Ms. Sheckels' 4th Grade Class

Welcome to 4th Grade at St. Thomas More School! 
Following years of learning to read, this year we are ready to "read to learn"!   We explore topics such as electricity, weather, oceans, outer space, and the human body in Science.  In Social Studies, we learn the history and geography of Virginia.  By reading both classics and new children's literature, we continue to develop a love of reading while improving comprehension skills.  In Religion, students learn about the Sacraments, Ten Commandments, and Beatitudes, while striving to love God and others.
    As in prior grades, we continue Daily 5 reading routines, Word Study, and Writer's Workshop.  We use the Everyday Mathematics textbook series, as well as other hands-on activities and projects, to help children extend their number sense and computational skills.  Prepare for multiplication, division, and fractions!   
   Fourth grade is a time for learning, exploring exciting topics in depth, and of course, building friendships.
