5th Grade Language Arts
Dear Parents and Guardians:
I am excited to welcome you and your child to 5th grade at Steelton-Highspire Elementary school. Our fifth grade team includes Mr. Houck and me. Please check out his website, too. I will be teaching Language Arts skills ( Reading, Grammar and Writing) and Social Studies. Mr. Houck will be teaching Science and Math. We aim to promote strong study habits, rigor in learning, responsibility and organizational skills.
During the 2020-2021 school year, we will use materials to research and apply our acquired knowledge. During the COVID shutdown, I will be posting daily assignments and learning sites on Google Classroom, as well as, providing a textbook and the literature book, Hoot. Homework is assigned Monday through Thursday with some assignments extending through the weekend. Reading a book of one's choice for 75+ minutes, per week, is highly encouraged and expected.
I look forward to meeting each of you and working together as your child learns and grows. Your involvement and our open communication is very important to your son's/ daughter's success. Please sign up for Class Dojo - a free app for us to easily stay connected. You can also reach me by phone or email.
