Entering 4th Grade


Hello New 4th Grade Parents!

Congratulations on a successful journey though third grade! Fourth grade at IRDS is just a few short steps through a connecting doorway, but a series of bigger steps toward taking responsibility for our own learning.

We will be reading many interesting books together, writing in much greater detail, and doing a lot of hands-on projects as we learn about our great State of California.

In the meantime, while you are enjoying family time throughout the summer, please do make sure that your student continues to do some form of reading every single day.

Below you will find a few links to help encourage summer reading. Please also click the accompanying link for a brief writing assignment to be completed at some point over the summer. There you will also find an optional “Summer Reading Bingo” scoresheet to help make reading in a variety of situations more fun.

Have a great summer, looking forward to seeing you in the fall!

Yours truly,

Dear 4th Grade parents,

Mazel Tov to your children and your families on a wonderful year!  In our parent conferences, many of you requested summer work and so I’ve created the attached calendar.  You can always go to KhanAcademy or as well.

Summer is a wonderful time to relax and be with family; however, it can also be a time where a student may loose up to 30% of their learnings from the prior year.  

Because of that statistic, I have assembled a couple resources for you.

1. A reference sheet for you entitled “Ways to Engage in Math” that reminds you how to bring math problems into your regular daily schedule.

2. A list of websites for fun math games:


3. A quick refrigerator monthly calendar of math problems that can help your child retain more of the knowledge they worked so hard to attain.  Consisting of 3 months of calendars, each day there are one to three math problems or a reference to the attached worksheet problems (problems I couldn't fit in a calendar).  You may choose to do as many or as few problems as you are able to; however, I wanted your child to have this resource at their fingertips.

These materials are completely voluntary and do not need to be returned in August.   As your children have downtime, these resources may help you ensure they are working on productive materials during their summertime.  

I look forward to all of your children’s summer stories and watching them grow and flourish again in the next school year!

Have a journey-filled summer,
