Welcome to Miss Ricketts' Class

Hi Parents;

Welcome back to a new school year.  I hope you had a fun-filled and restful summer.  Below you will find an overview of what the students in 4R will encounter in September.

Grade 4s will start the whole numbers unit in math.  They will work on recognizing and reading numbers to 10, 000, write numbers in expanded and standard form and compare and order numbers.  In science, we begin with the Light and Shadows unit.  While working on this topic the students will distinguish objects that emit their own light from those that reflect light, identify a wide range of sources of light and describe changes in the size and location of shadows during the day.  Alberta, a sense of the land is our topic in social studies.  We will look at where Alberta is in Canada, use direction to look at a place on a map and explore the different regions of Alberta.  During our language learning time, the students will work on reading tasks that are at their level.  They will learn to write descriptive sentences with a noun, verb, adjective and adverb.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email me at: bonnie.ricketts@fmcsd.ab.ca  

Thanks so much for your attention,
Ms. Ricketts
