Walk-in-Wednesday: 4th Grade with Mrs. Molly Barnett

Happy Thanksgiving Week! We are on break today (November 21st), but we wanted to still share a “Walk-in-Wednesday” for you to enjoy a sneak peek into our ILS 4th grade classroom.

Every week our ILS blog features an update from one of our teachers highlighting what a visitor might observe when they walk into our classrooms. Whether you are unable to join us for a Walk-in-Wednesday tour to see our students and teachers in action, or you would just like to get a better feel for what the experience of a classical Christian education is like at Immanuel, we hope this feature creates a picture of just some of what you might observe if they were to peek into Jr. Kindergarten, or 3rd grade, or Upper School Latin, or any one of our classrooms at ILS. 

This week, join us in 4th grade, as Mrs. Molly Barnett presents a snap-shot of the delightful teaching and learning you may observe if you were to step into her classroom.

We hope you enjoy, and please visit the blog each week as we share additional “Walk-in-Wednesday” features! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Amo, amas, amat ( clap ) amamus amatis amant! (clap) "Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers, but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night." Ready, set, go! Can you count by 5's but begin at 2?

Fourth graders are busy using their minds in tandem with their voices to memorize, recite, express, and learn, all day long. Whether we are reciting our Latin chants, counting aloud in math, or reciting a learned Bible verse, you will definitely hear us in action. Students at this level are master memorizers, and they love playing any game that assists them in this endeavor. I love how my day is filled with joyful rhythms and songs that allow us to learn together. And although there is much delightful noise permeated through our walls, we certainly take time to quiet down, focus, and work independently.
