I believe fourth grade is an exciting year. It is a transition year from primary elementary to upper elementary. Students learn to take individual responsibilty for their learning.
In fourth grade we learn about many exciting things. Some of the major areas we cover are: long multiplication, long division, fractions, decimals, and percents; we read a variety of trade books; in science we study the sun, moon, stars, magnetism and electricity; social studies is all about Wisconsin from the early Native Americans to our modern government; and we will do a variety of writings.
There are fantastic field trips in fourth grade. We will visit The Old Wade House in the fall as part of social studies curriculum. In winter, as part of our course work for social studies and science, we will hike around Kettle Moraine Glacier Trail. Finally, in the spring we will visit the Capitol in Madison as part of our government unit.
In 1997, I earned my Bachelor of Science from the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in Earth Science. I earned my Masters in the Art of Teaching from Aurora University in 2000. In 2005, I received my National Board Professional Teaching certificate.
