Fifth graders should be studying for the ACRE test every night by reviewing their terms and meanings. We have begun using QUIZLET Live as an additional study tool for this upcoming test, along with daily practice tests on each word bank list.
I am soooo very excited to be teaching your children this year and partnering with you as we take this 5th grade learning journey together: child - parent - and teacher! I promise you that I will challenge your children daily and they will remain challenged throughout this year.
Homework will be assigned and posted on my webpage's homework page. Please help me stress the importance of homework, not only as a reinforcement of what was learned during the day, but also as a means of improving our sense of responsibility and accountability.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns you may have. I usually check my emails during my prep period and try and make it my practice to send an email response in a timely fashion, usually before the close of the day. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Below I will provide you with an overview of what we will be learning in our subjects during the week and will give the children at least one week's notice of a test date. Quizzes may be unannounced.
I update my webpage for the week on a Sunday evening, so if you need "our week at a glance" it should be available to you by that time.
Lastly, thank you for the gift of your child. Thank you for putting your trust and faith in St. Rose of Lima School and in me to teach and guide your most precious possession(s) - intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. Your child's overall well being will always be my main focus.

I will be using the Cornell Note taking method to highlight the important concepts and vocabulary in the different subjects’ chapters that we will be covering. These notes will be placed in their notebooks so when they are preparing for a test, everything they need to know and study will be at their fingertips. I find this method very effective since it zeros in on the points that are most important.
I will be using the REMIND app to remind you of upcoming tests or due dates or other classroom announcements. To join, go to Remind.com and click SIGN IN. Follow directions below to join the correct remind.
