I know everyone has been as busy as I have since Spring Break. My 4th grade team is amazing! We have put together a wonderful "Writing Under the STAARS Camp" for our students. Camp lasts for 3 straight days! It includes writing an essay per day, two expository and one narrative. We then correlated the editing passages with their lowest performing student expectation according to TX TEKS. It also includes mini-lessons about how to finish under the pressure of a timed test. I am really excited to have camp this year.
Here is a picture of what "camp" has looked like in years past.

The students know what they need to know, now if they will do what they need to do! It's gonna be a fun, exhausting, and hopefully successful week!
