Mr. Justin Mazzucco
Greetings 4th Grade Families!
My name is Mr. Mazzucco, and I teach 4th grade here at Lalor Elementary School. We have a lot of learning ahead of us this year in a number of different subjects and topics. You will be amazed at how much your child is going to learn and grow over these next roughly 10 months or so.
This will be my 7th year in education and my first full year here at Lalor. I graduated from The College of New Jersey back in 2014 with my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education (K-6). Before that, I attended and graduated from Raritan Valley Community College with my Associate of Arts in Education (K-12). I have my certification for NJ in Elementary Ed (K-6). I live in Ringoes, NJ with my family and enjoy watching/playing sports in my free time.
I consider the opportunity to work with your child a privilege, and look forward to all of the great things that we will do together.
I look forward to sharing an exciting and rewarding year with you and your child. We have so much ahead of us. This year's objectives are to help prepare your child for 5th grade emotionally, socially, and academically in a positive and nurturing environment. Below you will find some of the skills we will focus on in fourth grade:
Use more advanced reading comprehension strategies
Compare and contrast information read
Writing competently for many purposes
Learn new vocabulary words using context clues
Experiencing a variety of literary genres
Multiply three- and four-digit numbers, including numbers with zero
Understand improper fractions and mixed numbers
Solve multi-step word problems
Divide larger numbers
Exploring probability and using data
Daily math homework will be assigned, as well as 20 minutes of reading each night. It is important that students practice at school AND at home to continue building strengths in important skills.
