4th and 5th grade students are busy writers!  
We will begin the year writing narratives before focusing on opinion and expository pieces for the majority of the year.  We also use our iPads for most of our publishing, which allows for important technology skills to be integrated at the same time.

There are some important flyers we use here at Hopkins to support positive writing skills and support students in the revising and editing process.

Now that we have keyboards connected to our iPads,

Students can log in using their Google username and IXL password here:  Typing Web Log-In
