Welcome to Fifth Grade!
This begins my thirteenth year at Holy Cross School. I cannot imagine being any place else! This is a wonderful family to be part of. I have been married for forty-three years to Scott and we have two daughters and one and half grand-daughters! I am responsible for teaching Reading and Social Studies to all 5th graders.
My reading program consists of reading ten different genres of novels during the course of the year. We complete the reading many different ways, depending on the novel selection. Both fifth grades are also incorporating the STEM approach with two different novels this year.
Social Studies in the fifth grade begins with Geography. We then spend the year on learning how our great nation was formed. During the course of the year our learning is based on textbook, research, and projects.
The remainder of the curriculum I teach covers Religion and the Sacraments, Grammar, and Writing,
