If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.

After naming our class bird Tiffany, fourth graders had their second twitter lesson. We looked at our followers, and also made decisions on who we should be following.  We created a tweet for Mrs.Hallet, our librarian, after she complimented the class on using the Daily 5. The students learned how to condense their tweet into only 140 characters.  It was quite a challenge.  We were thrilled that we had chosen two  “twitter directors” to complete the task. We also had our producer, another student, taking pictures.

We continued to make progress with our Daily 3.  Check out our class hard at work on writing.

While the students were writing, my assistant and I were able to conference with students individually on their writing.

We will launch “Word Work” some time next week!
