A few reminders-
*The best way to contact me is by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, I am busy working with students and may not be able to answer the phone.
* Independent and Responsible are the words to describe fifth graders. Please assist your child but don't rush to rescue. The mistakes and consequences in fifth grade are pretty minor and will help them learn along the way and become more independent and responsible.
*Look over the planner daily and check in with your child. If your child struggles to complete homework/daily class work we will set up a more structured check in system between student/parent/teacher.
*Students are excited to blog and document their learning. Check out your child's blog by clicking on their name. Please comment on their learning!
The pictures below show parents working together to learn about our Units of Inquiry and solving Math Puzzles.
Next week Ms. Shigehara will announce the two boys and two girls that will represent our class.
