Fourth Grade

fourth_grade.jpgFourth graders are excited about learning, willing to take risks, and curious about everything. As teachers, our job is to channel our students' enthusiasm and guide them in seeking information and gaining skills that will help them in their own academic work. These skills include conceptual knowledge and competence in problem solving, research, writing, mathematics, science, reading, and the arts. We provide a wide range of activities within our units of study that appeal to a variety of interests and learning styles. We also help kids develop a strong sense of community and ownership in their classroom learning. Using the Responsive Classroom curriculum, students become active members in making the classroom rules and classroom consequences, as well as mediating any issues that may arise.
