Instructor: Ms. Raynor
Welcome to a new year in 5th Grade! I am very excited to have been able to move to 5th grade with the students. I will be teaching reading and North American geography in the morning, then again in the afternoon to Ms. Zutes' class.
In reading we will begin by talking about making connections while we read. We will make text to self connections, text to world connections, and text to text connections.
In geography we will begin by identifying and reading a variety of maps and then move into the Northeast region of the United States.
The amount of homework will be limited but it is very important that the homework sent home is completed and returned on time. Students also need to read for at least 20 minutes a night.
I'm looking forward to a wonderful year!
