Welcome to our 4th grade Reading and Social Studies Classroom!
My name is Mrs Durst! I have a senior in high school, Braden. Landon is in junior high as a 7th grader and Alexia is in the 5th grade. We had the opportunity to visit Belize this summer and see the ancient Mayan ruins! Click on the Social Studies tab for more pictures of the ruins that we get learn about in class this year!
Every summer I spend time at City Church. Last summer Mrrs. Roberts joined me and we had the opportunity this summer to pack over 1,000 sack lunches in Amarillo and then go on a 3 hour bike ride to deliver the lunches to children in the area! Talk about tired, but we had fun doing what we love, taking care of kids!
This summer all the teachers were busy LEARNING!! Mrs. James and I spent a week in Houston one summer for teacher trainings learning new ways to teach! Another new thing we got to learn was how to buy fresh fish in a fish market!
One of my favorite things to do, especially in summer is READ! I read 5 chapter books this summer. How many books did you read this summer? Vote on my web poll at the TOP RIGHT of the page to let me know how many books you read this summer!
