The week of January 14th, fourth graders will be participating in the National Geographic School Bee.  This is a fun experience that builds community and encourages us to think about the world beyond Vermont.  The GeoBee is meant to be a fun experience that motivates us to think and learn!
If kids would like to take some time to prepare, below are links they may find helpful.  The GeoBee will ask questions about locations around the world, history, culture, & climate, while also focusing on vocabulary.  We will also do a little prep in the classroom to get kids excited and feeling ready to participate in the GeoBee!

Leading the All School Meeting!!!

Image
I am SO incredibly proud of these fourth graders today! 🤗They led their first All-School Meeting by themselves and were AMAZING! They shared their talents, showed the school our kindness boomerang, sang Happy Birthday, and even lead the school in a breathing exercise. 
It took a lot of practice but they were absolutely amazing! They should be very proud of themselves. 
Take a look at these pictures! If you would like to see videos, check us out on instagram (@ms.poncelet_4thgrade) or on Twitter (@msponcelet_grd4)!
