We are off to a great start in 4S.  I have enjoyed getting to know each of the students during the first week 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.

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 begin working in our new reading series.  This encompasses reading, phonics, spelling, grammar, comprehension and writing.  I will also be adding in other grammar and writing work that will enhance the lessons in the Reading Street book.

Social Studies-We will begin 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.

 

Welcome to 4S!

Welcome to 4th grade!  I am so excited to be part of the St. Christopher family this year.  I am looking forward to getting to know each family as we begin our journey.

I hope that everyone had a great summer and got plenty of rest in preparation for all the great and exciting things we are going to learn this year.  4th grade has many new challenges to face and I will be there every step of the way to guide and assist each child.  Please contect me with any questions or concerns.  This is going to be a great year!
