Fourth Grade Winter Carnival Song
(Sung to the tune of “Havana” by Camila Cabello)
Oh, the Fourth Grade, ooh na na
You know we’ve really got it made, ooh na na na
Come take a look at all the cool things that we’ve made
We’re always kind when we work and when we play
We don’t walk up with that frightened face (We’re always brave)
We’re the best students in this place (Goodbye, watch us wave)
And every minute we’re always nice (Every moment we’ll save)
Let’s go play on the snow and ice (Ooh na na na)

By far, the most important homework in 4th Grade is independent reading. Students are expected to read for at least 20 minutes a day, five days a week (but more is great, of course!). Students are also expected to keep a Reading Journal made up of individual Book Tickets or Book Storyboards. A Book Ticket is a summary of what they are reading every two weeks (or when they finish reading a book, whichever comes first). If a book takes longer than two weeks to read, then students will summarize up to the point they’ve read. There will usually be a page of daily math homework, and sometimes projects (such as science) that will require some home study. In general, students should not expect to spend more than 30-40 minutes on homework on a given day, reading included.
