Summer Tutoring

I am beginning to create a schedule of summer tutoring. This summer, I will tutor from my Zoom Room on a weekly schedule. I can provide enrichment, assistance with summer work, or a review of 4th grade skills. Please contact me for a personalized plan that meets your child’s needs.  The fee is $35 per 50 – 55 minute session; payments will be accepted through Venmo or check.

You can contact me best through email or cell phone. If you want to contact by phone either email me first by email or let Mrs.Okula know you are interested and she will provide you my number.

Mrs. Berge is also tutoring this year if you want to contact her I can get you her information as well.

Classwork and Homework Assignments 

Summer Math work –Finish your simple solutions. Please use the remainder of the book to maintain math skills over the summer. Other work should include maintaining multiplication facts.  Math facts are a foundation for all math in 5th grade and students who lose these skills struggle in fifth grade math. In addition, you can use the as a resource to keep sharp and move on to the 5th grade lessons to help. Out of the box hands on learning for decimals can be found here. I would also practice the division of two-digit numbers. This can be found in your Progress in Mathematics book.

Summer Reading Work – Newsela is a resource which combines reading skills with current events and topics taken from a variety of journals and newspapers.  Since we’ve been using this platform, Newsela adjusts the articles and aligns it to your child’s level.  It does this based on your child’s responses to the activities assigned.  It’s a wonderful resource that gives your child a real world reading experience.  You will have to make your own account. Another option is the is Scholastic Summer Read – A – Palooza. Students will be able to track their reading using this resource.
