Spelling List Week 1

Spelling lists come home on Friday’s for the following weeks exam. However, the first spelling test will be on September 6th, due to the shortened weeks for Labor Day.

There is spelling homework every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

Our class takes a pretest on Monday, and a Super-Speller Test on Wednesday. If your student passes the Super Speller test, without missing a word, they are excused from the test on Friday!

Spelling words for Week 1.  Short vowel sounds.

Welcome to Fourth Grade!

It has been a great first few days of school! Thank you to everyone who donated supplies to our classroom.

Here are a few important reminders:


We do not currently have not received student planners in our classroom. As soon as our school receives them, planners will come home with students.

Wednesday, August 28th is Back to School Night, from 4-6 PM.

Olympic Day Reminder

This Tuesday, May 7th, is Olympic Day.

Please remember to wear sneakers and dress for the weather. Water bottles will be provided by the PTO, but you are welcome to send a water bottle from home as well.

Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes

One of our 4th Grade literature groups finished “Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes”, by Eleanor Coerr. As part of finishing the book students learned how to fold paper cranes. We also decided to hang the cranes in our room, in the same way Sadako did in the story.

Our Awesome STEM Team!

We had a great time at the IU13 STEM Competition. Our Martic students did a wonderful job representing themselves and the school. If you see them congratulate them on a job well done.

Career and Flip Flop Day

We have had some great dress up days recently. Martic students dressed as teachers, and teachers dressed as students. It was like a Flip Flop Day! Also, on February 22nd we participated in Career Day. All of the students did a great job dressing as a career they respect or aspire to have.
