Welcome to Mrs. Beal's
    4th Grade Class
    Thank you for visiting my site.  This is always an exciting time of year.  I love working with a new community of learners.   My goal is to make your child feel important, unique, and loved as they develop into readers, writers, and language users.  I will be challenging your child to excel in a nurturing, positive manner.  
    I am one of five,4th grade teachers.  I team teach with Mrs. Witsaman (math and skills block) and Mrs. Bell (writing and science). I teach reading and social studies. Mrs. Howell and Mrs. Adkins complete our team of five and rotate on a two-man team.  
    We participate in a reading workshop model.  We read every day.  Throughout the week, your child will be working with me, working with peers, and reading independently.  We will establish goals, think, respond, and talk about text in various ways.  Your child will grow so much as a reader!   
    In social studies, we examine the history of Texas from the early beginnings to the present.    We will discuss important events, issues and individuals.   
    We are a Liink campus, and this year 4th grade will be implementing this active, engaged learning process for our students. LiiNK
    This will be a fabulous year.  Thank you in advance for your support.  I look forward to working in this partnership with you.
