Each fourth grade student is responsible to read 20 minutes nightly for a minimum of five nights a week. The reading can include assigned class reading or material your child chooses.It is recommended that students practice Math facts 15 minutes nightly. I will pass out the Reading/Math Log at the beginning of each month. It should be returned to class on the date specified at the top of the page.
Included in our morning schedule will be a brief snack period. A healthy snack is suggested such as fruit, cheese and crackers, pretzels or vegetables.
Every quarter the children will explore a different genre and have a book project. The project and requirements will be sent home at the beginning of the quarter. This is a great way for the children to be exposed to a variety of books and to enhance reading for meaning as well as enjoyment.
