    Soldiers, take a moment to reflect on your learning over the past several weeks. Think about all you have learned about elements of poetry, reading and writing decimals, exploring simple machines, and learning and using science vocabulary.
     
    Your task is to describe, in detail, three things that you have learned in 4th grade over the past few weeks.
     
    In addition, explain whether you have been displaying a fixed or a growth mindset in school and give examples of how you know which mindset you have! 
     
    I can't wait to read your responses! Remember to type with proper blogging etiquette. Have fun!                   !Image result for hooah soldier

    Let's Reflect!
     
    Think about all that we have been learning in-class. If a surprise visitor stopped into our classroom and asked you what you have learned lately, what would you tell them
     
    Think about our I can statements about multiplication and division in math. Think about the text structures we've studied in reader's workshop and the close readings we have done to learn about explorers. Lastly, think about all we have learned in order to write a strong, 2 point, short response. 
     
    In your response to this blog, describe, in detail, three things you would tell a surprise visitor who asks you what you've learned lately. Be specific and explain as much as you can! Then, use the thinking stem, "I'm still wondering about..." to finish your blog response! 
     
    Remember to write in complete sentences and type with etiquette!
