    I'm working on my "Back to School/Welcome to 4th Grade" Powerpoint that I will be using for the parents and students.

    This is what I have so far:
    -Classroom Rules
    -Homework Policy
    -What I expect out of you

    I know that is a *really* short list, that's why I am hoping you guys can tell me what you include in yours. You can show me yours if you want so I can get some ideas.

    Also, does anyone have any example Back to School Parent Letters and their Classroom Handbook (Rules/Procedures type of thing) that they would be willing to share with me? I need all the help I can get.

    I always talk about homework expectations at Back to School Night. Parents always seem to question how much time their students should work on hw.

    Is there anything "new" in fourth grade at your school? For instance, in Florida, 4th grade is the first time the children are given standardized writing tests. This year, I've decided to show the parents the rubric the state uses to assess these tests.
