Welcome back to school! I am excited to begin another school year teaching 4th grade at Andersen!
Please line up outside our classroom (room 4). It is located opposite the portables.
Fourth Grade Class
Moving On To Fifth Grade Suggested Novel Reading List for Summer – choose at least 2:
Buyea, Rob (author): Because of Mr. Terupt
Curtis, Christopher Paul (author): The Watsons Go to Birmingham, 1963
Gantos, Jack (author): Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key
Plus any books of your choice, of course (bring your recommendations to
school) – and include some nonfiction picture books or interesting biographies
Choose a central theme or leading idea that runs through each plot. Use detailed character description to describe what happens in the story. Write a separate essay about each piece of literature you read.
Lifebook – Journal some of your favorite summer adventures in the remaining pages of your fourth grade Lifebook.
Make or buy multiplication and division flash cards – know your basic facts to 12
Find an educational website and practice adding and subtracting fractions. Practice your place value concepts.
Typing and Cursive Practice:
Pick an educational website to practice TYPING (go to Mrs. Kirsch’s website at andersen.nmusd.us/tech for some links) so you can master using ALL 10 FINGERS on the keyboard without looking, as well as the 10-key number pad
Practice writing your cursive – maybe in your Lifebook?
Parents, please stop by after school, send a note with your child, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
