WELCOME TO FOURTH GRADE
Dear Fourth Grade Parents,
Your involvement and commitment to your child's education is commendable. Your support at school and home is appreciated as we work as a team for the benefit of our students.
As we continue toward our goal of helping each child feel successful and take responsibility in their own learning, we do so with hope that our efforts will result in the holistic growth and development of our students.
Through a variety of instructional strategies, the fourth grade teachers are prepared to enrich the curriculum and meet each individual need. The fourth grade English Language Arts teachers are teaching Reading, Writing, Spelling and Social Studies with a Reading and Writing Workshop Model. They also provide a concentrated study of Literary Genres. In Math this year our students will grow by leaps and bounds, as they build mathematical bridges from 3rd to 4th grade. They will identify numbers and understand numerical relationships up to 100 Billions and the 100th decimal place, explore pre-algebra concepts and build on their geometry skills, just to name a few. In science, students will use the scientific method to discover principles of several different domains.
We look forward to working with awesome academic victories and creating beautiful memories of a FANTASTIC FOURTH GRADE year! If you need us for anything, please don't hesitate to email or call the school.
We believe that students are most successful when teachers and families work together as a team. Therefore, we encourage parent and teacher communication. Our planning period is from 1:35-2:20. During this time, we will be able to have conferences and return any emails or phone calls.
Thanks for all you do!
Mrs. Marks, Mrs. Cox, Mrs. Moore, and Mrs. Daniel
