“Courage. Kindness. Friendship. Character. These are the qualities that define us as human beings, and propel us, on occasion, to greatness.” ~ R.J. Palacio, Wonder
WELCOME everyone to 5th grade, your last year in elementary school. We will be having an exciting year ahead. You will be working with me for Language Arts and Science; and you will be switching for Social Studies and Math with Mrs. Rossi.
5th grade is a very busy year. We will be doing a lot to prepare for your move to the middle school and hopefully you will learn some good study and organization skills. We do many team activities with all of the other 5th grade classes, so you will have an opportunity to see all of your friends from the past.
This website is meant to be a useful tool for parents and students. Please use it to check our CALENDAR for upcoming long-term assignments and events, find academic resources, as well as NEWS and information. You can find activities for each unit that we are working on in SOCIAL STUDIES. The ELA and SPELLING sections are where you'll find lots of helpful information. Check out the MATH section as well to see outlines and related links for each unit! Be sure to check out some of the fantastic LINKS that I've posted for SCIENCE!
I hope that you have had a wonderful summer and are ready and excited to start school. Please feel free to stop by anytime to meet me and to look at your new classroom. Get ready to have lots of fun and to learn a lot. Be sure to check out news in this website throughout the year.
