Core Values: Academics and Personal Attributes at Work in Room 3
Welcome to 4th Grade!!
I'm so excited to have you in my classroom this year! We will learn 4th grade curriculum and also focus on the core values that are a recipe for a good friend.
School supplies needed on a daily basis: A standard 1 1/2 inch three ring binder, 24ct. colored pencils, black expo markers, two glue sticks, small scissors, tissue box and paper towels, pencils, and ear buds.
Some dates to remember:
New policy this year: Parents interested in field trips/working in class, will need to be fingerprinted and have TB clearance and paperwork. You can go to the office and get paper work to start this process.
Recycled water bottle fundraiser: Bring empty bottles in on Wednesdays.
August 18- a short meeting about our classroom organization and the economic system from 2:30pm-3:00pm.
August 18- Lion's Den
August 23- volunteer donation and emergency paperwork is due.
August 21- 10:00am View Eclipse through really cool glasses!
On this website you will find our daily homework as well as other important notes and news. Students should NOT depend on school notes for daily homework. They will need to use their planners for recorded information. Life skills at work.
Websites that support curriculum
Parents please note: You can view your child grade through this portal:
The following websites will support classroom curriculum:
Scholastic News: password TBA
Grammar support: softschools.com
CCSS Math support: Kahn Academy/learnzillion.com/MathAntics
Typing: typing.com (proper finger placement is required for program)
Daily Reading Log:
Please help your child by correcting errors on their daily reading log before turning it in on Friday. Please correct indention, transitional words, and adjectives.
Purpose: The reason for daily reading for 20 minutes and writing is to develop comprehension and consistent practice of components when writing a paragraph. The focus is on indent, transitions, adjectives, hook, and topic.
Students need to increase their keyboarding skills for CCSS. Please go to typing.com (suggested programs that include finger placing will help the most). Students have their password in their binders.
Information about cyber bullying, digital footprints, and appropriate conduct will be discussed in class and I hope at home as well. This is an important concept to teach at a young age to set protocol.
Core values at work:
We always practice our core values of respect, responsibility, caring, trust, and perseverance through our yellow ticket system. Students who receive a yellow ticket through the week, try their luck at "Corn Hole" on Fridays.
