Hello and welcome to the fourth grade! I am excited to start a new year with my Steekee Scouts! This is my seventh year teaching in Loudon County. I will be your child's Reading and Social Studies teacher. I am a graduate of Tennessee Technological University with a Bachelor's in Elementary and Middle School Education, and recently completed my Reading Specialist Master's degree from Carson-Newman University. I have been married to my husband, Miguel for three years, and we have a wild but sweet pup named Louie. We recently added a new addition to our family, our little boy Luca!

New Commonlit.com Assignments

NEW Commonlit.com assignments are now available! Have your student login and then go to Assignments. They will be able to read the text and then answer the questions in the box on the right side, using the text to help them. New assigned texts are:

Lewis & Clark: American Explorers

A Jelly-Fish

Trail into Darkness

Walking for My Life 

Lazy Anansi

Getting Started on Saving the Everglades

Click here for Printable Reading Packets

This packet is quite lengthy, so it is meant to be used for 4 weeks. There are 2 sections with 10 lessons each, with instructions for each one. My suggestion is for your student to complete one lesson a day, except for weekends of course! 
 
In addition, students can be reading or writing! I have several websites with free books that kids can read for free if you are interested. Students can write letters, poems, stories, comics, or even journal about their experiences during this time.
 
Let me know if you have any questions!
