Mrs. Laura Kovatch, Fourth Grade

Hi! My name is Laura Kovatch and I teach fourth grade Language Arts and Science. This is my eleventh year here at St. John Fisher, and I feel so lucky to be part of such a wonderful school community. Outside of school, I love to travel and spend time with my family, especially my beautiful daughter Katelyn. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year together! 

4th Grade: Week of September 4th

Posted on Sep 04, 2018

I hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day weekend!  Thank you to everyone who came out to our Back to School Night last week.  It was so nice to meet you and talk about what a wonderful year we are going to have!  

We have a short, but busy, week ahead in 4th Grade! 

Language Arts-This week we will continue to study the four types of sentences.  We will also begin learning about complete subjects and predicates.  There will be a quiz on the types of sentences on Friday.  In Writing we will be discussing the parts of a paragraph and the structure of expository writing.

Science-We will continue learning about how to analyze and create graphs.  We will be using data to make our own bar and line graphs this week!  There will be a graphing quiz next Tuesday, September 11th

Spelling-We are on Unit 2 this week, and our test will be on Friday. 

*Our first all school mass will be this Friday, the 7th, at 1:00.  All are welcome to join us!

**Starting this week and continuing until Monday, September 10th, SJF  be doing a collection contest in honor of September 11th.  Contributions are greatly appreciated and can win us a “Patriotic Class Dress Down Day”!


In Science last week, students gathered data from their classmates and used it to create different types of graphs.  We collected data on birthdays, favorite subjects, and how many classmates could roll their tongues (just to name a few).  In Language Arts, we discussed the characteristics of the different types of writing, and we looked for clue words and evidence as we analyzed prompts. Here are some pictures from our work last week!
