Hello Fifth Grade Families,
I hope all of my fifth graders and their families are safe and staying healthy. As you already know we are not able to complete our year together. We will not have any more morning meetings, or share laughter and amazing class discussions. My heart is saddened to know that I won't see those smiling faces every morning. I have been blesssed to be your child's teacher for the past year and a half. Thank you for the support you have provided during this journey. I truly LOVE each and every one of these little humans (although, many of them are taller than me). I have taught them and I have learned from them. I am still here to help, if you need me I will help. My office hours are from 12:00 noon thru 2:00 p.m. I am a text, email or phone call away. Please access my resources on my website and have our fifth graders continue to login to our Google classroom. New activities will be posted beginning April 6, 2020. They will continue weekly thru the end of the year.
Wishing you continued safety and health.
A note from Fifth grade:
Unfortunately, our school year on-campus experience has come to an unexpected halt. Even though this may bring challenges, we are happy that you all are home safe with your families.
While you are at home, we would like to encourage you to participate in various aspects of virtual learning. Please continue to visit our online resources such as: Dreambox, SolPass, Jlab, ReadTheory, Readworks, Istation and XtraMath. Starting the week of April 6th, as we receive more directives, additional resources and lessons will be provided on Google Classroom and on our class webpages. These online tools are resources that are being offered to you. Let's keep our brains sharp!
If you need help or assistance, please call/text/ or email your child's teacher, Monday-Friday 12:00 noon-2:00pm. We are here for you!
Tips For Parents Teaching At Home:

- Encourage problem solving.
- Play games and try to make the learning fun.
- Cook together and involve children in everyday activities.

- Let kids share ownership of their learning.
