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! 

Week of May 1st

Posted on May 01, 2017

It's May!  I can't believe how fast the year is going!  We may not have too much time left in the school year, but we will continue to work hard and learn new things!

Language Arts-This week we will learn about possessive pronouns and using I and me correctly.  We will also continue our study of figurative language.  Last week we learned about similes and metaphors, and this week we will discuss idioms and alliteration. 

Science-We have finished our study of sound.  We will have an open-packet test on Tuesday.  We will also connect our study of sound with an article in our "Super Science" magazine about how students in Paraguay make music with instruments made out of garbage.  Our next unit will be on the solar system.

Spelling-We are on Unit 31 this week, and we will have a test on Friday.

*Rocket Day permission slips went home last week.  Please return the permission slip and $12.00 by this Thursday.  A note to sign-up to help us build and launch will be coming home this week.

*On Tuesday, the students may be out of uniform for a dollar.  The students should wear red to show their support for the Special Olympics and the Choose Kind Campaign. 

Have a wonderful week!
