Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to 5th Grade! I look forward to a year of learning and growth and look forward to meeting each one of you! I will be teaching your children ELA and Religion this year.

In ELA, we will be working on grammar, vocabulary, spelling and also following NYS modules. These books will be supplied to your children:

Grammar Workshop, Level Blue (publisher; Sadlier)

Vocabulary Workshop, Level Blue (publisher: Sadlier)

ELA module packets

Books that you must buy and we are using in class are:

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry

The Boy Who Invented TV: The Story of Philo Farnsworth by Kathleen Krull

Promises to Keep by Sharon Robinson

We will start the first trimester with reading Number the Stars by Lois Lowry. Your child will need a ¼ or ½ binder with this unit.

In Religion, we will be learning about the sacraments. Fr. Bissex will be visiting and teaching the class one day each week. We will be attending mass , and we will be using the workbook Christ in Us.

Here are some important things to know:

  • Each child is expected to come to class prepared each day.

  • The ELA module packet must be kept safe and neat. I will not be making more copies.

  • Grading criteria for ELA is: module packet and notebook checks, quizzes (take home and in class) , Mid-Module and End-of Module Assessments, projects and class participation.

  • Grading criteria for religion is: notebook checks, quizzes (take home and in-school), tests, projects and class participation.

  • All important information is on my website and homework will be posted on the calendar.

If you have any concerns/questions, please contact me via e-mail: I look forward to getting to know you and your children!
