1 4 th Grade is almost here! You’ve come to the right place to find out all about your new teacher and classroom!

2 Have you met your teacher yet? Hey new fourth grader! Do you want to know what your new teacher is like? Mr. G is really nice and likes to joke around too, but he also likes kids who follow directions and listen to their teacher. He is very fair and if you work hard, he hopefully won’t give you the “hairy eyeball”. Mr. G loves golf and reading. He loves the Red Sox too. He also has been teaching for ten years and has taught 3 rd, 4 th and 5 th grade. Hey new fourth grader! Do you want to know what your new teacher is like?

3 The Amazing Classroom If you didn’t like your old classroom, then this is the classroom for you! For one thing, at your old classroom you usually have desks right? Well this classroom doesn’t! We have tables in stead of desks. We have tables because you get more room and it’s easier to change spots. We put our books under our chairs. We don’t put our pencils under our chairs. We have something called pencil baskets to put our pencils, markers, and erasers in. As you can see our classroom is a little different then what you had before but change should be as fun as everything else we get to do in our outstanding classroom!

4 Time For Fun And Learning Have you ever seen Jeopardy on television? Well, if you have and you liked it, then you will like jeopardy on the wheel of grammar. The wheel of grammar is a wheel you spin on most Tuesdays. There are six activities on the wheel of grammar: grammar mad libs, team challenge, individual challenge, jeopardy, mystery answer, and make your own example. Most people like team challenge because you can interact with people. You don’t just have fun, you’re learning at the same time because you’re working with nouns, adjectives, and verbs.

5 Marvelous Math Hey, new fourth graders in 4rth grade you will need to know the 4 operations +,-,*, and / before you leave this grade. In addition you will learn how to do 1,432+456, but that’s not all you’ll do there’s subtraction to. Subtraction is a little harder than addition because when you subtract zeroes in a number it can get tricky. In the middle of the year you will learn more complicated multiplication like 97*46 and 867*976. Now comes the hardest operation of them all division. In this operation you will learn how to do 8/897 and 12/2379. Hey, new fourth graders in 4rth grade you will need to know the 4 operations +,-,*, and / before you leave this grade.

6 The Whole Wide World! I bet you do not know a lot about geography yet, but when you get to 4 th grade, you will know triple the amount you already understand. Every week Mr. G. gives you a paper called “Daily Geography”. Every Morning, you answer two questions on the paper like “Do Colorado and Idaho touch Nevada?” and “How many states touch Canada?” The only ways you can find out the answers to these questions are using a globe, an earth map, or a U.S.A. map. At the end of the week, we correct the paper as a class. I bet you do not know a lot about geography yet, but when you get to 4 th grade, you will know triple the amount you already understand.

8 A Challenge Hello new fourth grader, you are in for an exciting year. One of my favorite things was predicament squad. They are problems you have to fix in a group. If your group wins, you will get a prize. My favorite one was Holes even though my team did not win. Mr. G will read you a passage and something will be missing. You and your team will try to find out what is missing. You better get ready because you are in for a tough, but fun year! Hello new fourth grader, you are in for an exciting year.

9 Lets Get To Work! Did you have jobs in 3 rd grade? Well the same will be true in 4 th grade. It is really fun,because you first make your self out of paper, then you cut it out. That person marks your job on the job board. The jobs are really fun to do and you can be boards, line leader, mail person, Office delivery, teacher’s helper, floors, librarian, sub, supply cart, door holder, table washer, duster, cubby patrol, and class poet. If there are no jobs left you might be in unemployment. If you don’t do your job you will get fired!!! And someone from unemployment might take it. So you should do your job.

10 Earning Is Excitable!! Are you well behaved? Well if that answer was a no, you may want to change it, because if you are good, you’ll earn some pretty cool things. For instance, Compliment Club. When people, like teachers or staff, pay you compliments, you get a check. When you have enough checks to spell out your prize, you and your class earn it. Another thing you can earn is bombardment. That is a game that Mr. G played as a kid. He will teach you the rules to this cool game. As you can see, you probably want to act well this year! Are you well behaved?

