Dear Fourth Grader,
I am so excited to be welcoming you to Fourth Grade! Tuesday, September 4, 2012 will be the start of a great new academic and social experience. We are going to have a fantastic year together!
I have spent the summer thinking about and putting together great projects, ideas, and units that we will spend the year exploring. So, to get your minds ready for this year, spend some time over these next few weeks thinking about how we can help make Fourth Grade a great year for you. What will your goals be? How can we work together to achieve them? These are some year-long conversations that we will begin as soon as you arrive in September. Don’t worry about not having answers to these questions right away! Our learning experiences and reflections will be our guides to an exciting and enriching year. Every new day or experience will be an opportunity to add something special to our class. While you are waiting for the first day of school to roll around, I hope that you are reading and practicing your addition, subtraction, division and multiplication facts!
On the first day of school please bring in a few books (2-3) that you read this summer. Also, please bring three current pictures of yourself. I can’t wait for our first day together! If you are available on Wednesday August 29th between 10 and 11:00 am please stop by school to say hello!
These are the school supplies you will need if you haven’t ordered a PTA supply box:
