OUR SCHOOL IS CLOSED UNTIL APRIL6.  PLEASE SEE NOTICES BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION.

Grade 4 (Mrs. Wall)

 

Dear Parents and Students,

 

* Please sign or initial your child's agenda every night.  They write important information as well as their homework assignments daily.  Thank you!

Also, please make sure your child completes his/her homework and returns it in their yellow homework folder every day.  Thank you again!

 

Just a few notes about the upcoming week:

I sent home the information for our March book reports .  Your child needs to choose either a fable, Legend, or Myth.  This is a 5 paragraph book report that should be written neatly or typed.  The student should continue working on these.  They will be due on March 31st.

I also sent home a thick packet that explains the 4th Grade Invention project that we do for the Education Fair on April 15th.  Please pay close attention to due dates.  I went over the packet with the students on Friday and will hand out the journals they are to use for the projects on Monday.  This project will count for 2 Science grades.  The next due date for the Invention project is Monday, March 30th when we return to school.  Happy Inventing!!

Because of Coronavirus Pandemic, we will be closed down for 3 weeks.  Monday, March 16th Parents may come in to pick up the supplies and materials their child will need to complete the assignments I give every day. Pick up time will be between 10-2pm.   I will NOT be utilizing Google Classroom.  This website will be where I post the assignments daily. Please don't go ahead in the lessons.  Each lesson builds upon the lessons before it.  We don't do that in school, I don't want or expect your child to do that at home.  I do expect your child to still be working on their book report and Inventions projects in addition to our daily assignments.   Upon our return, I will need your child to bring back everything that was sent home.  Thank you!

Also, No April Book Reports will be assigned.  Your March book report as well as your entire invention project will be due upon our return to school.

***I will be leaving the previous days' assignments below the present days' assignments in case you need to see what was due that day.

 

****I told the students on Friday, since we are no longer having an Invention Convention or Education Fair, the Invention project is no longer MANDATORY.  If they would still like to do the project, they are welcome to for extra credit in Science.  However, they do not need to, it will not affect their grades!

**The March book report is still due however.Please email me the completed book reports by Tuesday at 11:59pm!  There will be no April book report but the students are welcome to start reading for their May book reports that will not be due until the last school day of May.  It is a free choice. However-NO GRAPHIC NOVELS!! A little hint about the project?-They will be creating a time capsul!

 I am no longer posting assignments on this website.  Please check our Google Classroom and your emails DAILY!! I still have 3 of you that need to join! I have also sent parents and students their invitation to join our Zoom meeting tomorrow morning at 930! We will be taking our spelling pretest together, so make sure you have a pencil or eraseable pen and a sheet of notbook paper folded in half like we do in school . Also, 4th graders-please check my message about our new rules for our zoom lessons. I'd like you to leave me an "ok" to show me you read and understand the rules. Thank you!! "See" you tomorrow!!

Also, please join Google Classroom.  You all should have received an email to join.  I have been posting the assignments this week in there and you are able to turn them in for me to correct and return to you!  I already received a couple of today's spelling assignments! Thank you and great job, kiddos!

I have created a Google Classroom to post assignments in! I have invited all the students to join using their school email addresses!  Please Check your emails!
