Welcome to Our Classroom Website!
Come to our website often to learn about the things we are doing and learning in our Fourth Grade. As the year gets going you will find information about our Spelling and Vocabulary here. You can also find links to the things we are studying.
Blogs and Glogs
We write every day in our class. That may be with pencil and paper. Other times it is using technology. We will learn about writing, reading and commenting on blogs. A blog is a website that is like an on-line journal. Later in the year we will learn how to make Voki's like the one at the top of this page. In order to make the Voki talk, the creator has to write what it will say. Then people can click on the little arrow to hear what it has to say. We will also learn to use a website that is called Glogster. On this website you can make an on-line poster. We will use the internet often to help us research subjects that we want to learn more about.
We often use our two class wikis to help us to get to the websites that we want to use. You can see some of things we learned about last year by visiting them at:
We also have a wiki that we use for social studies and science. It is called Explore Earth. You can see the Glogs that last year's 4th graders made when they were studying states.
Everyone in our class will also have their own blog. Check out our writing on Kidblogs.
The Phillips Code of Respect
Families have rules and so do schools. At Phillips we always follow the Code of Respect. Phillips students show respect by:
Following the directions of the adult in charge.
Keeping hands, feet and objects to themselves.
Leaving dangerous objects, toys, gum, and candy at home.
Using quiet voices and appropriate language.
Being with their class or having a pass.
Taking ownership of their actions.
In our classroom we follow the code of respect. We also have some other rules that help us to learn and have fun together.
