Hey, I'm Ms. Thorne! I am from Las Vegas, NV. I attended college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. This is my second year teaching 4th grade. I have a two-year-old puppy named Moose. She and I enjoy the outdoors, all types of sports, although soccer is our favorite, and spending time with our family and friends. I have a passion for learning and making it fun in the process!
There is no other grade quite like 4th grade. This year we will be exploring the differences of Utah’s past and present as well as Utah’s history through each of our subject matters this year.
We will be having a county project which will help us learn more about Utah! Through science we will also discover and build understanding of Utah’s environments including weather, the water cycle, rocks, fossils, soils, and plants and animals. In language arts and writing we will have the opportunity to learn about different cultures through our reading and writing. To solidify our knowledge we will be integrating writing with all of our other key subjects. We will learn how to write opinion pieces, persuasive essays, personal narratives, informative essays, and poetry.
In math we will stretch our knowledge by broadening our skills in place value skills, multiplication facts, double digit multiplication, long division, fractions, decimals, and MORE!
