Grade 4

So I have moved to a Grade 4 class this year having been on a Grade 5 for 5 years. Bit of change to life at school. I have really enjoyed meeting my Grade 4 students and setting up the classroom routines. 
Australian Curriculum for Grade 4 seems to focus specifically on sustainability and also a close look on perspectives of different cultures. I'm learning what needs to be covered and how I will engage students while covering the curriculum. I have set a goal of making sure multimodal assessment are used that will allow students to think at a deep level and show understanding. 
I will endeavour to blog throughout the year with some teaching ideas aimed at Grade 4.                 Stay tuned...
