Welcome to our Fourth Grade Page!
The fourth grade team will continue to engage our students during the COVID-19 School Closure via Google Classroom sites for each fourth grade classroom. Daily work will be posted on each respective website. In addition, we will be using Readworks, Zearn, iReady, and Freckle. Your children all have access codes, but if you are in need of these codes and/or your child's usernames and passwords, please email or send a Class Dojo message to your child's teacher. We are looking forward to challenging and engaging our students through our virtual platform.

Due to our transition into Remote Learning online platforms, the 4th Grade Team will focus on assigning engaging and meaningful classwork for the 4th grade students. The classwork we assign is structured to mirror assignments that students would complete throughout a typical school day. Classwork will primarily be posted on Google Classroom. Other platforms that will be used include Zearn, Freckle, and iReady.
Classwork will include ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Social Emotional Learning lessons and assignments. This work will align to our curriculum and help students continue to learn, grow, and meet the 4th grade state standards. Student classwork and progress will be monitored closely by their teacher. Students will receive frequent feedback on their work to ensure that they are receiving individualized comments and communication from their teacher.
Importance of Homework/Classwork:
- Fosters responsibility and independence
- Reinforces skills learned in class
- Helps students become better readers and writers
- Develops study skills and organizational skills
- Homework allows parents to be involved with their child’s learning
