Guided Reading:
Our main goal for 4th grade reading is to comprehend what we are reading.  Students are finishing their novels and creating a plan for a webpage design used to market their novels online.

IXL Classwork:

Students are assigned IXL as a station during Guided Reading.  If your child does not finish his/her IXL classwork in school, it will be assigned as homework. To complete the assignment, your child needs to go to IXL.com and login.  Then, he/she will choose the assignment under Language Arts. IXL assignments will be counted as reading daily grades. 

Reading Log:   All answers to questions must be written in a complete sentence.  Writing needs to be in cursive. 

Accelerated Reader:     Students will be reading AR books to reach their goals, and they will be rewarded for meeting their goals. Below you will find the link for the student and parent login.

Cursive Writing
Students are expected to complete all work in cursive.  If your child needs to practice, there are several online resources available. Please click on the links below for access to printable cursive practice pages.




We will be working on using appropriate writing conventions.

DOL: Daily Oral Language
Every day your child completes a Daily Oral Language page and checks it with the class. On Wednesdays, we will have a quiz over the previous week's work. 


VOCAB - Links

The students are keeping a packet in their leave-in-moose pocket. They will still do vocabulary notecards for the words that go with the packet.  At the end of the week, they will turn in their packet for a daily grade.

Vocabulary Quiz every Friday -  
Next week it will be on Thursday.

Graded packets will come home Thursday. 

If you study with your child, sign the packet and they will get +5 on their quiz.
