This is my twelfth year teaching fourth grade at Good Shepherd School. Teaching is my second career. Prior to teaching I was a caseworker for Children and Youth Services. After a break to be an at home mom I received my teaching certificate. While working toward my certificate I was a preschool teacher, a childbirth instructor, and a substitute teacher at several public and Catholic schools.
I am excited about all the things that we will be studying in fourth grade. Here is a brief look.
In Religion, we will be studying the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes.
When you practice multiplying and dividing numbers you will become a Math whiz. You will also enjoy learning about fractions, geometry, decimals, time, measurement and money. Math Maintenance sheets and Accelerated Math will help keep your skills sharp.
In Language Arts, we will be reading great novels and stories. We will also work on many different types of writing pieces. Grammar, spelling, and vocabulary will also be a part of your day. We will also learn library skills and French on Mondays.
In Science, we will be exploring the following topics: animals, the human body, electricity and magnetism, weather, rocks and minerals, and simple machines.
In Social Studies, we will be exploring our home state of Pennsylvania.
