Hello Fourth Graders,

I am so excited to be working with you this year! Some things that you can work on are seen below.  Please refer to your canvas page (through your email) to see specific information about our class~

Reading-

Read 20+ minutes per day (any reading is good reading, this can be magazines, picture books, chapter books, articles, newspaper articles, recipes, etc…)

Listen to reading- storylineonline.net is a great resource where famous actors/actresses read to you

Discuss what you have read:  Find the main idea, discuss the setting/characters/conflict/resolution, find cause and effect/compare/contrast scenarios, locate fact vs. opinion, etc…

 

Math-

Practice math facts-while sitting in the house, at the dinner table, or taking a walk ask your child multiplication and division fact questions such as 9x7 or 30/5 

 

Writing-

Stories- write a personal narrative (a story about him/her and an event that has happened in your lifetime 

 

Students can access their Office 365 account and use resources under Clever

 

PLEASE also allow your child to have physical activity in your backyard, the basement, or in your family room. While it is important that he/she continue to review and read daily, it is also important that he/she continue to be a kid.  Even at school we have a 30 minute recess block.

Please also allow for creativity.  Your child can make something with recycled materials or things laying around the house, play games, follow a new recipe or complete puzzles.  Take pictures and send them to the teachers as we would LOVE to see how you are spending your time. 


I would love to hear how you are doing and what you are up to.
