I am so excited to be your child's fourth grade teacher. I do hope you have enjoyed your fourth grade experience so far and are excited for what is to come. On this page I hope to explain some of what goes on in our classroom. If at any time you have questions please contact me! My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Your child will be required to read for 20 minutes 4 nights a week each month. Their reading must be recorded daily with the title and pages in their agenda at the top or bottom of that day. Agenda logs will be checked every day and will be taken for a monthly grade. Please help your child to remember to record their reading and please make sure you sign it.
Communication between our school and your home is very important. Please be sure to make it a priority to check your child's agenda each day. Any homework pages or important papers will be sent home in the agenda. Also, please be sure to use this folder to send me any important notes and papers from home. If your child has been sick and you send an absence excuse, please be sure to write this on a separate piece of paper and attach this to your child's agenda.
This year we will be using “tickets” for positive reinforcement. Students will receive a “ticket” at the end of each day unless they received a “Think Sheet.” Tickets will also be awarded during special occasions. Students will collect these “tickets” until the end of each month, cashing them in for a monthly coupon.

We will be using data notebooks this year to keep up with weekly work, tests, and progress reports. These will be sent home on Mondays. Please be sure to go over your child’s work with them each week and sign the signature page in the front of the notebook. Please leave all work in the notebook. Progress reports will be sent home in the middle of each grading period. Each Friday your child will be writing a letter to you discussing what we have done in class for the week. Feel free to respond to the letter in the data notebook. Students love it when parents write back!
