About Mrs. Witthuhn


 

Hello Parents,

My name is Rebecca Witthuhn and I am excited to be your child’s fourth grade teacher this year! I would love to tell you more about myself.  I graduated from Arizona State University with my B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Child Development. This will be my ninth year teaching at Mustang Centennial. I taught first grade for 5 years, third grade for 2 years and this is my third year in fourth grade. 

I am a proud mother of fifteen-year-old boy/girl twins and an eight-year-old daughter.  I am fortunate enough that my children have taught me more than I could ever teach them, and lucky for you, it has made me a much better teacher!  This year, my husband Daniel and I celebrated our 16th year of marriage.  My family is completed with a 8 year old German Shepherd named Pepper and 10 chickens (all of which are properly named)!  I am an avid runner and hiker who loves camping and reading. I am also slightly obsessed with Sonic Cherry Coke Zero, cashews, Twizzlers and beef jerky! 

 Warmly,

Rebecca Witthuhn 

 

 


Munchies & Slurps

Snacks 
Learning can be difficult with grumbling bellies, therefore students are welcome to bring a small snack to eat in class!  Please make sure the snack can easily be eaten. Avoid complicated snacks that involve dipping, stirring or the need for utensils. These snacks make it difficult for your child work while she/he are eating. Candy will not be allowed as a snack. Due to COVID 19 precautions, I will not be able to pass out snacks to students who forget theirs! 
Drinks
Drinks are allowed in class, however it must be water only. Because our water fountains will be shut off for COVID 19 precautions, it is imperative that students bring water to stay hydrated. When selecting an appropriate water bottle for class, please make sure that the contents don't spill easily. Screw on lids with straws help minimize spills when they occur.

Homework

Homework is an important component of your child's grades. Please make sure students return assignments by the appropriated due dates.
 
Reading Comprehension Passages
Students will receive 4 reading passages each Monday. Students are to read one passage each night and answer the comprehension questions for that passage. Students should be reading the passages and answering questions on their own. Parents should review their child's work and make sure they are on the right track, before the assignment is returned on Friday.  
Everyday Math Home Links
Students will bring home Everyday Math Home Links 2-3 times a week. The homelinks that are taken home are skills that have been taught in class that day. Home Links are always due the next day. 
Spelling Lists
Spelling words for the week are sent home on Monday's. Please have your child practice each evening, if only for a few minutes! Tests will be given each Friday.
Reflex Math 
Reflext Math will need to be practiced at least 4 times a week, until a "green light" is obtained. Don't worry parents, we will spend two days in class metting this goal!  That leaves two more green lights that need to be obtained at home.
