Any day spent with you is my favorite
day. So, today is my new favorite day!
~Winnie the Pooh...............can't wait
to spend another day with you all.:)
Happy Spring and Happy National Poetry Month!
I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy during this very uncertain
time. I miss being in the classroom with you all each day and cannot wait to
return to room 120. As you work through the review packets please keep
in mind the great online resources we've been using all year too!
You have logins for sites such as RazKids, Sumdog, FastForWord,
Reflex math, Kahn Academy, Think Central, Qwerty Town Typing
and Prodigy Math. Many museums and zoos have
some wonderful virtual field trips to check out.
Generation Genius has some great science videos and mini lessons.
Be sure to kick back with a chapter book and/or keep a
journal of your daily routine. Please email me if you need any
help getting onto these educational sites.
Hope to see you all very soon!

I am very excited to meet all of you and get started on a fun filled year of learning! This year we will journey through many different topics including rocks and minerals, Earth's systems, solar system, ecosystems, multiplication, division, fractions, division, geometry, decimals, writing workshop (memoirs, DBQ essays, personal narrative, persuasive essays, poetry), North America, early civilizations, technology and of course reading, reading, reading! We will be reading some very engaging novels including Wonder, Tuck Everlasting and Esperanza Rising just to name a few. Please check out the fifth grade supply list located on the school district website or here on my site. Please visit the resources section for helpful sites that we use in the classroom. Usernames and passwords for all are coming soon.
Just a reminder that both Fast ForWord and Raz Kids can be used in place of
your nightly reading assignment.
Please send an email or give a call if you would like to sign up to be a quest speaker.
Students are all set up on Think Central which means they can access the Journeys textbook at home. Notices have gone home with usernames and passwords but can also be found in the front of the organizer. Please also look there for other helpful sites such as Raz- kids, Sum Dog, Fast ForWord and Xtra-Math.
