Mrs. Walldorf's Classroom News
Off to a Great Start!
I have enjoyed getting to know your students and watching us begin to "gel" as a group. When your students come in the classroom, they are doing a super job at getting unpacked, looking up the two science words of the day, and then being ready to begin our science class. We have been exploring our new online science techbook, Discovery Education. It is going to be an amazing supplement to our curriculum! More about what we are doing in science below.
They have quickly caught on to the routines of fifth grade and the days are just flying by!
Room Parent Needed!
We are still in need of a room parent. Fifth grade is pretty simple compared to most other grades. Let me know if you could help. Thank you!
Please join us for Curriculum Night, Tuesday, September 13th at 5:45 pm. After the PTA meeting, the fifth grade teachers will share what your children will be learning and doing this year. 5th grade will be meeting in the Media Center. Also, Wednesday (Sept. 14th) is an Early Release Day.
Students need to look over their Glossary Words (which are found in their science binders) a couple nights each week. They will occasionally have additional work to complete or study at home, but it will always be something we have covered in class first.
