Mrs. Pramov's Awesome Fourth Graders
"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." - Albert Einstein
All About Me
I came to Pitman as a Part Time Kindergarten Teacher in 2006. At the time, it was perfect because my son was only a year old and I had just spent a year home with him. I taught the afternoon Kindergarten session for 6 years. After that, I was offered not only a full time position, but a total change in grade! So in 2012, I became a 4th grade teacher.
I am married to my High School sweetheart, Todd. We've been together since 1994! We live in Glassboro and have 2 children, Cole and Isabella (Bella).

About Fourth Grade
Fourth graders have homework every night except Friday. Reading for 20 minutes is every night and some sort of Spelling and Math homework is also given. Tests, Quizzes and Projects will be given throughout the year with plenty of notice. Please check your child's homework folder daily and sign their planners each night. Doing homework and signed planners earns your child team points.
Your child was given a PIN # at the beginning of the school year. Each morning, your child must order their own lunch as part of our morning routine. There's always PB&J, Salad, Bagel and Hot Dog available for lunch. The hot lunch option changes daily. Money can be sent in at any time but MUST BE LABELED in an envelope with your child's name and grade.
You may send in a treat to celebrate your child's birthday. If it's a little bit of a messy treat please send in napkins. Summer birthdays can be celebrated at their half birthday OR towards the end of the year in June. Please do NOT send in a cake of any kind for celebrations as we are not allowed to have knives in the classroom.
Your children sit in groups, or as I like to call them, teams. They learn how to work together as team members everyday. In the morning, the team captain checks to see if they have their homework, math facts, and their planner signed. If so, they earn a certain amount of points. Each day, their team points accumulate, at the end of a 2 week span the team with the highest amount of points wins another prize. Each day your child can earn blue chips for good behavior, good deeds, and just for following directions. There is no limit for blue chips earned during the day. At the end of the day, the team's captain collects all the blue chips from their team, counts them, and turns them into marbles for our classroom marble jar. Once the children fill the marble jar they earn a classroom reward (i.e. movie, extra recess).
