4th Grade – Miss Adams

Welcome to Miss Adams’ class website! In 4th grade we travel around the world learning about continents and the different biomes and wildlife within them. We also study Medieval Times, poetry, reading strategies and so much more! In our religion program we focus on the heroes of the word as well as in our everyday lives. Many of our units are filled with various research projects, hands on assignments, field trips and group work. In my classroom, I believe that all students should feel safe to ask questions, cooperate together and treat each other kindly following the 10 Commandments and Golden Rule. It is also important to have fun while learning and do so using many different teaching styles.

Curriculum

Homework

In 4th grade, students are expected to spend about 40 minutes on homework each night. These 40 minutes are broken down into daily math work, math fact practice, studying for weekly spelling tests, memorizing recitations and reading for 15 minutes each night. When homework is fully completed each night, students are rewarded with a roll for a class designed Homeworkopoly game. When homework is not completed, students receive an “oopsie”. After 4 “oopsies” students will begin to serve study halls. Because homework completion is expected these incentives and consequences help keep students accountable and responsible for their work.

 

Class Parent

In 4th grade we have a class parent who helps coordinate parent involvement in class parties, events, and field trips.
