“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” ―Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!
Most remember their experience in the fourth grade very fondly, and that is because students develop so much as people and thinkers. Fourth grade is a year of academic, spiritual, social, and moral growth. Throughout the year, I look forward to watching each student grow in their own unique ways. Overall, fourth grade is such a terrific year in the elementary grades, and your learner has a year of discoveries to look forward to!
In 4A, we will be hands-on and interactive learners. For example, every day we will host a Morning Meeting. Each day that we meet on the rug, there will be a new student leading the meeting (this will be a daily rotation). The student will create the morning greeting, create/bring a prayer of choosing, and will share something with the class that is of importance to him/her. This creates an opportunity for students to make connections and learn about various backgrounds/cultures of the classroom.
At Saint Joseph Elementary School we...
Seek God first,
Strive for academic excellence,
Share our gifts and talents, and
Serve each other and the world.
