IGNITING DIVISION 4!

Division 4 is working toward a LEARNING CONFERENCE that all students will be presenting at in our classroom in the final week of school. Each student is preparing an IGNITE TALK on a topic of his/her choice. This is an opportunity to become an expert in a topic, learn something new, and refine our writing, communication and thinking skills.
