Weeks 3-4 (Feb. 25- Mar. 8)
The 2018-19 school year is gearing up to be a fantastic one! ELA has many fun and exciting lessons planned. We will be reading novels, learning new reading and writing strategies, and brushing up on skills from previous years.
My goal is to make reading as engaging and fun as possible. We want students to leave 4th grade with a positive outlook and an investment in their education. Students will read independently, along with other students in small groups, and together as a class.
The children will complete classwork and projects independently, but also with other students, as they learn much from each other. Group work is a vital component in our classroom learning environment, as it fosters cooperation, communication, and collaboration.
BIO: I have three beautiful children with my husband of 13 years. Both of my sons attend FTCE and my daughter is in preschool. This is my 7th year at Franklin Towne Charter E.S., my 3rd with the focus on ELA. I have a master’s degree from Holy Family University in elementary education. My bachelor’s degree of science was earned at Temple University, majoring in English. I am also certified to teach middle school English.
