Welcome to our 4th grade class! This year some of our goals will be:
Become a confident speaker in a group.
Know that good leaders are willing to listen to the ideas of others.
Back up what you say with evidence.
Believe that everyone in our class has something to offer and contribute.
Begin to take charge of your education by learning organization, coming to class prepared, using rubrics to get the grade you want, knowing that perseverance is necessary to achieve any goal, knowing that making mistakes are part of learning, polish your strengths and improve upon on your weaknesses, and teachers don’t give grades – you earn them.
Above all, have a sense of humor.
