WELCOME TO 4TH GRADE Room 301

Dear Families and Students,

Welcome to fourth grade!  I am so happy you are in my class this year at Sheridan Elementary School!  My name is Mrs. Robin Parker and I am excited to be your child’s fourth grade teacher.

I have taught at Sheridan for 27 years and I truly love children and teaching!

I hope you are excited to begin fourth grade because this will be a fun, fabulous and fascinating year of learning!  Throughout the year, we will strengthen and expand our skills as readers, writers and mathematical problem-solvers as we tackle new concepts and challenges in all academic areas. 

We will read, discuss and write about intriguing new topics to refine and improve our literacy skills. 

In social studies, we will explore the history of Minnesota, learn more about our government and study the regions of the United States. Get ready to stretch your marvelous math skills as we delve even more deeply into place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, estimation, geometry and more.

We will explore

new science concepts and experiments during the school year. Your child will learn about the practice of science and engineering, properties of matter (solids, liquids, gases), energy (heat and electromagnetism), earth materials such as rocks and minerals, water cycle, germs and diseases, and human influences on Earth. These are just a few of the interesting and captivating experiences awaiting you in the year ahead!       

In preparation for a successful year, I ask that you kindly purchase the attached list of supplies for school. This list is a general fourth grade supply list. Please refer to this list when purchasing supplies for the school year. Please remember to bring all of your supplies and all school forms as soon as possible. This will help us get organized so we can dive right into learning.                                     

I believe that open communication between home and school is very important! I will be communicating through emails, newsletters, weekly homework forms and quick notes.

Most importantly, please remember to bring your enthusiasm for learning, a positive attitude, and a sense of humor, caring heart and willingness to work hard. With these qualities in place, we can accomplish fantastic feats in fourth grade! 

Your fourth grade teacher,
