I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Ms. Roberts’ 4th Grade Class!! I’m excited to come back to school and meet my new students! I hope they are excited as well.
This year will be different from other years in many ways, and we will all work to make it fantastic. First, I encourage communication between parents and teacher. My email address is sroberts@tooeleschools. Please contact me with any concerns or questions. Also, check out my class web page from time to time and get updates on what is happening in class.
Second, your students will have the wonderful opportunity to have a Chromebook assigned to them for the year. There will many guidelines and rules for students and parents to understand so be sure and look for the information that will be coming your way. Their assignments will be mostly on-line so it will be easy to catch up on any missing work.
Third, the 4th grade is a big step up for students to learn responsibility for their assignments and for learning. I have no doubt that we can accomplish much together! One thing students can be responsible for is a water bottle at school each day.
Next, students will have around 40 minutes of homework each night. 20 minutes of reading—this is vital. They will also have some math problems to refresh their memory on what we learned in class that day. Each week the students will have a spelling list to study. The spelling tests will be on Thursday. Please encourage your student to do his/her homework. It helps so much in the learning and retention process.
Finally, be aware that your student’s grades and missing assignments are easy for you to access on-line through the Tooele School District’s web page. Just go to SIS, set up your own password, and you can follow your child’s progress until they graduate from high school.
