I am the EL teacher for fourth grade. This also happens to be my fourth year at Mississippi Creative Arts, which I've enjoyed very much. I love the families we have here, the diverse and rich cultures and languages that all the students bring, and the staff who support our families and students.
In the fourth grade, we focus on strengthening and growing our language skills by using more academic language, creating and using more complex sentences, making a lot of mistakes, and growing our confidence to explore language.
While we may be back in school for learning, there's still a pandemic going on. Please remember to wear your masks, practice social distancing, and wash your hands often. Stay healthy and curious!
Fourth graders will be taking the ACCESS test after January. The ACCESS has four areas students will be tested in: Listening, Reading, Writing and Reading. To prepare for this, please make sure students are working their best to speak in full, complete sentences at home.
