Mrs. Follesé’s Class
Hello 4th Grade families,
Happy Summer break!!! The kids and I had a wonderful end of the year together sharing memories of the year, treats, and fun times! We sent home some work that your child should work on over the summer. Please ask your child about this and see their expandable folder for these packets. Below you’ll find the informational letter (that also went home with your child today) explaining each part of this summer review work to help avoid the “summer slide.” It may be helpful to post this information on your refrigerator so that your child can remember to do a little of this work each day to keep those skills active! (Note: If your child returns this work to me at Open House next year I will have a specially treat/prize for them!!)
I’m truly blessed to have spent this year with your child helping them learn and grow into the person that God created them to be. Be assured of my continued prayers for each of your children and your families.
Hello 4thGrade Parents,
To prevent the “summer slide” and keep our 4th grade skills sharp, we as a 4thgrade team have compiled a few packets and resources for your child to work on over the summer. These include:
– Daily/weekly IXL or Khan Academy practices and activities – Your child should have their log in information inside of their assignment notebook. Be sure to record this information before recycling their assignment notebook!!
– Summer reading book idea list – These are just a few ideas to help your child get started with a fun summer reading book! See your local library, Barns & Noble, or even Scholastic.com for great lists!
– A summer reading log (including reading skills tips) – This booklet should be filled out each time your child finishes reading a book. Inside you’ll also find helpful tips to help your child grow in their reading skills (comprehension, word recognition of more difficult words, etc.)
– Summer review packet of skills – This contains a variety of worksheets reviewing skills that we learned this year **Tip: for help with math questions, check out Khan Academy videos either on Youtube.com or on Khanacademy.org!
– A file folder book report (including packets of rough and final draft materials) – Your child will first need to complete the rough draft packet of this assignment before working on the second part, the final draft pages. PLEASE do not skip ahead to the final draft packet without first going through the worksheets in the rough draft packet explaining how to correctly identify the information from the book to fill in to the worksheets. The final draft worksheets will need cut out and glued onto the manila file folder that your child was given during the last week of school. Your child has already begun working on these at school.
Please keep in mind that our intention for these resources is for your child to work on them a little each day (remember, 10 minutes per grade level!) and to not wait until the last week before school begins and feel bogged down with “homework.” These should be an extra tool to help your child prepare for their upcoming year as a 5thgrader. As an extra bonus, please bring ALL of this work back to your teacher (completed!) at Open House at the beginning of the school year for a SPECIAL PRIZE!
Have a relaxing, fun, and blessed summer!
Thank you for your continued support! God Bless.

Hello 4th Grade families! My name is Mrs. Christine Follesé and I’m so excited to begin this new adventure with you at Epiphany Catholic School! I’m 27 years old and this will be my 5th year of teaching.. I began my teaching career in a 2nd grade classroom and then taught 1st Grade for the past three years. I’ve recently moved to Minnesota this past summer from the state of Delaware which has been a huge adjustment, but I’m loving being here with everyone! Going into this school year comes such joy knowing that I get to share in your child’s 4th grade year with them! We have lots of fun things planned and I can’t wait to begin!
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Mrs. Christine Follesé
Have a wonderful summer!!!
(Check back next year for curriculum topics for the 2018-2019 year!)
Please watch for a class schedule to follow at the beginning of school.
