Fourth graders need to develop good study habits, responsibility and organizational skills.
It will help a great deal if a particular time and place is set aside each day for quiet reading and homework. This year, math, reading, and writing homework will be assigned nightly, and should be returned completed the following morning. Your child will soon be bringing home a book at his/her reading level. In addition to the leveled book, your child will need to select and read books (chapter books) at home. This reading should take approximately 30minutes.
Each day, your child will bring home a purple "Travel Folder.”
This folder will contain important school and community information as well as your
child’s work. Parents should check the travel folder daily for student behavior and homework.
The "Travel Folder” includes a homework chart and should be signed and returrned

I love volunteers! You, as parents, can make this a rewarding year for the children.
You are the greatest resource to our boys and girls at Gardendale Elementary.
