Keeping Up With 4B

Miss. Lewis' Grade 4 Newsletter

Welcome!!

Thank you for reading our fourth grade newsletter! My name is Miss. Lewis, and I look forward to a year of learning and exploration. I wanted to provide you with a little information about our class and what we will be focusing on this term, as well as some of the routines we have established together in the classroom.

A little pep talk for teachers and students to get our year started

Kid President's Pep Talk to Teachers and Students!

Virtual Classroom

I will be communicating with you through our class newsletter and I will also be running a classroom blog. This site will help you and your child keep up to date with announcements, find due dates for projects or assignments, and utilize fantastic links to useful websites that connect to the curriculum we are studying in class. Your child will become an expert at using these websites, and will be able to guide you through some of the online interactive learning we do, to enhance our classroom learning. I will do my best to keep this site up to date as far as announcements and due dates go. The links we use will be ongoing, and I will continue to add to them throughout the year. Students can access these links at home, and practice some of the skills we are learning in the classroom! Our website can be found at: http://kidblog.org/MissLewisClass-6


Homework

Completing homework is a learning skill on the report card that needs to be developed and practiced. The actual homework itself will not be graded, however, this is the best way for you to see how your child understands the material being taught in the classroom. I do expect that students are reading either to a family member or independently every night. I will be sending home leveled books with your child to read and complete the corresponding activities.


Use the Agenda

If you need to communicate with me you can always call and leave me a voice message. However, feel free to write notes to me in your child’s agenda. We write in them everyday, and I stamp them before they leave for the day, so I will read notes left by parents, and sign them to show you I have received them.


Reminders

We want to remind families that we have several students and staff in the school with life-threatening allergies to peanuts, nuts and other foods. We ask that you help care for these individuals by choosing lunches and snacks for your child that are nut-free. Also in keeping with the spirit of the Healthy Eating in Schools policy, we ask that when celebrating birthdays families consider donating a book to the classroom library or giving small gifts such as a pencil or a sticker. Please no loot bags and sweets.
