Hello Gunning Gang and Families!
I’m Katrina Gunning and I will be your 4th grade teacher this year! I am starting my 22nd year at Doyle and I love teaching the "north wingers". I can’t wait to share so many memories with you this year!
My summer vacation was fun and busy. I completed many household projects and I went to Spring Lake, NJ with my family and also visited Southern California to spend time with my brother, his wife and my niece and nephew. I also taught Extended School Year (ESY) at Groveland Elementary.
In fourth grade, we explore many fascinating topics like: Matter, Electricity, The Water Cycle, and all the regions of the good ole U.S.A.! You will also learn about our home state of Pennsylvania in detail. You will enhance your understanding of many math concepts and delve even more into exciting problem solving opportunities through our Math in Focus program! We will READ, READ, READ both fiction and non-fiction! You will read deeply and pay close attention to authors’ craft as they write. Speaking of writing, you will write a narrative, opinion piece, research, and an informational piece. I am so excited! Are you?
Please check the fourth-grade supply list located on our website. It would be greatly appreciated if you could have all your supplies gathered by the first day of school on September 5th. Please label all of them with your name and we will organize everything during the first week of school.
Until then, enjoy your last few weeks of summer! Make some special memories and be ready to share them with us on September 5th
Mrs. Gunning :)
