Welcome to 4M! I am so excited to be your child’s 4th grade teacher! We have had a very successful few days together. I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know all of my students. They are a wonderful group! This email newsletter is the first of many you will receive during the school year.
This week we have been getting to know each other, learning our routines, and practicing classroom procedures. Planner sheets will come home Monday where your student will write down their homework. Your child will receive a Mitchell Moo-lah dollar (paper money for our monthly auction), each day their planner sheet is signed. You can also jot me a note on there if needed, I have found it is a great communication tool. Every night there is 20 minutes of reading and usually some type of math homework.
I do allow snacks in the afternoon. Please send HEALTHY snacks. I give them 5-10 minutes to eat during our reading/writing block. Also, water bottles are great to have since there isn’t a lot of time to use the water fountain.
Many have volunteered to help in my classroom. Yippee! Thanks so much for your help and support. I am needing volunteers ASAP to help me with our math workbooks. I need pages torn out of 2 different workbooks and stapled and paperclipped. I don’t think I want to try and have the kiddos tear out the pages themselves. I can see lots of tears and tape! Let me know if you are available even tomorrow or Monday to help me out. Thank you!!!
Also, we were going to label our spirals today and I have many kiddos without spirals, expo pens and erasers. Would you mind checking the list of supplies needed for our class? We use 2 composition books and 3 spirals right away.
Please let me know if you have another email address you would like added for your contact information, or if you want one taken off this distribution list. The best way to reach me is by email.
