The first day of school is very special, but the fourth day of fourth grade is just as important! Each year on the second day of school, my second graders and I celebrate the excitement of being in second grade. I've created this fourth grade packet with similar short and fun activities. You could also use this packet to celebrate the fourth week of school.
I print this as a packet and we do the activities throughout the day.
~Fourth Grade Word Scramble (create new words from the letters in 'fourth grade')
~4 Wishes (a genie grants you 4 wishes, what will they be?)
~Measuring by Four (measure 4 inches and 4 centimeters)
~These 4 Belong Together (match words that often come in fours)
~Top Four (answer a variety of questions with your 1st, 2nd,3rd, and 4th place answers)
~Skip Counting by 4's
~Adding by 4
~Subtracting by 4
~Multiplying by 4
~Dividing by 4
~4 Part Story (write a short story with 4 people's ideas)
~It's 4 O'Clock Somewhere (review hour/minute hand on a clock)
~Recipe for Success in Fourth Grade (handouts from the teacher. I also give my students a bag of trail mix representing all the ingredients.)
