Skills for Incoming 4th Graders: Keep Scrolling!

Six Things Your Child Could Practice Over the Summer to Get Ready for 4th Grade: 

1. Complete chores around the house

2. Follow multi-step oral directions (example: Make your bed then empty the dishwasher.)

3. Know address and phone number and how to write both

4. Practice multiplication, division, addition and subtraction facts for 20 minutes a day

5. Have conversations: reciprocity of ideas, generating and asking good questions,  answering in complete sentences, learn to listen well

6. Read, read, read! Be sure to read every day.  Reading time should always outweigh screen time
