Welcome to Grade 5
Fifth grade is an important year. They learn to work hard, to share their talents and strengths while possibly discovering new ones. They will cultivate friendships, learn, laugh and achieve. I have many exciting activities and projects planned and am looking forward to working with you and your child this year.
Voyages in English for Grades 4 & 5 fully prepares students to become literate masters of the written and spoken word. The components of this program focus on grammar, writing, and communication. The result is better writers, readers, listeners, and speakers. This month we will be focusing on sentences, nouns,and prepositions. We will continue to work on our writing skills through a variety of assignments and activities.
This month, we will focus on Advent. Hope to see you at our Mass on December 8th.
Being a teacher has been a dream of mine since I was ten years old. In 1987, I graduated from Salem State University and started my career. I have had the privilege of teaching at St. Pius V school since 2004. Preparing successful learners in a kind and caring environment has always been a goal of mine. I especially love to find creative ways for the students to share their knowledge.
