Welcome to Fifth Grade - Team 5B!


    Dear Fifth Grader,


    Summer vacation  has certainly flown by! I hope you and your family had an awesome vacation and are ready for an exciting year in fifth grade. 

    I have been in and out of school getting the classroom and the science lab ready for a busy year ahead and I can't wait to meet you!


    You will have two core teachers for fifth grade.  I will be your math and science teacher. Mr. Mack  will be your language arts and social studies teacher. In 

    math this year we will start by reviewing place value.  We will also spend some time with fractions!  Fractions are everywhere!  In science, we take a hands on

    approach to learning and keep a science notebook to document all our learning.


    Please  make sure to have an independent reading book to bring with you to school each day as there will be some time after lunch for you to relax and read.


    Enjoy the rest of you summer-See you soon!


    Mrs. Smith
