Grade 4

Week of Sept. 23 – 27

Dear Grade Four Families,

It has been another productive and busy week in the Grade Four classroom. The students are starting to get used to our daily routines, and we are now able to focus on learning new things. They are especially loving the use of technology.  They get so excited to use the Chromebooks and Macbooks in class! Just in case you missed the funny thing that happened on Thursday afternoon, I told the kids that we had to finish science and move onto math because they had an assignment to do for math.  They all yelled, “NOOOOOOO!” Then I proceeded to say, “But it’s on Google Classroom.” Then they unanimously yelled, “Yaaaay!!!” We then all burst out laughing!

Your child now has access to their Raz-Kids account.  I told the students that they are to use it for READING and working on their COMPREHENSION SKILLS. For each book, they have a choice to read the book or listen to it being read.  I want the students to always choose to READ the book first.  Then, they are to complete the quiz after reading.  If they do not do well on the quiz, that’s when I want them to go back and LISTEN to the book, then retake the quiz.  If they do well on the quiz, they don’t have to listen to the book. They can move on and choose another book.  The expectation is for the kids to read 20-30 minutes 5 times a week.
