Dear Parents,

Congratulations! We are on our final stretch! The last week of 4th grade! 

Great job everyone! Thank you for all your support and patience as we tackled this Crazy Covid Year! Although there may have been some struggles here and there, our students completed the entire 4th grade curriculum and are prepared to tackle 5th grade next year. Way to Go!

Some things to finish off the year:

  1. Please check around the house this weekend and make sure to return any  school textbooks you may still have. Remote students will no longer need their textbooks this next week either. Please return: Processes that Shape Earth,Using Natural Resources for Energy, Gifts of the Gods, Understanding Greek Myths,  Robinson Crusoe. 

  2. Tuesday is Science Innovation Day. 4th graders have worked hard to create games made out of recycled materials to teach about their assigned natural resource. We can’t wait to have fun playing these innovative and educational games!

  3. Wednesday: Desk clean-up and clear out. Please send an extra sturdy grocery type bag for your child to bring his/her belonging home. 

  4. Thursday is a Beach Theme Day. Students can bring beach towels to lay out on, and books and board games to enjoy with their classmates at our carpeted beach front classrooms. Please no electronic games. We will have final class meetings with a special class awards ceremony, sign memory books, and end with a Karaoke sing-along and popsicles.  

  5. Music performance  A peek into what Ms. Carbone’s class has been doing in music this quarter!

From Music Class:


As February came to a close, the fourth graders learned about the renowned tap dancer Bill "Bojangles" Robinson in Music class. He was one of multiple musicians we learned about in celebration of Black History Month. Rap-a-Tap Tap is a wonderful book written by Leo and Diane Dillon that shows and tells about Bojangles and his life. The fourth graders used the rhythmic refrain in this book to create their own short melodies. We then chose one to learn together as a class and practiced reading the story aloud and playing the refrain together on the Orff instruments. This project was a lot of fun!


Here is a Google Drive link to the finished product: 



And here is a link to a Google Slides presentation with the words and illustrations from the book: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MON3GzyCkcM9XQEkNSTBOWtvIiSVOAV_/view?usp=sharing


Despite it being a bit of an unusual year in the Music classroom, these students are making wonderful progress. I am very proud of them!


Thank you so much for passing this along to your class email list!

Dear Parents,

Once again we would like to say how impressed we were with the 4th grade attendance during our two Remote Snow Days this week. Great job 4th graders!

Please check in with your child about their Opinion Letters that are due on Monday. These letters follow the 4 paragraph essay format. They are writing a letter to the Sons of Liberty from the perspective of a colonist and sharing their opinions on the Boston Tea Party. They are quoting and citing evidence from two of our class texts or an article in their workbook. They have a checklist for homework asking for a peer/adult to help them revise. I appreciate your support helping your child with this assignment before turning in  their final letters.

Have a great weekend!

Dear Parents,

It’s conference time again! 

In the fall we had partial student led conferences as students created and shared their goals with you. Our February Conferences are set up so students lead their entire conference. We will be working the next couple weeks in class preparing. Students will be reflecting on their progress and creating an agenda so you have a thoughtful conference. This is an amazing opportunity to celebrate all that your child has learned so far in fourth grade. They will create new goals or revise past goals to work on throughout the rest of the year.  Evidence of their work on these goals will then be featured in an end of year portfolio. Your child will present his/her conference to you prior to your Zoom meeting time. Please sign up on the RMAE website or use the links below. .

Student Led Conferences:

Student’s Role

  • Being responsible for reporting how well they are doing in school.

  • Learning to communicate.

  • Learning to evaluate their work honestly and fairly.

  • Becoming accountable for work and behavior.

  • Learning organizational and leadership skills.

Teacher’s Role

  • Guiding students in evaluating and selecting work.

  • Teaching organizational skills.

  • Helping students and offering support as they plan, prepare, and organize.

  • Being available during conferences and intervening if necessary.

Parent’s Role

  • Actively listen.

  • Ask questions that encourage your child to explain more about their learning process.

  • Compliment your child with positive comments that encourage learning and emphasize what your child does well.

  • Ask what they need to accomplish their goals by encouraging them to talk about specific behaviors.

