Reading

    In fourth grade we move from learning to read to reading to learn. We will be using Houghton Mifflin for part of our reading instruction. We will also be using Storyworks.
( http://storyworks.scholastic.com/ ) Check back for a code that your student will be able to use to access the on-line resources that support reading. Reading will be used to support our science and social studies learning as well as provide models for writing. 
    Many parents ask me for book recommendations. My first response is to send them to the Multnomah County library site. They have wonderful book lists that cover various grade level as well as topics. http://www.multcolib.org/kids/
You can also search the Hopkins Media center site for additional ideas.
