Welcome to Mrs. Peterson's 4th grade Classroom!
Below is schedule and subject information from the 2016-2017 school year. As new information is available, this website will be updated.
I teach all subjects to my students! This includes math, reading, language arts, science, Virginia studies, spelling, and writing.
If you need to contact me via phone please call (434)525-2681
or you can email me at email@example.com
Reading: We read daily! At times the class will be in reading groups and read novels based upon reading ability. Other times throughout the year we will participate in whole group novel studies. I will introduce the students to some novels in series, so that they may read other books in that series independently. Students will also have unit lessons for additional reading and language skills.
Math: I will teach math each day. During this time we will explore a variety of concepts. Each concept is continually reviewed throughout the year. Major standards that we master in fourth grade include multiplying by multiple digits, long division, and fractions.
Spelling: The fourth grade uses a spelling program called Word Explorers. Students will receive a new list every other week. Words can be studied in your child’s notebook or on quizlet.
Writing: Your child will receive writing instruction from me. We will write daily, but will have at least one writing sample scored on a rubric each nine weeks.
VA Studies: Students will learn about Virginia history this year from me. We encourage students to check out www.solpass.org (password: fesowls) for fun games and study tools.
Science: Your child will be introduced to fourth and fifth grade science standards this year. Though there is not an SOL test for science in fourth grade, this material will be built upon as they progress through fifth grade, middle, and high school. Students may also use www.solpass.org as an interactive science supplement.
