Hi! My Name is Jessica Noack and this is my 16th year of teaching!  I taught 6th grade Math for 3 years and this is my 13th year teaching 4th grade Math and Science here at WCES.  My husband Blake and I have two beautiful children.  Our daughter Gracie is going into 8th grade at Willow Wood Junior High. Our son Grayson is going to be a 4th grader here at WCES!  We have a dog named Ciara, she is a rescue dog and has been part of our family for 16 years now.

We also have a new puppy named Lucy, she is a golden retriever! 

 

I grew up right here in Tomball!  I went to Tomball Elementary, Tomball Junior High and graduated from Tomball High School class of 2001, go cougs! My 2nd grade teacher Miss Shepperd was my inspiration to become a teacher.  We still stay in contact and send each other Christmas cards each year. 

 

I went to Sam Houston State University where I earned a Bachelor in Academic Studies and a Minor in Mathematics. I graduated in 2005, go Bearkats! I am also ESL certified.

 

My goal for my classroom is for students to feel safe and comfortable so they can take risks and ask questions without any hesitations. I want my students to learn as much as possible by being actively engaged and by having fun too!

Week 5: September 13-17

Week 5: September 13-17
 
Digital Citizenship Week- students can dress up each day if they like!
I sent the dress up schedule in a separate Edlio.
 
4th grade Parent Orientation is Thursday evening 9/16 starting with a PTO meeting in the cafeteria at 5:30 pm. If you are unable to attend I have included the general presentation all 4th grade teachers will be giving together in the library this year.
 
In Math this week we are adding and subtracting whole numbers. We will also estimate whole numbers to check for reasonableness when adding and subtracting. We will have a daily grade over adding Tuesday and a daily grade on subtracting Thursday. Homework is due Thursday and new homework will go home Friday. We will have another practice multiplication fact check on Friday. These are not a grade, just practice to see what facts we need to focus on. Please check these in your child's Wednesday folder to see how they are doing. Multiplication.com is a great website to help students practice. There are also several apps and good old flashcards work great too! 
 
In science this week we will continue to discuss Matter and its properties. We will test over this unit Wednesday. We will review in class together Tuesday by completing a review sheet with partners and will play Kahoot! Later in the week we will learn about Mixtures and Solutions. Thank you to those who will be volunteering to send in the items needed for our Mixture and Solution snack Friday! 
 
It is going to be a great week, a rainy one I hear! 
Stay safe and dry!

Week 3:August 30-September 3

Week 3:August 30-September 3
 
In math this week, we are continuing our unit on whole # relationship with comparing, ordering, and rounding whole #'s.  We will be doing comparing and order today and Tuesday and will be moving to rounding Wednesday and Thursday.  Homework was sent home Friday last week and is due Thursday.  A new homework will come home this Friday.  We will be having our Place Value Quiz #2 on Friday.  As always, continue to practice math facts at home.  They are the foundation for much of what we do in 4th grade.  
 
In science this week, we will continue with the properties of matter.  We will specifically be talking about the 3 states of matter, their particle size, and how they move.  Along with how adding or taking away heat causes the change in the state of matter.  We will be having a daily grade on Friday.
 
I hope you all have a good week!

Week 1 and 2

Parents,
 
We wrapped up our first week, and it was a great one! I truly have enjoyed getting to know your sweet kiddos. Thank you for sharing them with me! 
 
Just a few friendly reminders, Math and Science Notebooks are due tomorrow! I sent home a flyer with directions in student's homework folders Wednesday (yellow folder), we also wrote this down in their planner. Also, their science safety contract needs to be signed and returned tomorrow as well (It is also inside the homework folder). If your student hasn't brought in their headphones yet, make sure to send them in a labeled zippy bag soon. They will keep them in their backpacks so if they only have 1 pair they will come home each day. 
 
Homework will always be inside the yellow folder, all assignments and important reminders will be written inside their planner each week. Those are both great places to check when doing a check in with your child. In 4th grade we are really trying to get THEM in charge of their assignments and other important things. When they say "Mom forgot to put my planner in my bag" or "Dad forgot to sign my form", I always say it is their responsibility, not their parents. Putting more on them will make them more independent and ready for 5th! I know! I can't believe it either. I also have a 4th grader so I'm right there with you all! 
 
In Math this week we are jumping right into place value. We will read and write numbers up to the billions! We will also represent large numbers in various forms. I will send home homework Friday and it will be due the following Thursday. Again, I will communicate this with your child, they will write it in their planner and it should be located in their yellow folder. More frequent reminders and check-ins might be needed in the beginning but lets work together to really start pulling back and see if they initiate a good homework routine. I will be communicating with them a lot about this.. I promise. :-) Also, their flashcards will be in their back packs so they can practice at school and at home. We will be working on multiplication facts up to 12 daily! 
 
In Science this week we are continuing with lab safety. We will have a required safety test this Wednesday, don't worry! They will be fine, we will prepare together at school. Later in the week, we will begin describing Matter by its physical properties. 
 
I am very excited to work with you all this year. It is truly a team effort, so close communication is key! Reach out anytime if you have a question or concern. My job is to prepare these kiddos for 5th grade math and science and I take that very seriously. However, preparing them to be kind, empathetic, and establish good work ethics is very important to me too! 
 
I promise my posts won't always be this long and am looking forward to a great year! 
 
Thanks,

Welcome to 4th Grade!

Welcome to 4th Grade!

You’ve made it to your final year of elementary school, and we are thrilled to have you in our classes this year.  Fourth grade is a year full of excitement and challenge, getting you ready for the years to come, and we will make each day our Masterpiece!

The first day of school is Tuesday, August 17.  Please bring your supplies, a healthy snack, and a water bottle.  If you’d like to wear a mask, please bring a few along as well.  You will be keeping most of your things in your backpack.  It’s best to have your belongings labeled, just in case something gets misplaced.  

For the first day, please know your lunch plan (school meals are free for all students) and your afternoon transportation.  It’s best to wear athletic shoes so you’re ready for PE and recess. 

See you Tuesday!
