Ms. Simmons' Class
Instructor: Ms. Simmons    
Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to my classroom web site! The main purpose of this site is to provide students and parents with a classroom, school, and learning information resource. It is also used to build community and celebrate exciting things that go on in our classroom and school. In addition, it is an avenue for my students to connect with each other, using our class blog. Topics will be rotated every couple of weeks, based on student-selected interests. 

I am excited to be in my 10th year teaching at Camino Grove and 8th year teaching 4th grade.  I look forward to having a great year together!

Best regards,
Ms. Simmons

Room 32 lined up and ready to learn and build community!
I took this photo as our class was preparing to join the other 4th grade classes for our 1st "all 4th grade" community circle. They looked so cute all lined up, so I grabbed my iphone to capture the moment.

Field Trips
We are hoping to have 2 to 3 field trips this year. We will definitely be going to VT Ranch, which offers our students a fabulous, hands on experience of what it must have been like to live in the days of the California Gold Rush!

The Power of Yet - TED Talk by Stanford Professor Carol Dweck
I don't usually push things on people but I highly recommend that you take a few minutes to watch this TED talk by Dr. Carol Dweck, a psychology professor at Stanford University. Her talk truly moved me and my thinking as an educator, as a parent, and as a human being.

Go to Google and type in search: "The Power of Yet by Carol Dweck." It's a little over 11 minutes long and well worth the time investment.
