Building Brick By Brick

Reading is a skill, not a natural talent. To learn any skill children need: opportunity, support, and time.


           
 
Message from the Teacher:

Parents/ Guardians, 

I am Ms. Anderson, your child's 4th grade ELA Teacher, and I'm delighted to have your child in my class. I am looking forward to a very successful year and I know you are too! This is my fifth year teaching 4th grade, and I enjoy every minute of it! I have high expectations for your child and I will do all that I can to help your child achieve those expectations. You can help too by assisting your child with their homework and helping them stay motivated. 

We love volunteers! Let me know if you are interested. There is always something that needs to be done either in the classroom or can be taken home and completed and brought back to school. Any help provided is appreciated!

Please note that if you ever have any comments, questions, or concerns I am available. I love building relationships with my students and their parents. I am available by phone, email , and face to face (by appointment only please).

-Ms. Anderson

This site is great for keeping track of your child's reading level! The dashboard of this site tracks your child's progress as the year progresses. The books on this site are read to your child while the words are displayed on the screen. Once they have completed a book, students must complete the quiz. When students read the book and take the quiz (scoring an 80% or higher) it counts toward their reading goal.

This website is a great resource for practice for all academic subjects. It allows students to work on specific skills when needed.

This site has a great collection of books read by well known celebrities. 
Watch these videos with your child and use the question stems to begin a meaningful conversation about the important events in the book.
