Fourth Grade Summer Assignments
for incoming Fourth Graders
Dear 4th Graders of 2018-2019 and their Parents/Guardians,
Welcome to Fourth Grade! I am looking forward to a great year filled with fun and learning. Doing these assignments over the summer will help keep all your third grade learning and skills sharp. In addition, also spend lots of time playing, relaxing, reading for fun, and getting outside at least a little while every day. See you in September!
Students are expected to complete these assignments before the start of school in September. Grades will be given for the completed assignments. Incomplete assignments will be graded accordingly.
If you have any questions, please contact me at email@example.com
Here is the link to the Math Packet. Students should complete all the pages in the packet and hand the packet in when school starts in September.
******Please note, some of the math pages are cut and paste and can’t be printed back to back with other pages because some material will be cut off.******
Also, students should work, at least a few times a week, on learning and strengthening all their math facts: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Students who may struggle in fourth grade math usually do so because they don’t have their math facts memorized and on automatic recall.
You can use a variety of ways to practice math facts (including but not limited to):
Choose ONE fiction OR nonfiction book.
Choose a book you have not already read.
After you read the book, choose ONE of the projects to complete.
Hand in your project when school starts in September.
There are multiple copies of each of these books available through the local library system.

Building the Brooklyn Bridge was no simple feat. Despite a brilliant plan, the process was a dangerous and grueling one. Construction workers developed a mysterious illness (now known as the bends), several died, and the project had devastating effects on the engineers’ lives. Still, after fourteen years, the Brooklyn Bridge was finished and became the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time and is still widely admired today.
Detailed, four-color paintings and a question-and-answer text bring to life the traditional life, customs, and everyday world of the Iroquois — one of the most powerful and influential of the Indian nations.
