Mrs. Spencer's 4th Grade

We are all in this together and we WILL be successful!

Mrs. Spencer's Weekly Message

Wow! I can't believe it is almost May! We are in the home stretch of your 4th grade year. Are you feeling like fifth graders yet? I have missed seeing all of your smiling faces and hearing your awesome stories! It is looking more and more like we may not be coming back this year. I am still working on figuring out a time that we can have a Google meetings so that we all have a chance to say our goodbyes for the year. I will let you know when I have more information.


Just like last week, I want you to remember that these are all suggested activities to help keep you sharp during this time that you are out of school. If they do not all get done that is okay, I just ask that you TRY to do as much as you can.


Please continue to do least do 20 minutes a day on Reading Istations and 20 minutes a day on Math Istations. Remember you have to spend at least 20 continual minutes in order to move on to the next lesson, otherwise you will start over each time.


Also, see if you can get on to Connect ED to read the stories and do some of the skills and strategies assignments.



Have a great week!
Mrs. Spencer
