In 4th grade, I have been meeting one on one with all students over the last week to go over Reading and Writing goals. We have just completed our Opinion Writing Unit of Study and our first Reading Unit of Study: Reading Intensely and Interpreting Characters. During our meetings I am giving students individualized feedback on their areas of strength and weakness. Goals range from reading punctuation accurately to elaborating the most important part of your writing piece. Celebrations range from supporting your reasoning with examples from the text to using paragraphs correctly. Each child is an individual learner with diverse strengths and needs that are being met by our comprehensive literacy and writing programs.
