Welcome to 5th Grade! If you are in my homeroom, I will be teaching you Math and Science in the morning. In the afternoon, my class switches with Ms. Raynor's class, and you will learn Reading, Writing, and North America Geography with Ms. Raynor.
In Math, we will begin with a review of Place Value, Addition and Subtraction. This year we will also have Units on Multiplication and Division; other Units include Fractions and Decimals Computation, Measurement, Geometry, Algebra, Data Analysis and Statistics, and Probability.
In Science we will study the Scientific Method, Geology, Oceanography, Matter, Diversity of Life, Light and Sound. Since we have an SOL in Science this year, we will also be reviewing the 4th grade curriculum which includes Solar System, Weather, Electricity, Motion, Ecosystems, Virginia Natural Resources, and Plants.
For you to be at your very best, please get a good night sleep every night, eat a healthy breakfast in the morning, and complete your homework assignments. Also, ask questions in class if you do not understand something. Answering your questions to help you better understand is why I am here!
Let us all have a fantastic year!
