I am Mrs. Calnan, and this year, I will be your math and social studies teacher. In math, we continue with many of the operations that you are familiar with including division, fractions, data, problem solving, geometry, and algebra. You will have the opportunity to build on many of the skills you already have from fourth grade! In social studies, we will explore early civilizations, learn about exploration, and get a greater sense of how our country was founded. We will use our reading and writing skills in both math and social studies to unlock our potential, and learn new things!
I am Mrs. Wilkie, and this year, I will be your ELA and science teacher. Our main focus when we write will be on narrative, persuasive and informative genres. We’ll continue all the great work you started with POW and TIDE to help us communicate our ideas. In Reader’s Workshop, we will practice active reading strategies while exploring new genres, building fluency, and enjoying reading together. In science, we will explore some exciting topics including matter, forces of motion, energy, ecosystems, earth’s place in the universe, earth systems, and engineering. We will have lots of opportunities for hands-on learning as we come to understand more about the world around us!
