4th Grade Update

Week of March 16

Update on this Week

We know many of you have questions about what to do this week and how the next few weeks will go. We will update you as soon as we have more information. This is uncharted territory for all of us! Please continue watching redoakisd.org, the Red Oak ISD app, and your email for information from the district.


For now, here are some resources you can use at home to continue to support your child's learning.


ELAR: Education Galaxy, SORA (both of these are under the Students tab on redoakisd.org. Click on Digital Subscriptions, and these are there, along with everything else your child can access.)


Science: Here is a list of fun, hands-on activities you can do with your child: https://www.weareteachers.com/4th-grade-science-experiments/


Math: https://www.khanacademy.org

Important News

We began targeting instruction based on skills before Spring Break. Some students' schedules might change. The goal is to support each student for their Writing STAAR assessment in April. If you have any questions about our new schedule, please let us know.

Important Dates

Tuesday, March 24: Spring Pictures

Friday, March 27: Hawk Assembly at 8:15

Monday, March 30: Staff Day (No school for students)

Reminders

Your child is bringing home some extra practice today. This supports what we are doing in the classroom. Please take a look at it with your child. They will get the packet on Monday, and it will be due the following Monday (or the first day of the next week).


Feel free to come eat with your child at lunch! Our lunch time is from 12:00-12:30 every day. Please remember that if you bring food, you may share this with only your child.


Fridays are jean days with a Hawk spirit shirt. Woohoo!


We love celebrating birthdays! If you would like to send something for your child to share with the class for his or her birthday (cupcakes, etc.), please remember that we celebrate at the end of the day. Please drop off any birthday items at the front office, and we will celebrate as a class at the end of the day!