11 Let’s Experiment! If you like Science last year, you’ll LOVE it this year! In Mrs. Ruocco’s class you take apart owl pellets to find skulls and bones to bring home! And, if you like to learn about space you’ll love Miss Carey’s and Mrs. Matos’s science unit! It’s all about the sun, moon, and earth. You’ll bring home a moon log and study the moon at home! And finally, the best teacher of all, Mr. G’s. science unit with Mr. Moss! They do electricity. You can make a light bulb glow with just a few wires and a battery! Isn’t that cool?! So, as you can see, science is pretty cool in fourth grade. Hope you have a great year! If you like Science last year, you’ll LOVE it this year!

12 A Fun Challenge! Hello new 4 th graders! Do you like a challenge? Well the koosh ball toss is just that. Every morning, Mr. G tosses a koosh ball to a person and says “Good morning” to whoever he chooses. Then that person throws it to another person and says “good morning” to whoever they choose. After everyone has gone you pass it silently, but this time silently to the same person to form a pattern, But try not to drop it. If the whole class does this with no drops, you move up to more koosh balls. The record is 5! Hello new 4 th graders! Do you like a challenge? Well the koosh ball toss is just that.

13 Be Creative “Hey, if you liked 3 rd grade projects you are going to love 4 th grade projects. For example if you like drawing you are going to love the Wild Thing project. In this project you get to draw a monster, but you also get to make your monster up. Another fun project is where you make a turkey( paper turkey). You get to paint feathers for your turkey too. This is only a couple of projects. You will do a lot more projects during the year, but these are some of my favorites. - Maddie

14 Fun with Mr. G! Mr. Giannini lets us play games like bombardment. It is just like dodge ball but you don’t get out. If you get hit, you go on the outer line of the basketball court and still hit other kids. Another game you will play is four corners. In four corners there are four corners in the room and there is a person who closes their eyes and counts to ten and says 1, 2, 3, or 4 and whoever is in the corner you are out. If you are the last person standing, you win, unless the person who counted to ten guesses your name. if not, it starts again and it’s your turn to count.

15 Super Stories Stories are a lot of fun. You will learn many new techniques, such as the GAME plan, The stories you write will be really awesome. One story you write about is a crazy Thanksgiving. Do you know how to write an essay? Well, in fourth grade you will learn how to write a fantastic expository essay. Mr. Giannini will help you out if you are having trouble.

16 Lazy Larry Stories Do you like to laugh? Then today is your lucky day. When my class is being good at the end of the day Mr. G let us play games or told us a Lazy Larry story. Mr. G’s Lazy Larry stories are cool they are weird and funny but my teacher has a cool memory of his old neighbor growing up who did crazy things. Do you like to laugh? Then today is your lucky day.

17 Surprising States One of my favorite things to do in fourth grade was state reports. You get a region of the U.S., either southwest, southeast, northeast, or northwest. Then, you do amazing, fun and creative activates to go along with your region. Some of the projects are scrap booking. You tell about different places. (in your area) Also, you get to write a report on a famous person like Lyndon B. Johnson as a group. Oh I almost forgot about the domino book. You draw things like the state bird, flag, nickname, plant, and gem on construction paper. I saved the best for last. You get to decorate the class room with stuff that goes with your region for open house. -Ashley

18 Fabulous Fridays If you like indoor recess, then you’re going to like “Free Time Friday”. Free Time Friday is just like indoor recess. You will find a bin that is right outside the classroom. There you will find games like Connect Four, Jenga, Racko, and decks of cards. With those cards you can play poker, spoons, spit, goldfish and lots of other card games. You will also find blank pieces of blank paper next to the mailboxes and you can draw whatever you want as long it’s appropriate for school. So now you know what “Free Time Friday” is. But, please know, you have to earn it. If you like indoor recess, then you’re going to like “Free Time Friday”. Free Time Friday is just like indoor recess.

19 Getting Prizes! In Mr.G’s class you will love tokens. Our class earns tokens by being good or doing something extra. If you are not listening or following directions you can loose tokens. For the first time you learn about tokens you get a sheet that says what you can buy with tokens. Towards the end of the year we have token auctions. A token auction is when we use our tokens and Mr. G brings in prizes that we can bid on. I hope you enjoy 4rth grade. In Mr.G’s class you will love tokens.

21 Let’s Party!!!! Do you like parties? If that answer is yes then listen up. In fourth grade we do lots of fun parties! My favorite was the cookie swap.

We also get little mini parties too, like we get to go have a kick ball game once in a while. So as you can see fourth grade is so much fun. Do you like parties? If that answer is yes then listen up.
