Mrs. Rosenberger's Fifth Grade

March 6, 2015

The Week That Really Wasn't!

Well, hopefully that was the last of the snow for this winter! Just a few quick notes...

  • The students will still be having their science quiz on Tuesday. If your child did not bring the notes home, they can check Google Classroom for the notes to study from.
  • Tuesday will be day 1 of the cycle. We are skipping day 5 and 6. Check the schedules below to see next week's specials and events.


Each of the other fifth grade classes have recently been given ten Chromebooks like I have had in my room. This gives us the opportunity to allow each child to have their own computers to work on in the classroom when we need them. It is wonderful, but one problem we have is that when 20 computers all are speaking at the same time, it gets quite noisy and is difficult to concentrate. If possible, could you send a pair of ear buds or head phones that your child can use? The children can take them home at the end of the year. I wouldn't send any that are expensive. Quite honestly, a pair from the Dollar General would probably work just fine. If you can't, that's fine too. I'm just trying to see if we can cut down the distractions a bit when we are all using the computers at the same time.

Mrs. Rosenberger

I've been teaching at Halifax Elementary for 24 years. I've taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades as well as computers for grades 2-6. I'm married and have two children, a daughter who is 20 and a 17-year-old son who is a senior in high school. My husband and I will be empty nesters in just a few short months! When I am not teaching, thinking about teaching, or looking for new ideas to help my teaching, I love to read and crochet.
