Colorful Colorado - 

The National Park Service has a program designed to encourage kids and their families to visit our National Parks. Every 4th grader is eligible for a free park pass! Click on this link for information about this program.  Keep in mind we have two National Parks in our beautiful state:  Rocky Mountain National Park and Mesa Verde National Park.


Reading -
Character in a Can Book Project is due October 4th.  Students will need to read a good fit book which should help stretch their thinking without being overly challenging.

Fourth graders are encouraged to read outside of school daily.  A guideline is 20 to 30 minutes each day.   i-Ready reading may be considered 1-2 times per week for homework.

Math - Students in each of the groups will receive homework each school night.  Typically this is a worksheet following up with the days' lesson in math group.  When there is no worksheet, students are encouraged to practice math facts in multiplication and division to build fluency or work on i-Ready Math Lessons.

SCE has access to the Typing Pal program for keyboarding skills.  The students are permitted to practice at home as well as in school.  Suggested amount of time to practice is 1 hour per week spread out over several times. I strongly encourage each student to spend time on a regular basis practicing this skill as well to develop stronger skill prior to middle school. 
Keyboarding is such an important skill for students to build, that they may count this occasionally (about 1x per week) as their nightly reading homework.

Ecosystems - the interdependence of living and nonliving things
Fossils - as evidence or clues to earlier life            
Classification of Life (animal kingdom, etc.)
Energy & how it moves through a system
Sun & Moon - observable & predictable patterns
