2019 – 2020 Welcome Back Letter

Dear Parents,

I would like to welcome you and your child to the fourth grade. We can look forward to many exciting and rewarding experiences as the year progresses.

Language Arts and Technology across the curriculum is a priority and will involve several Project Based Learning activities allowing students to express their creative talents. Some supplies will be provided.

The following organizational materials and supplies are optional but would be helpful to your child throughout the year:

   school box (storage for pencils, markers, color pencils, etc.)

   color pencils (mapping skills/social studies, language arts, projects, etc.)

   think markers (language arts, projects, etc.)

   liquid paper or white out (all subjects)

   extra number 2 pencils

   extra paper

   glue stick

  one-subject (100 pages) spiral notebook (math journal)

NOTE: We have limited space; therefore, it is preferred students do not bring Trapper Keepers/Large Binders.

If you would like to donate a box of Kleenex to our classroom, it would be greatly appreciated. In addition, students will need a read-to-self book and a healthy snack the first full day of school (Tuesday, August 27).

Your cooperation and assistance, throughout the school year, will be most appreciated.

                                                                                                  Thank you,

                                                                                                   Ms. Martin

Avoid Summer Learning Loss

To Avoid Summer Learning Loss, students should continue to read 30 minutes daily. We agreed as a class, they should complete at least two chapter books (100 pages or more) this summer.

In addition, I am sending home three math journals. Students should complete at least one math lesson per week. The topic is Fractions. Their Succeed book has a Homework Helper page for each lesson.

Thank you for sharing your child with me this year! I enjoyed having them in class:)
