Welcome to Fourth Grade! If you have any questions or concerns, please This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

I have been a teacher for over 15 years. I enjoy working with students in the upper elementary grades and my favorite subjects are Social Studies and Reading. I enjoy reading and going to the beach.

September in 4D

We are off to a great start in 4D.  I have enjoyed getting to know each of the students during the first weeks of school.  We spent time talking about classroom rules and expectations.  We also learned about the classroom routine.  We are ready to face the curriculum head on!

Our special schedule is as follows:

Monday-Library/Computer and Music

Tuesday-Spanish

Wednesday-Art

Thursday-Physical Education

In 4th grade this year, I will be teaching Social Studies and Mrs. T will be teaching Science.  We will switch for 30 minutes each day with the exception of Thursday.  If you have any questions regarding Science, please direct those to Mrs. T.

Here is what you can expect to see in the coming weeks as we journey into the 4th grade curriculum.

Math-We will be working on place value concepts including place value up to the millions, rounding, and comparing numbers.  We will also begin working on our multiplication facts.

Language Arts-We will explore many grammar concepts using the Voyages in English book.  We will begin with Sentences.  This is the book we will use to explore various writing concepts beginning with Personal Narrative.  We will use our reading series, Reading Street, to focus on reading comprehension and other reading skills.  This year we will begin by reading a class novel together.  The novel we will read is Because of Winn Dixie.

Social Studies-We have started the year review some Social Studies concepts such as the continents and the oceans.  We will next move into our exploration of the Regions of the United States starting with the Northeast.  Throughout the year, the students will be learning their states and capitals and will also be learning where the states are on a map.

Religion-We will be reminding ourselves about the role Jesus plays in our lives before moving into a more in depth study of the Ten Commandments.

I look forward to seeing you all again at the Parent Information Night.  If you have any questions before then, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

We are in the Home Stretch...

Wow!  June already!  We only have 12 ½ days left of 4th grade!  I can’t even believe how fast this year went by!  What a great year we have had!  I have enjoyed getting to know each and every one of my students this year.  We have a lot going on these last few days of the school year.  They include our Mass on Friday, June 2nd, 3 our day in the park, and much more!  I plan to keep the academics going in between all these fun things right up until the end!  Thank you parents for all your support this year!  I hope you all have a great and restful summer!
