Welcome to Fourth Grade!
I am very happy to be in my second year of the Keith family. I believe that teaching and learning go hand in hand. Teaching is successful when deep understanding and application is taking place. That is why I teach using multiple strategies and techniques in order to reach all levels of learning. Students will be reading in textbooks, researching on the internet, completing technology projects and doing many hands-on activities. This is to ensure that your child is set with high expectations and enriched lessons that will enhance their education.
Students will learn and grow to be responsible citizens. They will be challenged with higher-level thinking skills, problem solving, and integrated technology curriculum projects that demonstate their knowledge. Students will also increase their independence, civic responsibility, collaboration, and communication as they engage in the Grade 4 learning standards.
Some of the topics students will learn are the location of all 50 states, their capitols and geography, and fundamental concepts of a state’s history. Students will research a state, and create a travel brochure based on the state’s resources. As a culminating project, Grade 4 students will apply their knowledge and create a state game where the entire Lower School will come visit the Annual 4th Grade State Fair.
I encourage you to speak with your child about the experiences we have in the classroom and to ask about what is learned on a daily basis. I really look forward to getting to know you and your family this year. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
