Week of April 27-May 1

Hi 4th Grade Students and Families,

Thank you again for another week of remote learning and submissions of work.  I hope that you all continue to be safe and well.   I continue to enjoy receiving the creative work that your children are sharing with me.  Thank you so much for all that you are doing at home.  I have been helping struggling students remotely in various ways, so just reach out to me if you need help or clarification with anything.

NEW learning assignments for the Week of April 27th-May 1st

Reminder, there are 2 ways you can access the NEW learning assignments for
April 27-May 1.  

#1: Penn Manor’s Remote Learning site


PLEASE NOTE:  If you navigate from the district remote learning site, you will need to MAKE A COPY of each document before writing on them.  To do this, go to FILE, and scroll down to MAKE A COPY. Then you will work on that copy and will be able to SHARE it with me. (kelley.groff@pennmanor.net)

 #2:  Google Classroom (This way may be easier as you DO NOT need to remember to Make a Copy if you complete the work from here- that part has already been done for you!)

Students can also access the activities on Mrs. Groff’s Google Classroom page, or our 4th Grade Hambright Shared Learning Google Classroom page.  Once there, click on CLASSWORK at the top, and find the activities for the week.  Click on the activity and the document that you can write on will come up.  When you are finished, SHARE with me. (kelley.groff@pennmanor.net)

Optional Schedule:  Below is an OPTIONAL schedule with you for next week’s learning activities.  You may choose to use it, or not.  I just want to share it in case any fourth graders and families could benefit from it.  If it’s not needed, simply ignore.  Continue to work through the activities at a pace that works best for you and your family.

Week of April 20th-24th – Suggested Schedule of Assignments


  • All assignments can be found on the Remote Learning Website OR on Google Classroom. Use either avenue to access assignments.  
  • The assignments below are ALL due by Sunday, May 3rd. If you are unable to complete them by then, simply email your teacher to let me know.
  • These assignments will be recorded as RECEIVED (but not graded) in Sapphire.
