Fractions - Not Always a Piece of Cake!
But fourth-graders find them easier with Bridges math resource
4th grade students are using tools to help build visual models of fractions.  They practice using the manipulatives at workplaces with math partners to build conceptual understanding.  As their understanding strengthens, they can solve problems without building visual models.

PBIS: Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports

 At Valley View, students taught to be Respectful, Responsible and Ready! These positive behaviors promote a safe and positive learning environment. Students will be reinforced by earning Class Dojo points.  Parents can access their child's Dojo by logging in to see how their child's week is going.  

A Note From Mrs. Posnanski:
Students love receiving points and positive reinforcement for behaviors. Occasionally, students may lose a point. We are utilizing the program to shape student behavior and increase positive choices. When a child loses a point, the teacher will not be able to notify the parents for each incident. Many of these negative points are for extremely minor items. A few examples may be: lying on the carpet during instruction, talking out of turn, not walking in the hallway, etc. Many of these behaviors occur in schools and have always occurred. Teachers have always given reminders to students and will continue to do so. Parents should not be alarmed if their child receives a negative point. If it is a larger issue, the teacher or office will contact you directly to discuss the incident. The program is meant to be a positive tool. As a parent please look at the percentage of positive points and celebrate that with your child. If the percentage is chronically low, please feel free to contact me. Our goals are that we continue to celebrate and reward students for positive behavior and communicate often with parents about student progress. We know that Class DoJo will continue to assist us with attaining our goals and will continue to motivate children to do their best!!!
