“Reading should not be presented to children as a chore or a duty. It should be offered to them as a precious gift." Kate DiCamillo
We are a Community of Readers, Writers & Historians
Welcome to fifth grade! This webpage is a place for you to learn about me (your teacher!) and our classroom. You will find links for learning and exploring cool topics, homework, upcoming events, clubs and downloads of important papers for both students and parents. We also use a Google classroom site for many assignments. My email is posted above. I update our website often throughout the year. Use Mrs. Sidebottom's webpage for math/science & research writing.
