• Mrs. Mercer's Summer Update

    July 2020 


    Welcome to the new fourth grade class! Your previous teachers have said SO MANY wonderful things about you! I am so excited to have such a hardworking, positive, and kind group of students coming in! We will definitely learn and grow together this year. 

    There are so many things we're going to learn this year in fourth grade! We will read all types of stories and texts. One of my favorite books we read is The Tiger Rising by Kate DiCamillo (which is coming out as a movie soon starring Queen Latifia!) We'll write essays, stories, and narratives with FIVE paragraphs! My favorite subject is math, where we'll learn to multiply and divide. We'll also dig deep into fractions and decimals! Don't let any of that scare you, we're about to start a great journey together. 

    Over the summer, I really enjoy staying active and hanging out with my husband and two dogs, Atlas and Luna! We love to play games in the backyard, even though Luna always steals the frisbee! We go kayaking, hiking, and swimming togther most weekends. I also love to read! Right now I am reading Where'd You Go Bernadette about a woman who changes her life in a brand new town! I hope you are all enjoying your summer, too! 

    It's very important that you keep practicing your math, reading, and writing skills over the summer. Use the links below to find summer guides to help keep your skills sharp! When we're back in school in September, you can hand in your work for a special surprise! 

    If you have any questions or concerns over the summer, please do not hesitate to reach out to me! You can reach me via email: cmercer@hamilton.k12.nj.us

    Enjoy the remainder of you summer and I can't wait to meet you all soon!
