Ms. Herriman plays an educational game with her students!

Also, her favorite movie The Breakfast Club. Ms. Herriman enjoys all genres of music.

Ms. Herriman changes the rules!

Currently in her classroom, fourth graders are using informational text to research animals defense mechanisms. The students are also learning to find the main idea with supporting details, paraphrase, and summarize what they have read. Ms. Herriman’s goal for her students is to instill a love of reading. She hopes that the students will make connections to the books that we read together or books that I recommend for them to read independently.
