I appreciate your patience as I update my site.
The students are ready and deserving of some time off. They were assigned an animal report, and their presentations have been going well. Students will continue to work on citing from multiple sources throughout the year within formal writing and in other curriculum areas. Please enjoy time with family, and always feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Take care.
When we return from all this “snow-fun“, we’ll be continuing our study of Oregon’s four regions. Next up will be a close look at the Native American tribes who lived for thousands of years in the land we now call Oregon. All this will set the stage for our visits to the University of Oregon’s Natural History Museum in February.
Kids, I just wanted to say that I feel so lucky to be your teacher. You help me remember that life should be filled with both hard work and fun giggly times. We also help each other grow as learners and individuals. Our classroom is a place where it’s ok to make mistakes. Remember, there are no silly questions. Well, asking when recess is during a discussion may be a bit off topic. 🙂 Regarding dance-offs in our classroom, be sure to show me your signature move that says who you are and what you’re about.

As you may know, I am a big animal lover. This year I had the amazing honor of meeting a horse by the name of Kermit. What a gentle young man he is! There is so much to taking good care of a horse — a lot more than taking care of a cat, that’s for sure.
I wanted to thank you for coming in to discuss your child’s progress made in the first trimester of the fourth grade. We were also able to set a few goals for the remaining trimesters of school. Class size was a common discussion point, and so your steadfast support in seeing to it that your child shows focus during class instruction is much appreciated. We also discussed the importance of completing assigned homework as it informs us as to concepts your child may need review and practice. Please feel free to contact me any time you have a question or concern at 541-607-9700 Ext.#2644 or firstname.lastname@example.org
