Welcome to Mrs. LaViolette’s Fourth Grade Class!
I’m sure summer has flown by for you, and it’s hard to believe that Wednesday we come back to school. I am looking forward to a fantastic year of learning with you. Although I’ve been teaching for a while now, I still get excited about meeting a new group of students! We’ll be spending time next week settling in and becoming a learning community, but before then I’m going to ask you to do a little homework to prepare for the first day. Mainly, enjoy the weekend, but if you would collect the following items for Tuesday, that would be terrific! I know it is going to be a great year!
- A healthy snack and a water bottle. We have a long morning before lunch, so you may get hungry and thirsty.
- Your favorite book. This can be any book that you love. Please be prepared to tell me and your classmates why it’s your favorite book.
- A book to read in class. If you are in the middle of a book right now, bring that, or bring one you would like to read.
- A sense of wonder and curiosity. What have you always wanted to learn? What makes you ask questions? This year we’ll be working on research and following our wonders and interests.
