Welcome Class of 2013-2014


Welcome to the Fourth Grade.  Planning on you having a wonderful year of learning with your classmates and me! This blog will provide a "window to our learning" for you, your families, relatives and hopefully many others.  (What I love about this blog is that you and your families can leave a comment in the section below!)

Fourth grade is such an exciting year.  We will spend the first week or two getting to know one another and working on some team building activities.  We will also spend time building our reading stamina. We will start out small and reach the goal of reading at a sustained pace for 30 minutes! You will be hearing a lot about the Daily5 which will give you many CHOICES on your reading journey. This year there is a new math program called EnVisions.  I think you are going to enjoy learning math with the help of this new program!  

We are going to have a great year!  Looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you.  Please fill out this "All About You" Survey. (click on these words: All About You) It will help me get to know you before we meet face to face!  Click and you can get to know more about ME!

I'll be looking out for you on the first day of school.

  6. Hi everyone! I had a great first day of fourth grade ! I am so excited for school tomorrow! Mrs. Carroll, you are such a awesome teacher. My sister Kayla is sitting next to me on my computer chair. I can't even "feel" myself barley. Oh, my dad just parked his car in our family garage and is walking into our house now. I better go and greet him. My dad loves it when I say hello to him after work. Anyhow, see you all tomorrow for another great day. " Bye! "
