Welcome to Fourth Grade!
Our team understands that in fourth grade students begin to define themselves in terms of opinions, beliefs and values. During this year of tireless activity and ever expanding
interests, fourth graders need security, understanding, encouragement
and the opportunity to excel. The classroom community provides fourth
graders with opportunities to work on creative, self-initiated tasks,
resolve conflicts with appropriate strategies, listen attentively and
follow directions as well as assume the initiative in seeking help when needed. Our team departmentalizes so provide differentiated instruction to meet the needs of ALL of our learners.
We look forward to working with all fourth graders and nurturing their growth and academic discovery.
4th Grade Homework Policy: Your students will have homework every night. Arlington Public Schools requires that students have a maximum of 60 minutes of homework, plus an addition minimum of 30 minutes of reading. Students are expected to also practice their math facts nightly.
