Juicy Nibble

As the sun begins to set on the summer, I hope that you will take some time to enjoy your final vacation days before the school year begins.  Placement letters went home on August 16th and emails to families in Room 23 went home today, August 16th.  Please read the letter I have for you and complete the Flip grid assignment. I am headed to the beach to enjoy the waves and a good book!  I will see you soon!

Suggested Supply List

**This list is also available on our blogs and the grade level Facebook Page**

Dear 4th Grader and family,

We are looking forward to meeting you in August and we wanted to help you get ready for your fourth grade year!  Below is a suggested list of supplies for fourth grade, many of which you can find at home.  Due to the limited space in the desks, we ask that students NOT bring large binders or bulky pencil cases to school.

This is a suggested supply list. Materials will be provided by the school for students who begin the school year without school supplies.

Thank you and have a great summer!

Graduation Edition-My 4th graders from 2014-2015

 These seniors were in my 4th grade class during the 2014-2015 school year.  They are a WONDERFUL group of people who are kind, creative and fun to be around.  They have great plans for the future and will do amazing things I am sure!  Go set the world on fire, Ladybugs! I am PROUD of you!

  Michael, Andrew, Ravin, Nick, Lily and Sami all came to Room 23 to talk about life, their future plans and to give advice to the current 4th graders. Check out what they had to say!

A Big Bite


March DID come in like a lion and it doesn’t seem to be going out like a lamb just yet.  It’s weather in New England and we just love it!

We started our week with an all school performance from the Ammaya Dance & Drum Group.  We were able to have this wonderful performance as a result of a Town of Franklin Cultural Council grant; it was awesome!

English Language Arts (ELA) MCAS will be next Wednesday and Thursday.  The work that we do all year prepares us for the MCAS but we have spent some time looking at old tests so that the students will be familiar with the format and the different types of questions that may be asked.  We are also continuing to read The Elephant in the Room which the students love.  If you haven’t read it you should give it a try; so many good lessons to learn from this book! 

The final speech of the year was a success!  It has been so rewarding to see each student grow in the area of public speaking.  This is such a challenging skill and the students have done very well with it.  We are proud of their progress!

We have started to learn about geometry with a focus on lines, segments and rays this week. We will continue to learn more about angles in the upcoming week. 

The children are enjoying learning about our great nation by learning all about the southeast.  Be careful, there may be a road trip in your future!

Make sure you check out our latest Podcast episode-we have published 7 episodes so far!

Have a great weekend, watch out for the tricks and pranks tomorrow!
