Thursday June 4, 2020: OPTIONAL GRADE 4 MATH – LESSON 1.1

Dear Parents and Students,

Please find below the GOMATH INTRODUCTION TO GRADE 4    Lesson 1.1

This is entirely optional and is posted just for the motivated learner.  This is not an assignment given by me.   

Please also use the IXL – GRADE 4  platform from here moving forward.  There really is no reason to continue at the Grade 3 level.    Look for areas of interest and use it as a nice introduction for September.    The membership will be valid all summer.  Make time to enrich and prepare for September.   

Best of luck!!!


Wednesday June 3, 2020: Religion/Grammar – Time Capsule

Dear Parents and Students,

This will be our last required submission for the Time Capsule. Please complete pg. 10 Interview Your Parents.

It would be wonderful if all the pages were completed, however, I am aware that some students have reached their limit.

More information coming on closing up the Time Capsule.  Please make sure you mark…..Do Not Open Until May 2025.

Great job on this assignment.  The students did an amazing job.   

Wednesday June 3, 2020: Math Assignment

Dear Parents and Students,

This will be our last assignment for Math for the year.  I ask that the students please complete pages 427 and 428 Chapter 10 Review/Test.   

This will be the soft ending I mentioned in my email on Sunday.   That means there is no test for the students.  I would simply like the students to finish this chapter.

Tomorrow and until Friday, I will post an optional IXL – Grade 3 and Grade 4 assignment for those who are motivated to finish the week.   You do not need to send in those submissions as they come up on my Teacher Dashboard.   

Great job by all in the Math content area.  I am very proud of the students.
