Parent Communication
I strive to follow the higher level pyramid of Bloom's Taxonomy (Bloom, 1954) when designing units.
Those upper levels require learners to:
EVALUATE (make a thoughtful choice between options, with the choice based upon clearly stated criteria)
SYNTHESIZE (invent a new or different version)
ANALYZE (develop a thorough and complex understanding through skillful questioning).
Bloom’s Taxonomy
Just a few topics we will cover

Extra Curricular Offerings
Classroom Discipline
All units are designed to stimulate thoughts in an area that might not be covered in their grade level curriculum.
You will receive a unit overview before each new unit. This will outline the standards included in the unit and what to expect at home.
Units usually will last for the quarter with a culminating project at the end. Some assistance at home will be required. Information will be provided via email, Google Classroom or take home papers with details.

Facebook
: I have a class page last year and it was really successful! I post pictures and general posts for parents on this page regularly. If you utilize facebook please ask to join "
Mrs. OG's Enrichment Class
". You will find it a great way to join us in class adventures!
Special 4th Grade Unit:
Story telling and video production
Google Classroom:
I use this tool to send links and assignments to students. They also turn in assignments through this site. It is a very useful way for me to communicate to the students and collect online work.
Developing challenging goals and planning how to achieve those goals is critical for all learners. In this class, students will learn to develop and work on personal goals all school year. Goal sheets will be completed during class and worked on at home.

When the deadline is done, we will announce their outcome. Successful outcomes will require that tha key be decorated and returned to class for display. Unsuccessful outcomes will also be discussed in terms of learning what to do next time and students will be encouraged to just move on to the next challenge or retry.

GOALS
Classroom Rules:

In this class I expect students to be:
Respectful
helpful, kind, polite
Resourceful
seek out ways to get the job done
DON'T GIVE UP
Responsible
prepared, prompt, on task
I look forward to learning with your child this year!
