Welcome to 4th grade. I am hoping that your child had a great 1st week at school. This week we will be getting started with some review as I work on finding out where your child is academically. Next week we will be starting regular curriculum. The Homework folder will be going home Tuesday with review work for them to complete, have you sign and return on Friday. The homework folder is replacing the weekly reading log that was typically done at home and is meant to take about 10 minutes a night to complete. We will still be doing a reading log, but it is part of their small group rotations during reading. Students have been told that they need to accomplish classwork at school where I am available to help them, so all they will have to focus on is the homework folder when at home.
