Welcome to our combined Third and Fourth Grade!
My name is Jessica Grodin and I am so excited to be teaching this special combined class at Crossroads this year. This is my fifth year teaching at Crossroads, and I love being part of such a caring community.
I feel very priveledged to be teaching in Saint Paul, as I am a proud graduate of St. Paul Public schools. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and Spanish from the University of Minnesota and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Hamline University. Outside of school I enjoy reading, spending time outdoors and travel. My most favorite time is spent with my husband, Seth, and our daughter, Zoe.
Our class voted, and our team name is the Crystal Ducks!
Our Library day is Monday. Please make sure your child returns their book each week so they can check out a new one to read. We recommend keeping books in backpacks when they are not being read at home.
We will visit the I Zone each Tuesday afternoon to explore, experiment and use scientific thinking. In the I Zone students ask questions and seek answers, then take time to reflect on their observations and experiences. Third and Fourth graders get to work on the more advanced side of the I Zone, and we will express our scientific thinking in science notebooks. This year in the I Zone we will focus on different themes. Ask your child to share with you what they learned each week!
