Another school year has come to an end. I believe I speak for both myself and my kiddos when I say it's bittersweet. We are all ready to move on to the next stage in our lives. For them it means a new teacher, new expectations, and new classmates and for me it means another group of amazing kiddos that are excited and ready to learn. I wish all my kids and their families well this summer and I will see you all very soon. Please don't hesitate to email or stop by, I always enjoy helping former students with whatever it may be! You will all be missed!
Summer is always a tough time battling with your student to continue reading. My suggestion is to pick a time of day like bedtime, to get them into a good routine. Rainy days, car rides and appointment waiting rooms are all good times to get those 15-20 mins of reading in. Our school once again wants to reward those students who consistently read over the summer. Your child brought home a reading calendar, write the number of minutes on the calendar and turn back into your 4th grade teacher next year for your reward! Remember, you're a fourth grader now so 200 mins is your goal, way less then our 400 min goal during the year:)