  • Ask what support they need from you to achieve their goals.

November 6, 2020

Dear Parents,

We would like to say thank you to all of you who have been cautious keeping your children home when they are not feeling well. In order to support everyone, we are going to start assigning work to all fourth graders on Google Classroom. This just means, work will be available in case students need to access work from home. Students in person will not need to complete the work on Google Classroom. This will just allow greater flexibility if the need arises that your child needs to stay home. Everyone will now have access to the material that follows our Weekly Schedule and students can continue to stay on top of their assignments.

Thank you,

Tracee and Deb

P.S Remember that next Friday, 11/13, it will be very important to pick up the next set of books and the workbook for Module 2 Extreme Settings for language arts.

Dear Parents,

Happy Halloween. We had a blast doing pumpkin math, poetry readings, bat activities, decorating our rooms for Sleepy Hollow and watching the movie while eating our treats. Thank you to everyone who sent in items to make it a spooktacular day!

Tracee and Deb

Weekly Schedule 11/2-11/6


Dear Parents,

Congratulations to our wonderful 4th graders. They have now completed one-fourth of fourth grade! Great work!

Homework reminders:

Please remember to check in with your child nightly in math and language arts. 

Students should bring their Go Math workbooks home each night. When their homework is completed, have them share one problem from the front and one from the back to explain to you. If they cannot explain the problem correctly, check another problem. This is a quick way to learn about what your child is learning and help if they are confused about the new concept. Also verbalizing their new learning shows a greater understanding. 

Our Wit and Wisdom language arts program has fluency homework most weeks. This requires students to reread passages several times each night and have an adult listen and sign off on their reading practice. This week they needed to find a poem to practice for next week. If your child has not found one yet, please help them find one they would enjoy. Students will share these next Friday in class. I encouraged them to also bring props as they share, memorize it and even act it out if they can. 

30 Book Challenge: As the quarter checkpoint, your child should have at least 7 books completed. In order to meet the goal of 30 books, reading 30 minutes each night is highly recommended.  If your child needs another copy of the challenge packet it can be found on our Google Classroom.

Tracee and Deb

 Weekly Schedule 10/26-10/30


Dear Parents,

Halloween will be celebrated at RMAE on Friday October 30.  Students can wear costumes ( following our school policy) , personal treats may be brought  for an afternoon snack, activities will be integrated with our regular learning day, and we’ll end with a final room decorating activity to transform our classrooms into Sleepy Hollow. Please look for more details from our amazing Classroom Coordinators. 

Please note the Remote Learning Plan is now listed as our Weekly Schedule. This document is available to ALL parents. This is our fourth grade schedule for the week which anyone can access if there is an absence or just to check in on what is happening in the class.

Howdy families,

Another fabulous week with your kiddos! We were so impressed with the fourth graders while taking their World Mountain Performance Assessment. They worked so diligently to write very detailed paragraphs in the same style as they are learning in the Wit and Wisdom Language Arts curriculum. Way to go! We are now onto science and learning Structures and Functions of Living things. Ask your child about the celery experiment. Just a quick reminder for remote learners to please return their Social Studies books from Maps and Mountains. 

Enjoy the beautiful weekend!

Weekly Class Newsletter for 9/4/20


Dear 4th grade families,

The first two weeks has been great with your children on campus.  They are full of wonder and eager to learn.  We’ve also been very impressed with their kindness.  Thank you for raising such wonderful kids.

The past two weeks have gone smoothly.  Yet we continually reflect to improve.  In order to best meet the needs of our students, we are making a slight change to the fourth grade schedule.  Starting on Tuesday, Mrs. Vickery will teach both classes language arts and Mrs. Carbone will have math.  This is the same model as fifth grade.  We’ve attached the new schedule times to this newsletter.

The students will remain in their core classroom and the teachers will switch.  This allows the students to stay comfortable in their own environment and be at their own desk.  

We are excited to implement this model to better meet the needs of our students.

 Hi Parents,

 It’s been an exciting week! We are learning our schedules, we’ve learned to keep our masks on, we washed our hands at least 4 to 5 times a day,  things have just been groovy! Your kids are adapting well, to the new adventure we call school! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
