Mr. Forster's Fourth Grade
Same concept written for Common Core testing
The Common Core
Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction and informational texts
Reading and writing grounded in evidence from text
Regular practice with complex text and its academic vocabulary
The Parents Can
The Students Will
• Spend more time on fewer concepts.
• UNDERSTAND why the math works. MAKE the math work.
• TALK about why the math works
• PROVE that they know why and how the math works
• Apply math in real world situations
• Know which math to use for which situation
• Be able to use core math facts FAST
• Be able to apply math in the real world
Students read a true balance of informational and literary texts.
Elementary school classrooms are, therefore, places where students access the world – science, social studies, the arts and literature – through text.
At least 50% of what students read is informational.

Students reach strong foundational knowledge and deep conceptual understanding and are able to transfer mathematical skills and understanding across concepts.
• Make arguments in writing using evidence
• Compare multiple texts in writing
Students in every state will cover the same curriculum

Respect for our students’ privacy is essential. If our students or teachers share information, we ask that you regard this as confidential in and out of school.
All volunteers must complete an application per Board of Ed policy. Those volunteering more than 50 hours/school year also need fingerprints on file in office.
Moonlight and Mythology
Our class has once again been asked to participate in a unique educational grant through LEARN. We are one of only six classes in the state that participate in this and everything is free of charge for students and any parents who would like to join us.
Through this grant we are able to spend time with children from an urban school, Jennings School. We write monthly pen pal letters, create stories, do collaborative illustrations, and many other cultural learning experiences.
We need a room mom/dad!
