Mrs. Laura Kovatch, Fourth Grade

Hi! My name is Laura Kovatch and I teach fourth grade Language Arts and Spelling. This is my fourteenth 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! 

Week of December 19th

Posted on Dec 19, 2016

We had a busy week last week in our science classes.  We had a presentation called "Ag in the Classroom" come and teach us all about agriculture in our state. The kids really enjoyed the presentation.



We also finished our human body unit by making our human body t-shirts.  The kids really loved making their shirts and wearing them for everyone to see!




This week will be very busy as well!  We will be working in class and will have some special Christmas activities to attend.

Language Arts-This week we will be learning about similes and metaphors.  We will work to identify them in some Christmas sentences and even a Christmas song! 

Science-We have finished our study of the human body, and we have our test on Tuesday. 

Spelling-We are on Unit 16 this week, and our test will be Friday.

Dismissal is at 11:30 on Friday.  I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year!
