Dear Students and Families,


We hope that you are prepared for a fantastic 5th grade school year! Be sure to check back to this page often, as we will be continuing to add many exciting features. This will be our primary class page and we will post updates and resources to support your learning. Remember to read and write daily, practice opportunities for real world math, and engage in problem solving activities that challenge you. We look forward to learning with you and sharing our collective knowledge in a safe environment. We welcome all students, especially, creative thinkers, different opinions, and driven leaders. Be prepared to explain your ideas, make observations, give informed reports, and deliver thorough conclusions. Below, you will find a brief list of 5th and 6th grade recommended reading, links to National Geographic, Go Math, Newsela, and other technology resource challenges. Please use these links to continue your practice throughout this school year.
