Summer’s In Full Swing!

Posted on

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time!  I hope you’re also doing some reading and working on your math skills!  I know I have been working on my reading.  I have jointed the Cobb County Library System’s Summer reading challenge.  I’m happy to say that I’ve read for a total of 5 hours so far!  I’m loving thaving the opportunity to sit in my hammock swing and read my book every day!  I’ve just read a very inspirational one and now I’ll be working on some books to get me ready for fifth grade!  I miss you all! 

I hope you’re taking your “flat teachers” with you on your adventures!  Be sure to send us pictures if you do!

I hope you’re having a great summer and I hope we can all get back together very soon!

Fourth Grade Finale!!

Congratulations on completing fourth grade!  This will always be the year that we made history. We should be proud of our determination and efforts, because we proved that no obstacle will stop us from success.

Now it’s time to Slide into Summer!  We strongly recommend that you continue learning this summer.  Here are some summer challenges:                                       

  1. Read a minimum of 3-4 books this summer and practice your reading strategies. Continue with your class ReadWorks, ReadTheory, or Scholastic for reading comprehension practice.
  2. Make sure that you know all your multiplication and division facts before you enter 5th Play DreamBox.  Practice calculations and problem solving.
  3. Write narrative, opinion, and informational essays.
  4. You will have access to Clever all summer, so continue to use this resource.

Of course, summer is a time to relax and have fun too.  Here are just a few ideas your family can do this summer:

  1. Make an ABC booklet about what you did this summer:

Think about all that you will accomplish over the summer and make a book about it.  First, you will need to make a plan: ABC Planning Page.  Use this attached organizer to start planning out the details for each letter of the alphabet. For this ABC book you can decide to do one out of paper or make a digital option using PowerPoint or Adobe Spark!  The options are endless and we cannot wait to see what you created!

  1. Make a DIY slip & slide: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=how+to+make+a+slip+and+slide+at+home&docid=607986434760704615&mid=5A18E753AA86AC8D8E0B5A18E753AA86AC8D8E0B&view=detail&FORM=VIREHT
  2. Make frozen yogurt popsicles:

Don’t Forget!

Don’t forget to complete the PNN application online, no later than Friday, 5/15, if you want an opportunity to be part of the PNN crew next year!  There are lots of positions available!  They need at least 10 anchors, 1 Friday Funnies, 5 producers, 5 camera operators, and several others (sorry, my brain has turned to mush and I can’t remember what else).  We need you!  Please consider being part of the crew!  You would really enjoy it! It’s lots of fun!  You get to work with great people like Mrs. Dean, Mrs. Westbrook, Ms. Stanley, and Ms. Perry.  They even take a trip to the WSB-TV station as well as CNN.  It’s an opportunity you don’t  want to miss!


Last Lunch Bunch with Ms. Perry

Please plan to join Ms. Perry for the last lunch bunch of the year as fourth graders!  In just a few short days, you’ll all be fifth graders!  Wow!  Can you believe it!?  Where has the time gone?  If you’re interested in joining the lunch bunch on Thursday, the information is posted on the Digital Learning page of the Fascinating Fourth Graders Notebook, under Ms. Perry’s Lunch Bunch!  I will make plans to try to attend as well!  We hope to see you there!

I hope all the mamas out there had a fabulous Mother’s Day, even under these circumstances.  I know it was a day to remember for me!  I hope your kiddos treated you like the queens you all are! 

Thank you to everyone who made Teacher Appreciation week the best!  We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful class!  I can’t wait until we can get back together, so we can give and receive all those hugs that we’ve been missing out on!

This week, we’ve got a busy week!  Be sure you check out the Fourth Grade blog for your assignments for the week.  Also, this week, we are having our “Virtual College/Career Week.”  Be sure you download the letter from the counselors here. I have posted a copy of the “reminders” below. 

We look forward to seeing you all on the Zoom calls this week.  Unfortunately, this will be our last week.  Next week, on Monday and Tuesday, you’ll have the opportunity to come and pick up your bag of belongings that were left at school.  Your babies are all bagged up and ready to come home to your loving arms!  I will post the pick up times here.  Mrs. Homer and I are hopeful that we can come to the school and help load the cars.  Please remember, you are not allowed to get out of the car.  Mom or Dad will need to just come into the bus port, open their trunk and someone will put the stuff into your car.  Please email us if you have any questions or concerns!

Welcome!  May the fourth be with you!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  I’m super excited to be watching Star Wars again this evening!  It has become a family tradition.  Also, happy 21st birthday to Mrs. Homer’s oldest, Jared!  We hope you have a great day Jared!  This week, we are back to a choice board for daily activities. 

Be sure you check the fourth grade blog for this week’s choice board.  There is one in English and one in Spanish.  Be sure to check back off and on this week for important information from Dr. Hosey.  There are some things in the works for you to be able to pick up your stuff from school, including your babies!  They will be so glad to see you! 

Dr. Hosey will be sending information through the weekly call out, the daily PNN, or give us information to send out to you.  We look forward to seeing you on the daily Zoom call.  The Zoom link will be posted by 8:45 Monday morning, in the notebook.
