Welcome to Mrs. Brozyna's webpage! I invite you to check back often as I will utilize the webpage as a type of newsletter to communicate what is taking place in the classroom and to announce where we are headed.
Welcome to 4B
Happy Spring! Engineering and Poetry, two 4th Grade highlights, merge in April. Students are tapping into their creative juices to write and illustrate original poetry. In addition, students will enter a poem of choice in a national poetry contest, perform in a classroom Poetry Slam, and publish all of their work in their very own poety book. When not creating artistically, you will find 4th Grade students knee deep in analytical and logical thinking solving problems using the Engineering Design Process. Our young electrical engineers will work toward building circuits to wire a "house" for light with an alarm.
4B students have the opportunity to earn Reading Certificates and record stickers for the total number of books read independently this year. This reading can be done either at home or at school. Please sign the certificates they bring home and encourage your child to participate. It is so much fun throughout the year to see the sticker chart grow! More importantly, there is significant research supporting the notion that children who read at home do better in school than their peers who do not read at home. Students who are good readers also tend to be better spellers, writers, have richer vocabularies, and are more successful in the content areas, such as Science and Social Studies. The evidence is clear that reading at home is crucial to a child's academic success.
Please note that homework is posted on my webpage weekly. It is intended to help you, as parents, help your children at home. Students are still required to copy the daily homework into their agenda each morning. Please note, it is always best to refer first to the student agenda as daily homework may change to meet the needs of the students. For example, the teacher may determine a need to reteach a concept in class affecting the previously planned homework. In addition, specific Math homework will not be posted as students change classes for Math. Typically, the homework corresponds to the Topic and Lesson covered in class that day. See "Homework" below.
Throughout the school year, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I believe communication between home and school is paramount to student success. Use either my school email address (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org) or send in a written note. I will respond as soon as possible. Of course, you can always call the school office to leave a message. Again, I will return the call promptly.
Looking forward to a great school year,
