Welcome to Grade 4B!!!! I know that we are going to have a super, fun-filled year!! My name is Ms. Nicodemi. I teach Math and Science.. I am very excited to be able to continue to use our EnVision math series. It is filled with wonderful activities, manipulatives, and so many fun and exciting ways to approach math. We will be working with Math centers, playing fun math games, and making use of our wonderful SmartTV and our IXL program. I always try to make Math a subject that children look forward to learning, and will continue to love well into their adult years. We will continue to facilitate our Science series entitled "Dimensions." which explores many different aspects of Science : the human body, weather, the Solar System, plants, animals, land formations, and much more. We will be gearing our Math and Science to "STEM" which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, so that I can better prepare your child for college and various careers. Math portals will also be available for you and your child to use at home for extra practice and to gain maximum understanding of the subject matter for that topic. A username and password will be provided for your child.
And now a little bit about myself..... I have been teaching for 35 years, 11 years at Good Shepherd Academy in Nutley teaching first grade and 24 years at School 7 teaching fourth grade. I received my BA in education from Kean University and a Masters in Administration and Supervision from Montclair State University. In 2010, I was the recipient of the Governor's Recognition Award for Teacher of the Year at School 7. I have always had a love for teaching ,so to be able to do this job for so many years has been extremely satisfying for me.
This year, you will find all homework assignments, long term assignments and projects, and any important news or information posted here. Please check your child's homework folder and planner every night. Also, your child's "Thursday Folder" will be sent home on a weekly basis. It will be filled with graded tests, homework, and classwork. Please check the folder and send it back to school the following day, signed, with the appropriate box checked on the form stapled to the front of the folder. Please keep all the papers at home, except for failed tests, which must be signed and returned to me. Report cards, when available, may be viewed on line through OnCourse. A username and password was provided to each family in the past. If you are new to the district or cannot remember this information, you must contact the office and Mrs. Ruiz will assist you.
