Dear Fourth Grade Families, 

Welcome to our fourth week of distance learning. We hope everyone is well and our mothers enjoyed a Happy Mother’s Day weekend! We miss all of you and sure do wish we could be with you! 

We also wanted to remind and encourage all of you to read all the directions and follow the codes you need to access the lessons. As always, if you are participating in a live lesson please refrain from chatting unless you are told that you can by the teacher. 

This week topics are Character Traits, Descriptive Writing, Fractions, American Revolution, Electricity, Conductors, Insulators and Circuits. As always, please look for reminders on Seesaw, Goggle Classroom and click on the Fourth Grade Team Title on the Antietam website under Fourth Grade. If you need any assistance, please email your teacher, use seesaw, or google classroom. 

We hope you have a great week!
