    Welcome to the new school year!
    I hope you received the card I sent to your home to welcome you to Fifth Grade!
    Students, please be prepared for school by: getting a great night's sleep, and  having the materials you need every day. This might include some pens, pencils, paper, notebooks, folders, and a binder, but it is up to you to bring what you need. 
    You can always email me if you need help - chertaylor@paps.net

    Welcome to the 23-24 school year! As a fifth-grade teacher, I have high expectations of my students.  Being able to write clearly to communicate with others is an essential skill that is needed in middle school, high school, the workplace, college and beyond.  Students in my classes will be writing every day... to inform, to explain, to give opinions, to tell personal stories, and to have fun!  We will be exploring many different writing styles to help improve our own writing, and we will be reading some great examples of various writing styles also.  Since reading is another essential skill, we will be reading every day... students will have the opportunity to read texts that interest them.  I plan to not only teach, mentor, and guide my students, but to also have lots of fun while we are learning.  Students should come to class prepared to work hard every day and put in their very best effort into reading and writing. In math we will continue to use Eureka Math 2, which I am still getting used to! In social studies this year, we will explore the geography of our planet, and learn how America was explored and settled. Lastly, during science we will begin with an exploration of the Patterns of Earth and Sky, followed by Modeling Matter, The Earth System, and Ecosystem Restoration. It is going to be a great and successful year!
