Welcome to Fourth Grade!
Can you believe how fast summer is going by? I hope you all are having a great and restful summer, filled with some great reading, playing and laughing. This will be a great year of learning, exploring, and discovering! We will start the year getting to know each other, reviewing many of the skills we learned in 3rd grade, and getting back into the school routine.
I hope you are looking as forward to this coming year as I am and if there is anything you are worried about don’t hesitate to email me from the link on this web page.
As far as supplies, there are a few things you will need for school. First things you need are a positive attitude and a smile; they get you through challenges better than any tool I know! Don’t forget some water, a snack and a lunch. (You can also bring money for snack and lunch if you would like).
I am also encouraging students to bring in:
If it is a problem for you to get any of these supplies, we have ordered some so we can be sure every child has what he or she needs.
I am very excited to see you on September 4th!
Homework Policy for the beginning of the Year
Because research shows that students have greatest success when taught a process, such as homework, I will be spending time teaching how I would like homework completed. Therefore, the only homework, during the 1st two weeks of school will be to share the events of the day with an adult at home and to read independently for 20 minutes. See the “Homework” page for more details about homework after two weeks.
If you would like to warm up for 4th grade you can log on to the following websites
Everyday Math and Wonders can now be accessed from the same website:
For most of you,
Your user name is NB (your first initial upper case) and your lunch number
Your password is nb (no initial) and your lunch number
(ex. For Jane Smith who has 1234 for a lunch number
her username would be NBJ1234 and her password: nb1234
(If these passwords don’t work, don’t hesitate to email me)
On the Wonders site you have access to the games by clicking on “games” then clicking “view all games”
***Everyday Math is presently not accessible to students. I have been assured that it will be before the beginning of school.****
On the Everyday Math site you have access to the “EM games online”, the “eToolkit” and the “Student Reference Book” by clicking on the “menu” in the top left hand corner. (There is a tiny word that says menu with 3 lines underneath)
This will be updated once a week. Please be sure to check back each week.
