Alexander Zacharias - Fourth Grade  (Send e-mail)

Welcome to our classroom webpage!

Governor Pat Quinn signed Erin's Law in January of 2013, which requires all schools in the state of Illinois to provide age appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education programs for their students in grades Pre-K through 12. In response to this legislation, Frankfort School District 157-C will be presenting, "Child Lures Prevention: Think First and Stay Safe", curriculum for the 2017-2018 school year. Our presentations will occur in November and January.

Curriculum Overview Week of November 13th:

Throughout the year, I would like to share an overview of what to expect at the beginning of each week. I will be updating this website weekly to share what we will be doing in class, as well as upcoming due dates and tests. If at any point in the year you have any questions, ideas or concerns please do not hesitate to e-mail or call me!

Math: This week, we will continue Module 3 working with lessons 22-26. The students will be learning about factors & multiples and also be determining whether a number is prime or composite. I encourage students to be logging in to Zearn at home to reinforce the skills being taught in the classroom!

ELA: We will continue our second quarter unit, Animals. Throughout this unit we will be using our novel, The One and Only Ivan, to study various literary skills. We will be studying poetry, prose & drama this week!

Writing Workshop: We will continue our second quarter writing unit, Literary Essays. We will be dissecting the book Fox and critically analyzing the characters within the text.

Social Studies: We will begin studying the Southeast Region of the United States. Similar to the first quarter, the students will continue to learn about this region's culture and will also memorize the states, capitals, locations and abbreviations in this region.
