Welcome to Class 4-1: Mrs. Saccone's Class!
      

This is my 19th year teaching and my eighth year at Notre Dame. I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl playing school with my Grandpa. I am the mommy to my beautiful 5 year old daughter, Gianna. I am looking forward to an exciting year sharing in both your child's educational and spiritual growth. If you have any questions or concerns, you can email me at msaccone7211@ndsnet.org


*Please be sure you are aware of  the days your child stays for drama. If they are on the list, they will be staying unless we have a note that says otherwise.
 

Week of April 23d
MATH
We spent a number of day using our protractors and measuring and drawing angles. Students now have a nice understanding on how to use this mathematical tool. We are working on area and perimeter. Students will be creating sketches for their dream house and figuring out the area of their house. We will then work on our symmetrical pictures. This is one of my favorite lessons. Students have also been give usernames and passwords for "Splashmath". This is a wonderful app that reinforces what we have been learning this year. Please encourage your child to work on it. Homework is being assigned on this as well. Encourage your child to study vocabulary words as well. This chapter has a ton. I have created a set of cards on "Quizlet." Type in: https://quizlet.com/join/UYnrGjYn9.  We continue with our "mad minute drills." Students must master a fact to advance to the next one. Keep practicing times tables. Students must study times tables each night. We also work on "Spiral Review" questions each day to reinforce concepts we have learned all through the year!
