Welcome to Mrs. Magidson's Teacher Page

Room 25

Fourth Grade

Hello Class,

I am Mrs. Magidson. Welcome to Room 25 and fourth grade! We are going to be reaching for our personal best this year, so be ready to be the best YOU!

I have planned a great year ahead and am looking forward to getting started. This year may look a little different than the beginning of school in the past. We will be taking all health and safety precautions very seriously this year.


There may be times this year that we are in the classroom or times that we are distance learning using google classroom, zoom, google meet and other online applications. These decisions will be based on the San Lorenzo School District's recommendations from the Centers from Disease Control, CDC.


Because we may be using distance learning early in the year it is important for all students to be able to access our Google classroom to do this students must be able to reach their google accounts online. The following directions are meant to assist all families remotely.


In order to access your google account follow the directions below.

  1. Go to google.
  2. Click on the icon on the top right. It may be an image or letter of the alphabet that identifies whom the account belongs to.
  3. After this click add another account.
  4. Then you will put your user id from school which will be a five digit number and @student.slzusd.org. An example of this would be 12345@student.slzusd.org
  5. Next you will use your password.
  6. After this you can use google classroom, NEWSELA, brainpop, raz-kids… if it asks you to login use the google suite option and you should be set.

I am looking forward to getting this year started and working with each and everyone of you. If you need to reach me please use my email address at bmagidson@slzusd.org . I will try to back to you as soon as possible.


Remember to wash those hands for 2 choruses of Happy Birthday with soap and water. Don’t forget to do you between each finger and under your fingernails.

Sending you all wishes to stay happy and healthy. See you in class!

Distance Learning Changes for Room 25

Dear Students and Families of Room 25,

My name is Mrs. Magidson and I will be your fourth grade teacher. The 2020 - 2021 school year is knocking at the door! I am very excited to welcome you to Fourth Grade! It's going to be a year different from all the years before. This year we start the year with distance learning. We will be meeting daily via zoom, google meet, google classroom, Seesaw, and other digital tools.

Although this year will begin differently, let me assure you many things will remain the same. I will be using the California State Learning Standards for fourth grade to guide all instruction. I have the expectation that every student will attempt, complete, and submit all assignments. I will be giving instruction at designated times. Additionally I will be meeting with small groups and available throughout the school day via email, google classroom, zoom, and/or phone.

It is an unusual time in history for schooling. We will be talking about this time in history for years to come. It is important to remember that staying motivated and on top of all school work should remain a priority. Many of you will attempt, complete and turn in every single distance learning assignment. You should be proud of yourselves and continue to strive for great success. Remember, when you're tired, bored, or discontent, reach down and pull yourself up, keep reaching for those stars. Staying motivated and continue to strive for excellence. This is a life lesson that will take you far! 

I want to thank all of the parents and each one of my students this year. We will learn many things about ourselves and what we are capable of. This will be a year of great adventure. To all my 4th graders Ms. Newton and Mr. Groves tell me you are set and ready for this year, let's make it a year to remember! I want to thank you in advance for just being you! As we begin this year learning about ourselves and others remember our classroom golden rule is kindness first!

Let's have a safe, healthy and wonderful school year. Here we come 2020 - 2021!

Love to all,

Mrs. Magidson
