Ecosystems Project

I am so excited that we are finally beginning our ecosystems project! Each part of the project has a different due date so that I can make sure no one gets overwhelmed or has to spend hours every night on it. There are lots of resources on the internet, in the library, and in our classroom! Here are a few great places to look for more information (and if you find something great, let me know, so I can put it on the website):

Study habits

In 4th grade studying becomes more important and essential for success.

A few suggestions include:

  1. Pay attention in class.
  2. Take good notes.
  3. Plan ahead for tests and projects.
  4. Break it down. (If you have a bunch of stuff to learn, break it into smaller chunks.) This is especially true for studying vocabulary and facts. Short frequent daily intervals work best.
  5. Ask for help if you get stuck.
  6. Get a good night's sleep!

Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year

Welcome to the 4th Grade!

I enjoyed meeting you at Open House, and I am confident that this will be the best year ever! I am truly blessed to be here! I have been looking at my class list for awhile, and eagerly awaiting the day that I would finally meet all of my students. I have been praying for them (and their families) for some time now, and will continue to do so.

If you want to get a head start on the year, you can begin working on multiplication and division facts (0-12) and memorizing the 4th grade prayers.

I will be setting deadlines for both prayers and multiplication facts in the near future.

Have a blessed day!
