Welcome to class 4S! This year in 4th Grade, you will investigate all subjects by asking questions, looking for clues, and finding answers! I love to solve mysteries, just like a detective. As a 4th Grade Detective, you will investigate, explore, and analyze new things in Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
There are many fun, educational activities planned, such as the perennial favorites: The Production of Lewis and Clark, our field trip to Trenton, the Poetry Slam, and Electiricity Houses. Logon to our Google Classroom with your child to see all of the technology related projects we are working on.
Please encourage your child to read, read, read throughout the year! There is significant research supporting the notion that children who read at home do better in school. Students who are good readers also tend to be better writers, spellers, have richer vocabularies, and are more successful in the content areas, such as science and social studies. In class, we are keeping track of the students' total books read. The students will bring home a certificate for parents to sign in order to add stickers to our ever-growing chart. How many books do you think we can read before the end of the year?
If your child is ever absent, refer to our 'Homework" board below to find out what was missed. This board will be updated weekly. Posting the homework is intended to help you, as parents, to help your child at home. Students are required to copy the daily homework into their agenda each morning. Please note, it is always best to refer first to the student agenda as daily homework may change to meet the needs of the students. Specific Math homework will not be posted as students change classes for Math. Typically, the homework corresponds to the Topic and Lesson covered in class that day.
Parents, if you have any questions during the year, please feel free to reach out to me at any time. You can send a note with your child, call the school's office, or email me and I will respond as soon as possible. The quickest way to reach me is by email at email@example.com.
Most months I will send home a Scholastic book order form. The students get very excited to look for new books to read. You can send your order through backpack or use the link below to order online. Just be sure to send a check. NO CASH please.
Every online order earns free books for our class library.
Greetings 4th Grade Families!
While our school is closed from March 16th through March 27th, the Fourth Grade will utilize our Google Classroom as we transition to our Flexible Instructional Day/Distance Learning Plan.
We’re ba-a-a-ck! Just like Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery, Monday March 16th we will begin a new adventure with Distance Learning. Each morning, you should logon to check our Google Classroom for Homeroom and Math. There you will find directions and materials to use for your learning. For most assignments you will be responsible for completing an activity and ‘turning it in’. I understand that this is a first time experience for you. It is a first for me as well, so I guess you could say we are in the same keelboat. If you need any help during the day, ask your parent to send me an email. If it is a question that you think everyone will benefit from hearing, you may post a comment on the Stream. Please avoid using the Stream as a place to have conversations with your classmates. I look forward to exploring this new territory with you.
