Mrs. Van Hal - 4th Grade Class Book

posted May 21, 2015, 10:16 AM by Jill Brunkan   [ updated May 21, 2015, 10:16 AM ]

The students in Mrs. Van Hal's 4th grade class accomplished a great goal as they became published authors and published a class book entitled, "Life Wouldn't be the Same Without...". The students picked a topic they were passionate about and researched the historical, scientific, or technical aspects of their topics.  Then, they had to include why the topic was important and how it impacted society (Reading Informational Standard 4.3).  They took their topics through the writing process, including citing their sources (Writing Standards 4.2, 4.7).

Mrs. Van Hal's mom, Marianne Sorenson, provided the inspiration for this project.  As a children's author, Mrs. Sorenson presented a writing workshop to the students earlier in the year, and wrote a co-constructed narrative piece together.  The students asked Mrs. Van Hal if they could publish their own writings and thus the project was born!
The students and families celebrated their achievements on Tuesday night, May 19, at a Book Publishing Party in Mrs. Van Hal's classroom.  In the standing-room-only crowded room, students took to the Author's Chair and read their writings (Speaking and Listening Standard 4.4).  They did a fantastic job with the entire project!  A special thanks to Ed White PTA for providing the funding for the cake and punch reception.

Donate Can Tabs!

posted May 7, 2015, 9:11 AM by Jill Brunkan   [ updated May 7, 2015, 9:11 AM ]

Thank you to the students who have brought in can tabs all year!  Mrs. Mixdorf has provided us with a new gray waste basket so we can continue to collect can tabs.  It is located in the lobby.  Please keep can tabs inside a baggie or container (NO loose tabs).

The Shriner group collects the tabs, redeems them for the aluminum, and uses the money to support the Shriners' Hospitals. The Shriners operate a 22-hospital system providing totally free medical care to any child under the age of 18 with burn injuries, spinal cord injuries, or orthopedic problems.
