Welcome to 4th Grade! It is going to be an amazing year to be a 4th grader at McKinley! I'm so looking forward to working with all of the students and their families this school year!
Throughout the school year, if you ever have questions, please don't hesitate to send an email or call me and I will be in touch with you as soon as possible. Emailing is definitely the easiest way to communicate.

Homework ~ You should expect that your child will have homework every Monday thru Thursday evening. Your child should be writing their homework down every day (they do have time in class) on their homework sheet and that MUST be signed by an adult in the home. When the homework is completed, it should be placed in their blue folder and right into their bookbag. This is great practice with responsibility and being prepared as a McKinley Mariner.
Once students are in 4th grade, basic addition and subtraction facts should be automatic. If your child is not fluent with adding/subtracting (meaning they can look at the problem and instantly tell you the answer...they don't have to "figure it out"), then please do them a huge favor and give them your time every day to practice. Fourth grade is when your child will be mastering multiplication/division facts as well. The only way your child will learn these facts is with follow up practice at home to reinforce all the work we are doing with them in school.
Reading ~ Reading ~ Reading ~ Reading
Parents, please - please - please make sure that you are encouraging your child to read every single day. You can't improve in an area if you don't practice that skill often. Reading doesn't have to be with just a book....they can read the newspaper, magazines, recipes, menus, board game directions, ingredients, newsletters and info that comes home regularly from the school, etc. Once your child has read, have them tell you about it so you can monitor that they are understanding what they are reading. Many families still have bedtime read aloud
time. Reading chapter books that are at a higher reading level than your child's oral reading level is a great idea since their listening/comprehension level is higher. Plus, this is such an awesome bonding time with your family!
