My Students

We are growing and maturing a lot in fourth grade and each day with them is a new experience. Our elementary school has a nurturing, family feel. We are a rural school where all staff works hard to provide everything our students may need.

My fourth graders are very active and my classroom is a positive environment to support growing bodies and minds!

I want to make fourth grade a memorable experience for all the students that enter my classroom! I want to be able to provide them with anything and everything they will need to have a successful year!

My Project

My students love board games in my fourth grade classroom, especially during our Friday skills time where students learn how to play a variety of board games while learning important skills of teamwork, communication and much more.

The Game of Life, Monopoly, Payday and others will give my students an engaging variety of board games while allowing them to have fun and play with classmates.

While using these games, students will be able to begin to understand the importance of money management and saving while having fun. It will allow them to use board games with friends and compete in a friendly manor while using money.
