Beginning this week, your child’s homework packet has a new look!

The cover page has an overview of expected homework practice with a daily schedule.  RAH sheets are now at the back of the packet.  Nightly, students will record their reading.  Please confirm the reading by initialing next to the daily record.  Signed RAH minutes will be counted towards total minutes for the year, and some great rewards can be earned along the way.

Packets are due on Fridays (or the last school day of the week).  New packets will be given on Friday so that RAH minutes may be recorded over the weekend.

Thank you for working with your child to support homework completion, neatness and accuracy.

These first few days we have been enjoying the work of building our classroom community.

Math homework did begin to go home today and it will typically be given Monday through Thursday.  Please look for the blue Homework Folder that students will bring home daily and need to return to school daily as well.  Inside the folder is the student workbook for Module 1 (with an emphasis on place value, addition and subtraction) as well as other math resources to support daily homework.

Thank you in advance for supporting the neatness and accuracy of homework.

Read-at-Home minutes may be recorded on the yellow sheets sent home with Tuesday folders.


Welcome to 4th Grade!

I am excited to begin another school year and get to know what is already a wonderful group of students and families.

The goal of this blog is to provide a resource to families as well as support our work in the classroom.
Please look for updates on events, homework and an overview of what is going on in Room 52.

Thank you,
Mrs. Greenamyer
