This summer your child will be required but not limited to read three (3) books. One will be required to be read and the other two they can choose on their own. The required text is Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson. Students should fill out questions on the worksheet and turn them in on the first day of school in August. (A separate book report form is not required for this book.) The Activities portion is required to be finished as well in the packet.
When you are choosing titles for the other two (2) required books, they can be fiction or non-fiction, but it cannot be a book they have read in the fourth grade class. Reading over the summer is very important because it develops the mind. The mind is a muscle and it needs exercised. There are a lot of places you can go to find books for your students. I have attached a reading list on the website with age appropriate books that you can choose from if you are having a hard time finding a book to read. They will be required to fill out a book report form for each of the books they choose.
Your child will also be required to complete a math packet given to them at the end of the school year. We are transitioning to a new math series called My Math by McGraw Hill. Since we are changing companies we need to make sure each and every child has a solid foundation when entering the fifth grade. Since each year builds on the previous year’s skills in math, this packet will contain problems that reinforce the skills they worked on in fourth grade. This packet can also be downloaded below.
Your child is now on their way to being a fifth grader. The summer work for reading and math will be their first grades of the first nine weeks of fifth grade.. It’s crucial that they do well so they do not start the year on a bad footing. This transition from fourth grade to fifth grade can be very difficult for some. To make their transition easier they need to have mastered their multiplication tables through their twelves (12) and they need to be able to divide small numbers mentally. The last page of the math packet has a list of websites that are fun and can help reinforce skills from fourth grade.
