Mrs. Kathie Werts, Teacher
Hi! My name is Kathie Werts, and I am one of the newest teachers here at Our Lady Queen of Peace.
Students attend Mass every Friday and every third Tuesday with their class. We focus mainly on the Ten Commandments.
Students will read a variety of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, folktales, and fairytales. They will make appropriate predictions and inferences before, during, and after each reading. Vocabulary will be reviewed also. Reading skills will be taught through Think Central on our Smart board.
The primary focus in fourth grade is on the states and regions of the United States. They will also research the Presidents of the United States and learn the states and capitals.
The fourth grade will be using the Saxon Math textbook. They will work mainly on adding, subtracting, multiplication, and division. Students will also learn about place value, rounding numbers, fractions, decimals, line segments, rays, angles, the calendar, surveys, range, median, mode, geometric shapes, and roman numerals. Additional reinforcement will also be done during their computer time.
