Stewart, Emily

4th – Teacher - ELA


Welcome Wildcats!

My name is Emily Stewart and I am a 4th grade reading teacher at Sugar Creek Charter School. This will be my seventh year teaching and my fifth year at Sugar Creek. I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA where I went to Washington and Jefferson College for Child Development and Elementary Education with a specialization in Special Education PreK-8; and Duquesne University for a Masters Degree in Elementary Education. I have previously taught second and fourth grade at Charlotte Mecklenburg School District before coming to Sugar Creek. Some of my favorite things include: spending time with my golden retriever Juju, enjoying time with my family and friends, the color pink, and Diet Dr. Pepper. I look forward to a productive year with your scholars!

4th Grade Reading Wit and Wisdom

Wit and Wisdom is the reading curriculum students will be using this year. This program incorporates curated texts, meaningful tasks, and thoughtful learning design to help students develop the knowledge and skills they need to be successful readers, critical thinkers, and effective communicators.

Module 1: The Heart

  • The heart: a literal muscle that sustains human life and a figurative center of emotion, love, and desire. In Grade 4 Module 1, A Great Heart, students explore, challenge, and explain these various meanings of the word heart. The literal and figurative uses of heart are presented through quotations from individuals as diverse as Confucius, Bill Nye (“The Science Guy”), and Helen Keller. To build deeper understanding of the people behind these quotations about heart, students study biographies of Clara Barton, Helen Keller, and Anne Frank. These biographies help students see how the thoughts and actions of people demonstrate great compassion and courage, thus exemplifying a figurative great heart.
