Welcome to Grade 4

Image result for welcomeWelcome back to school and welcome to Mrs. Davies Dynamic Class! 

Can you believe summer is over? It seemed to go by very quickly for me. With so many cool days, I think it felt like even more of a blip in time. Oh well, fall is always like New Years to me. A time for fresh starts and new goals.

I am so excited for our first day. Like most students, I too get the first day jitters. The night before, I lie awake anxious with anticipation for how the first day will go. What will I wear? Will my students enjoy me as a teacher this year? Will I remember to say I the things I need to tell them? Have I got everything ready? etc.

Mr. Swinarchin and I have been busy planning for this years grade 4’s and we know we’re going to have a great year.

As classroom activities get busy and planning fun things take up much of my time, I have reduced my expectations for this blog this year (for now). I will use this as a place to share some exciting updates and fun times in our class. Sometimes it might only be a picture post, but my hope is that about once a month I can provide families with a small window into our classroom. Please subscribe for updates and poke around the other pages for more information.

Welcome Back!

Here we are! Back to school! I had a great summer. I hope you did too.

I am so excited for our first day. Like most students, I too get the first day jitters. The night before, I lie awake anxious with anticipation for how the first day will go. What will I wear? Will my students enjoy me as a teacher this year? Will I remember to say I the things I need to tell them? Have I got everything ready? etc.

The grade four teachers and I have had several meetings over the summer to plan and get ready for what we will teach. We even did some hands on research. Here’s a sneak peak…
