Weekly Overview 

Week of August 22nd - August 25th

Welcome back to the first week of school! I hope that everyone had an enjoyable summer and is ready for the start of another amazing year of learning! I am very please that Ms. Grace from Share & Care will be partnering with me this year in 4th grade. 

This first week in 4th grade is all about coming together as a classroom community. We will be focused on getting to know each other, learning about our classroom (i.e. procedures, routines, responsibilities, etc.), identifying our academic strengths & opportunities, establishing some personal challenge goals, and the very important work of building our 4th grade classroom community.

Homework is focused on reinforcing our nightly reading routine (minimum of 30 minutes) and reviewing/refining our foundational math fact knowledge. If your student has gotten out of the important habit of nightly reading, now is the time to dive back in. If their math fact knowledge is rusty or incomplete, now is the time to sharpen it or fill in the gaps. 

If you have questions or would like to discuss anything about your student, please feel free to contact me to schedule a time to meet.  

Peace & blessings, 

Mr. Sahlman
