Dr. Robinson - 4th Grade  - Please read the bottom of the page.  Thank you for a wonderful first week of school!

In our classroom, we will utilize 21st century skills daily.  Your child will share daily what they learn through technology any time, any-where.Hopefully your child has worked in dream box all summer as this is a program we will utilize a great deal. They will show you how to go on virtual field trips learning about Virginia history.  Most evenings your child will need to complete an assignment on the computer.  They will electronically forward that assignment to me.  This helps them embrace digital communication in a safe, flexible, effective environment. All students are assigned a number in class.  The assigned number will be used for these submissions.  They never need to put their names on any of these assignments. 

The students will create presentations with animation and sound. Please encourage them to use excel and word as this continues to afford students with opportunities in and out of class to apply technology to develop skills, design and facilitate meaningful learning experiences, thereby encouraging students to create, problem solve, communicate, collaborate, and use real-world skills. 

The goal in our classroom is for each student to become a confident, life-long, independent learner, growing to his or her fullest potential. 

Rosa Lee Carter School is a Positive Behavior Intervention School.  We support the three paws of respecting self, property and others at all time. As a school, we have many initiatives that recognize students who are modeling this behavior. 
 

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.  The success of our classroom comes from open communication and modeling the skills we want students to embrace. I believe it will be a great year and I look forward to working with each of you! 
 
Parents you will receive the following material for your student to keep at home:  math vocabulary cards, science refrigerator cards, Virginia studies refrigerator cards, read and write gold access and reading logs which will be due every Friday.  If you would like an electronic version of these forms please have your student bring in a USB flash drive minimum 8GB.  The students will also have a copy of these items at school in their desks.  Please keep these study materials where your child will have access daily to help in their homework.  They will be required to learn this information throughout the year.  Your child will be tested at the end of the year on all of this material.  I am excited to work with your child. It is going to be a great year.

READING REPORTS - 7 Reports  SHOULD BE COMPLETED BY OCTOBER 30.   This is what has been submitted so far:
student number = number reports submitted
1=3,    2=5,     3=4,    4=6,  5=3,   6=3,  7 = 0,  8=2,  9=1,  10=5,  11=4,   12=6,    13=6,  14=1, 15=1, 16=0, 17=3, 18=1,

for students who have 7 missing each day they should turn one in.  This report is important as it helps students develop summarizing skills, prediction skills and inferring skills. When they are writing the report should be using complete sentences. This reinforces grammar and punctuation.  Please review these reports with your child.  They make great dinner conversation about what the student is reading.   Please contact me if you have any questions.  Thank you for your support. 
 
WHISPER PHONES GO HOME TONIGHT OCTOBER 21ST.  Please have your student practice reading aloud into the whisper phone.  These do need to be returned at the end of the school year as this is a teacher provided item provided by this specific teacher!  Have fun take a turn reading into the phone with your student.  When your student practices reading aloud, they are practicing fluency, rate, tone and voice.  These are important skills as research shows understanding increases as vocabulary increases.
