The 5th Grade Class of firstname.lastname@example.orgIowa Testing 1/15 and 1/16!
Additional School Supplies: Your child will not need the 1 1/2" -3 ring binder from the supply list if they are in the Clodfelter/ Fischer pod, but we would like them to have colored markers, one black sharpie marker, and two red pens instead. Thank you so much for adjusting.Thank you for visiting our classroom web page. I will be your child's teacher for the 2018-2019 school year. I received a masters degree in education from Wright State University. Besides teaching, I enjoy water skiing, jogging with our rescue dog Bow, snowmobiling, and spending time with Mark and Mitch. For the 2018-2019 school year, I will be teaching Social Studies and Language Arts. Mrs. Clodfelter will teach Science and Math. Below you will find weekly plans and general information.Spelling: Weekly Spelling TestsThe spelling test will be given on Friday or the last day in the week. Your child is allowed to take the spelling workbook home over the weekend to complete two pages ahead of the due date, however the majority of the workbook pages need to be completed in the given class time.AR: Each student is required to read two Accelerated Reader books by the end of each quarter. I really need your help encouraging your child to read two AR books a quarter. One book needs to be non-fiction and the other a fiction book. Many students scramble to read the two books the last two days of the quarter and then don't do as well on the AR test. Students also tend to choose books below their reading range and then the benefit of reading is not there. If you would help them remember to read when they don't have homework, it would cut down on the stress of reading a book in a short amount of time. Thank you for any support you can give your child. Quarter two, two AR books are due on 3/6/19.
Brain Pop is a great way to learn about Science and Social Studies as well as review lessons that we have learned about this year.
