Hello! My name is Dawn Roesch. I am a Chatham native. I received my Elementary Education degree from Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington and my Masters degree from Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville in 2006. My husband and I have a son who is a senior at Illinois College where he is a team captain and line backer coach on the football team and studying Biology and Environmental Sciences. Our daughter is a freshman studying nursing at SIU-E. My husband is Chief Deputy with the Sangamon County Sheriff's Department. We love the outdoors, spending time hunting, fishing, gardening, and eating what we harvest. We also spend time kayaking, hiking, riding horses, shooting, and boating.

 I started teaching Fourth graders in Virden, August of 1989!  I have been teaching Science which is truly my passion since 2000. My goal is to nuture or instill a love of learning and build and develop the skills necessary to be able to seek out answers and discover information on their own. My desire is for all my students to experience Science and Social Studies content in a positive way which will lead to true lifelong learners.

I am truly looking forward to a great year of working with your children.

HELPFUL REMINDERS

Also known as: 
Even though this looks long and wordy, it is information worth reading to help your child be successful in 4th grade this year! :)

  • Please remember to check your child's book bag and agenda (also called the assignment notebook) daily for papers to sign and return, graded papers or notes to view and clean out.  
  • Always try to do this task with your child present. This way he or she sees you taking an interest in his or her learning and can take responsibility for what can and cannot be discarded.  We hear many say "My mom threw my homework away" to which we respond you should have been there to tell her which papers to keep and which to discard.
  • We are really working hard on helping the students to develop a routine for daily homework and organization skills to bring the correct materials home and then back to school the following school day.  
  • A great habit to get into is using the same place to complete any homework and immediately putting the assignments and books in the book bag for the following morning.

BOOK ORDERS

 

BOOK ORDERS ARE DUE:   
, 2019 
‚ÄčThank you for you for your order!

Mrs. Harris has made it possible to order online, so if you want to use this convenience your child has been given a white paper with the order code for our class/grade.

  • Please make checks out to: Scholastic Book Clubs. 
  • You may write one check for the total order even if ordering from several different order forms such as Lucky, Arrow, Tab, or Click.
  • Be sure to put your child's name on each order form as well as in an envelope or a ziploc baggie.  This is helpful when delivering the books once they arrive.
  • If you ever want to order without your child knowing (in the case of a birthday gift) just drop the order by the school with a note to keep it a secret.  I will notify you when the order arrives.
  • All proceeds from the 4th grade book orders go towards incentives for our grade level students.  We use the free points to buy items for the grab bag as well as our Christmas goody bags.*

ACCELERATED READER 

  • Each month your child is required to read a 3.0 point AR book.  The student will show they have read the book by taking and passing an AR test on the computer here at school. This is then recorded as a part of the Reading grade 

  • JANUARY AR IS DUE 1/31/19 !!! READ, READ, READ!!!

  • Science Text

  •  

     

    We will be working hard to understand the Scientific Method by following the steps each time we do an experiment. Each day we try to improve our thinking skills by thinking like a scientist. We are currently learning about  OUR SOLAR SYSTEM. We are studying the effects of the sun on our planet as well as facts about the other planets in our solar system. The Star Lab which is a portable, inflatable planetarium will be here the 1st week of February. Students will enjoy learning and reviewing information from this unique classroom!
  • Our guest speaker, Mrs. Niemann, from the U of I Extension Office, Agricultural Literacy Program, will teach us about our great state of Illinois and all the agriculture jobs and products found here on the 25th of January.

Social Studies

 We will study regions of the USA and what characteristics each region has that makes it unique.  We will learn all the states and their capital cities as well. We are currently going SOUTH for the winter and learning the 14 States and their Abbreviations as well as the Capital Cities.
