Welcome back to school! My name is Ms. Byrne and this is my 4th year teaching at Saint Giles. I am so thrilled to begin another fun filled year of learning. This year, I am teaching all fifth grade religion, all fourth grade reading, and grammar, vocabulary, and religion to my homeroom.
Here is what we will be doing in class this week:
Reading: Students will be learning about the elements of a story- specifically plot. Students will be creating a plot diagram for the summer novel they chose to read. This diagram will include exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution.
Religion (All Grades): Students will be reviewing church expectations and creating rationales for each expectation.
Grammar/Vocabulary: Students will be working on “All About Me” activities, and writing a short paper about themselves.
Each week, I will be posting a summary of what students will be working on in my classroom. On my ClassDojo page, you will see announcements and photos of fourth grade throughout the school year. Feel free to contact me with any questions at email@example.com. GO LIONS!
