Cobb Digital Library

Our students are learning Cobb Digital L

With CDL, every student has FREE access to:

 

  • eBooks
  • games/puzzles
  • Tumblebooks
  • wonderful databases for research
  • videos
  • and many more

 

My goal is to get students directed to these resources in CDL, rather than going to Bing and Google, where they can run across information that  invalid. They will have a sticker in their agenda with the sites and log in information.

What Are We Learning In Class?

What We’re Learning…

Math: Add/Subtract fluently multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

Reading: Students will envision, predict and make inferences about characters in books they’ve read. They will also use specific details to describe a setting, character, or event in a story. I’ll be using the book entitled: The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo during our mini lessons to engage, model, and activate student thinking.

1st Full Week of School

I am so excited to have such a great class this year! We are going to have a wonderful time learning, laughing, and exploring this year in 4th grade.  All the students are settling in with the classroom procedures, rules, rewards and consequences. We have all made friends with each other, and our compassionate group of classmates support and help each other.
