1 Welcome to 4th Grade Curriculum Night
Mrs. Bowe Room Mrs. Broton Mrs. Gazlay, and Ms. Nicolletti

2 My Philosophy I believe that all children can learn
I believe that everyone has the right to learn and no one has the right to interfere with their learning I believe in high expectations for all children that they will become a community of learners I believe that all children should be actively involved in their learning I believe that children need to know how to work independently as well as cooperatively I believe that children, as well as adults, should treat others the way they want to be treated

3 Class Rules and Consequences
Respect Yourself Respect Others Respect the Environment Students will fill out a form explaining their behavior and what they will do to improve it. I will have a conversation with the student regarding their behavior.

11 Homework Homework will soon take on a new look at the fourth grade. I am in the process of preparing for each week, homework that is meaningful and supports the Common Core/21st Century Learner. Students will be given their homework packet for the week on Monday. It will be due on Friday, however they may turn it in when it is completed. It will be a combination of writing, math, science, or social studies. At-home Reading will always be due on Mondays. Visit my website to see what is happening in our classroom.

12 Birthdays You are welcome to join and bring in a birthday treat for the class and celebrate your child’s birthday with us in the cafeteria at the end of lunch. Please try to bring in peanut free treats. We have 24 students in our class.

13 Parties This year at 4th Grade the parties will be for students only. We will be having a Halloween, Christmas and Valentine party with activities and some treats. I will be asking parents to send in treats for Christmas and Valentine’s Day parties. I don’t ask any parents for money. Our end-of-the-year picnic will be for students and parents.
