Summer Review Packets

Happy Summer!  I hope your first week of summer was relaxed!  I wanted to share some resources for those of you who have requested summer practice. Here are 2 awesome resources for Math and ELA that will be great for summer.  I will provide a prize for those who complete it over the summer and return it to me when we return back to school!  For some of the math, we didn’t get a chance to learn all of this material yet, so your kiddo (and maybe you) will need to research on how to work the problems.

Week of May 18th-20th (through the end of summer)

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.

As a reminder, pick up for school supplies, belongings, medication, book drop off and a special gift from me will be Monday and Tuesday: Schedule for pick up.

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 grade. 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!
  2. Make a DIY slip & slide: Instructions for the Slip & Slide
  3. Make frozen yogurt popsicles: Recipe Link
  4. Rainy Day Activities: Rainy Day Fun

The possibilities are endless!  Enjoy your summer!

End of Year Party

It was so fun to celebrate our school year together in our class party!  As promised, I wanted to share the video I made for the kids.   I’ll post again and email on Sunday night with ideas and suggestions for summer routines.  Thank you again for an awesome year!

Good morning!

I just wanted to reach out and tell you that I am loving what your kids are sharing with me.  They are working so hard and applying their knowledge.  I am impressed with those who are persevering through all their assignments!  It makes my teacher heart so happy!

I also want to say a huge thank you to all the parents for your help.  You have had to step into a role that you may not have been expecting and also support your children through a pandemic that none of us could have prepared for.  There have been so many updates, challenges and changes.  You are my heroes and I appreciate you very much!

Have a great weekend and let’s finish these last 2 1/2 weeks strong!

Sincerely,

Dr. Caracelo
