Welcome to my blog site. This year I will be teaching 4th grade ELA/SS. I'm excited to embark on the new changes approaching me. I'm always looking for new ideas to get students engaged and eager to learn. I hope you enjoy my blog. Please leave comments or ideas.

Making Connections to Text
I'm sorry if this picture is blurry. Tomorrow we will be reading a story and making some connections to the text. The hexagons located on the picture say the following: (STOP! I'm wondering if), (STOP! I'm picturing in my head), (STOP! That reminded me of,) and (STOP! I'm predicting that).. This is a great tool to get the kiddos thinking. I provide my students with a chart that looks like the material on the board.
