Note:We have the most fabulous team of fourth grade teachers.  Together, we function as a true meaning of a team.  We work together, laugh together, share successes, and most important of all, plan all of our activities for all the fourth graders together.  Teamwork makes it happen!
At Neabsco Elementary, WE ARE HAPPENING!!



Remainder of the school year
Virtual Learning
Beginning April 20th, our class will meet daily on Zoom from 12:40pm -1:40pm for learning. The code to join will be posted on dojo and sent to your email. If a student cannot attend, a recording will be provided on the calendar below.


Listed below are the topics of study we were focusing on and learning about or were preparing to learn about prior to the situation we now face for PWCS:

Math:  We just completed our unit on fractions and computation (adding and subtracting fractions). We were preparing to begin a unit on Probability.

Reading:  We have begun studying Poetry.  Our lesson focuses have been on developing and understanding of Poetry through the integration of our Standards of Learning such as character, setting, plot, main idea, supporting details, cause and effect (if appropriate), author's purpose, and use of sensory words to enhance the author's intent when writing the poem.  Log onto LEXIA or MyOn through Clever.

Writing:  We were beginning to write and create our own poems.

Science:  We have been studying Basic Electricity and Magnetism learning all about open and closed circuits, series and parallel circuits, positive and negative poles on a magnet, why magnets work the way they do, and we were in the process of learning how to create and build our own electromagnet.

VA Studies:  We just finished a unit on the Civil War and we were preparing to begin to study Virginia's Reconstruction following the Civil War.

OUR VISION:

In room 127 we want to make good decision for others to follow. Learning is Fun and we will all impart knowledge to one another. We will be able to become critical thinkers and use what we’ve learnt and relate it to real life situations.

MISSION:

My mission is to instill confidence in my students that they can achieve anything. We will be respectful, responsible and a good citizen. A “CAN DO” attitude is a must. We will work hard to create a conducive learning environment. We “WILL” achieve our GOALS.
