     Dear  Fourth Grader,                                    ,

                I hope you are enjoying the last days of summer vacation. Since school ended I have been enjoying time with my family, going to the beach and working hard in my garden.  I have also taken a class to learn ways to help kids learn and read lots of books. I can’t wait to hear about what you have been doing to make memories.

                Fourth grade is a really exciting year. We will read and write a lot! You will learn how to do long multiplication and division problems and even add and subtract fractions! We have very engaging life and Earth science units. You’re going to get so much smarter! There are lots of great opportunities for fourth graders at our school. You will sing in chorus, play an instrument and have the opportunity to be on the Math Olympiad. We will have Mrs. K’s class as our buddies.

                In fourth grade you are expected to read and practice math facts every night. We have a geography assignment due on Friday each week, and have a math practice paper mostly every night. We will begin each day with Morning Meeting and sometimes have fun activities. It will be a lot of hard work, but also fun to be a fourth grader.  

                I am so excited to start this school year! Teaching fourth grade is my dream job, I consider myself lucky to be able to do it again this year. This will be my TWENTY-FIFTH time teaching fourth grade, but every year is as exciting as my first. My favorite things in class are meeting and read aloud. I have high expectations of my students, but I am fair and kind. I live in Somerset, Massachusetts with my husband and my fat white cat, Whitey and our new kitten Larry Bird who I found under a shed. . I like to read, cook and spend time with my family and friends.

                I’ll see you soon, my new friend. Be sure that you have a memory of some fun that you had this summer. I can’t wait to be your fourth grade teacher!
