This is going to be a FANTASTIC year!
5th grade brings lots of growth, challenges, increases in freedom and independence!
Whats the Year Going to Be Like?
Students will be participating in projects, collaboration, and expanding their minds
as we talk about complex issues and topics in every content area.
My goal is to prepare them for their middle school experience and ensure their success
as they learn to navigate their emotions, relationships, and academic careers.
We will read fantastic books such as The Book Thief and A Wrinkle in Time.
We will investigate science topics such as physics and anatomy.
Take a peek at the syllabus class expectations to find out more about what we will be learning this year!
How Do I Run My Class?
My up and foremost goal is to attend to every students well being and confidence.
I implement mindfulness and kindness in the classroom.
This is done through a mindfulness desk all students have access too
anytime they need a break. Students also will
participate in mindfulness activities, which teach them
to manage their own emotions and recognize arising thoughts.
In addition, I also have kindness cards. If I or another student see's their peer being kind,
they can give them a kindness card and it will be presented to the class
and posted on the wall.
I also implement snack time and brain breaks throughout the day.
Students are handled with care and love!
I would love to hear from you!
I am best available through email.
You will receive a weekly newsletter regarding what
is going on in the classroom and any updates.
I also do positive phone calls home and fantastic tickets that are sent home
for a job well done!
I cant wait to get to know you and your family!
