hubbell Families! Our work wheels and gears have certainly been in motion since our Winter Break!
Fourth grade continues to closely intertwine non-fiction skills in reading and writing. In Reader’s Workshop, students are heading in the direction of discovering and evaluating author’s stance. While in Writer’s Workshop, they will be reading multiple resources, taking notes, and paraphrasing the information to write their own report which will include their own stance.
Although we have moved onto fractions, the fourth graders have realized as mathematicians, basic fact knowledge is crucial to determine equivalent fractions and compare fractions. Students are learning math through the workshop model in fourth grade. This allows for teachers to differentiate their instruction with guided math groups and centers after a whole group lesson. Would you like to see this in action? The fourth grade team is planning on sending an invitation to parents/guardian in the future for this opportunity. More information will come.
On January 30th, we were lucky to have State Trooper Moon come to Hubbell to speak to the fourth and fifth grade classes. Trooper Moon explained the basic duties as a state trooper and put an emphasis on her message: work hard to achieve your dream. Students were certainly eager to hear what she had to say and ask her questions. Thank you Trooper Moon!
