Hello, my name is Amanda McDonald and I have been teaching 4th grade for 4 years. I love my job and feel that it is the calling on my life. For 2 years I taught all subjects, but 4th grade has departmentalized and now I teach Math, Science, and Social Studies to about 40 students. I am always looking for new and better ways to teach . My goal is to make learning fun for my students! www.mcdonaldgrade4.blogspot.com
I like to teach math as kinesthetically as possible, and include as many fun aspects as I can! I use a lot of manipulatives, games, songs, and group work to try and make math learning fun! Math is my favorite subject and I want teach in a way that my kids will love it as much as I do!
