Ms. N’s Fourth Grade ELA Class! 


Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! We are going to have a fabulous year of fourth grade! Using this website will keep my students and their parents/guardian, and me on the same page! This website will have general information about what topic lesson we are on, due dates, what homework was assigned and all the important things that parents need to be in the loop about! As I stated in the syllabus I strongly believe in the connection with the adults in the students’ lives. We are all here to support our student and make them the best person they can be!  

 Classroom Expectations:

  1. Let's all be safe and have fun learning!

  2. One-mic: only one person can speak at a time

  3. Try your best! Mistakes are proof that you are trying!

  4. Keep hands and feet to yourself

  5. Respect yourself, classmates, teachers, and the school
