Identity Bags and Identity Maps

Recently, my class did Identity Maps and Identity Bags. Identity Bags are bags where you put five to eight items that tell something about you and your identity. Identity Maps are a piece of paper where you write and draw things that you like or that shows something about your identity. You can also put a big picture in the middle of the paper that shows a really big part of your identity.

These things were both very fun and interesting. I learned things about myself that forgot about. For example, I know that I love dogs and cats, but I realized my love for a lot of other animals too. I also learned a lot of things about my classmates that I would never guess was their identity. For example I learned where all my classmates used to live, and their nationality. Overall, it was a really great experience.

Welcome to 4th grade!

My 4th grade year has begun! I am feeling good about 4th grade so far. I’m off to a good start. So far, 4th grade is awesome! I have a great class. I think this is going to be my best year because a have a great teacher. I also have some of my best friends in my class. This is the first time that we’ve been in a class together! I am so lucky!


My goals for this year are to become better at all of the subjects, raise my hand whenever I can, and to put my best work into everything I do. I really need to remember to make sure that I bring the right things home for homework. I also need to remember to bring my homework in on time. Most of all, I will not give up on hard things!  Overall, I know that 4th grade will teach me a lot. I hope to complete all of my goals, and have an awesome 4th grade year.
