Language Arts

   Hello, my name is Miss Ashley Claus. I am a graduate of Ashland University and I will have the privilege of being your children's Fourth grade Language Arts teacher. At Walley Middle School our Fourth grade team will work together to ensure your child has a wonderful learning experience as well as enjoys themselves this year. I plan to base my curriculum around giving the students multiple opportunities to explore and expand on literature. WE will read numerous books together as a class, such as, "The Misadventures of Maude March," "Shiloh," and "Edward Tulane." All of these books I choose will introduce your children to a plethora of language development, story topics, and class discussions. 



 The rules and goals set in my classroom align with "THE 10." In addition, I have a few rules in my classroom that are specific during their time with me in Language Arts. 


1. Everyone reads at their own pace: respect that!

2. Support and encourage your classmates: no put downs!

3. Reading is fun! So enjoy it!


I look forward to working with all my students this year. If you have any questions or would like to contact me feel free to email  me at anytime at and my number is (440)-988-6666.
