RES Fourth Grader's visit Fort Ticonderoga!

2018 RES Fourth Graders!

Fort Ticonderoga!

The kids and chaperones had such a blast at Fort Ticonderoga! It was great to see these Fourth Grader's know so much and make connections to the material we have learned in class.

Final Stretch!

Howdy everyone! 
This week was full of exciting new learning. I have had so much fun getting to know these amazing kids and what they are passionate about. I plan to continue our togetherness through movement activities and team building strategies as they finish off the school year. We are learning to be researchers of history, looking at how Vermont evolved and what makes Vermont unique today. Students will create a project with a partner to give a tour of several places to visit for people who have never ventured here before. They are very into it! I can't wait to invite you all in to see these awesome projects. 

This week we also kicked off something very special. Student's learned about the amazing Cheryl Jennings and her passion to teach students to love reading too. Students were able to choose books that were "just right" books to bring home and read. This can look like independent reading, parallel reading, reading to your child, or having your child read to you. Our goal is to have students find books that they fall in love with! Attached you will find photos of Cheryl, but also of her husband Bill who has come in to RES to read to the fourth grade during RES Reads!

I will keep you all posted through a more informative weekly email and hope to meet you all soon in passing or in the classroom!

May the fourth be with you!

Thank you!

I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to teach such a wonderful group of kids!  I will miss them all, but I know that they are in the capable hands of Ms. Roberge for the rest of the year. 
Here's the most amazing class:  Ella, Megan, Cameron, Jake, Jack, Pierson, Brady, Steven, John, Caleb, Allie, Kingston, and Ellie.

Debates and Decorations

While students in Ms. Senning's class were working hard and debating bills as a part of our Vermont Civics studies, Mrs. Lefrancois' class was secretly working on preparing her classroom for a staff baby shower! 
Check out the incredibly sweet slideshow of her students at work.

K-Buddies, Poetry, Fire Drill, and Games!

We met with our kindergarten friends this morning to read some poetry and play some board games.  We were interrupted by a fire drill, but fourth graders and kindergarteners did a great job taking it all in stride.  It is so heartwarming to see fourth graders take on a leadership role with their young friends!
