Welcome to Fourth Grade!!!!
Own the school year like a HERO!!!
Please make sure you check our Class Dojo news feed for importnant information. This is where you will find out what is going on in Room #13.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com
*PARENTS: Please sign your child's planner and reading log every night and make sure they have completed all homework written for each day.
We will begin with our first unit in Reader's Workshop- "Building A Reading Life." We will learn about our classroom library, choose "just right" books, and begin filling out our reading logs.
Homework: Read 25 minutes each night, and record your reading in your planner.
Reading Logs: We will use Reading Logs every day to monitor our reading. These logs will be used in class during independent reading and to record their reading at home each night. Our goal is to reach between 30-40 minutes of reading a night. We will increase our reading to 30 minutes each night soon. By ensuring that your child is reading every night, you are helping your child increase their reading stamina and grow as a reader. Thank you for your support at home!
Each student will have individualized lists of spelling words. These word cards will be cut out each week and stored in their Word Study notebook. Nightly homework is not required, but any activities not finished in class will need to be completed at home that night. We will be on a 7 day schedule with each list, and complete practice activities in class each day. Spelling tests will be on the 7th day of our cycle, and will be written in your child's planner the day before.
We will begin with our first unit in Writer's Workshop which will focus on writing a personal narrative. We will choose a small moment that has happened in our lives and write a story about it.
We will begin with Topic 1 which will focus on understanding place value. In addition, please begin practicing basic math facts at home right away. Flash cards are excellent tools for practice. They can be bought for $1 at the Dollar Tree and/or other dollar stores.
Homework: Each night, your child will complete a practice worksheet on a skill learned in class that day.
IMPORTANT: Fourth graders need to know their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts quickly and accurately. We will review with addition and subtraction, and move on to multiplication and division once those skills are refreshed. We will be practicing all week and will have a quiz every Friday. Please review the facts nightly. Flash cards and the IXL online math program are excellent tools.
**It is highly recommended viewing the website below to become familiar with your child's textbook. The site has wonderful videos to teach each lesson, as well as worksheets and other practice materials.

Welcome Back to School!
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Rosenauer community. I am thrilled to share this journey with you! The year ahead will be filled with many opportunities for your child. Most of the activities and routines I plan to create with the class, allowing them to feel like the classroom is their space. However, there are a few routines I plan to put in place, which will help keep the classroom running smoothly and you (the parents!) in the loop!
Theme: Our theme this year is "Heroes". What's your Superpower?
Agendas: Each morning agendas will be checked by the teacher. Students will write any reminders in the agenda at the end of each day. Please check your child’s agenda each day after school. This is a great way to keep in touch with me.
School Supplies: Although we ensure that the classrooms are well-stocked with all the essentials needed for day-to-day learning, I appreciate that some students like to use their own personal set of school supplies. If that is the case, please ensure that your child has scissors, pencils, pencil crayons, a sharpener with a lid, a glue stick, eraser and a pencil case! If you could label all your child's belongings, it would be so greatly appreciated! Thanks!
E-mail and website: With everyone’s busy schedule, I know technology can be a quick and easy way to stay connected. My class website will be growing as the year progresses. On it you will find class information, schedules, special events and due dates! Be sure to bookmark it, as I expect you will be checking it quite often! You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Email is likely the quickest way to get in touch with me, but if you would prefer a phone conversation, just email me your phone number and a preferred time to call you and I will do my best to reach you as soon as possible.
Looking forward to a memorable and exciting year!
