Welcome Back!

Hello Parents and 5th Grade Students,

Welcome back to another exciting year at Fox Hill School.  I'm looking forward to meeting you in the near future.  Until that time I hope you will take a few minutes to look over this blog.  Check out old posts as well as some of the great links to learning resources on the internet.  You can get a good idea of how the 5th Grade operates by becoming familiar with this blog and following the links to the blogs of my colleagues- Mrs. Lee, Mr. Lisano and Mrs. Jaffe.  The links to Norman's News will give you an introduction to the curriculum that is covered in 5th grade.

My homework is posted daily and the posts are archived until the end of the month.  So, if you are absent you can always check to see what you missed.  Mr. Lisano and I are a team in terms of teaching science and social studies.  If you are in my homeroom I am your science teacher and Mr. Lisano is your social studies teacher.  We do regroup students for reading and writing instruction. However, as with 4th grade your homeroom teacher is your math teacher.  I will post Mr. Lisano's social studies homework on my blog but since ELA homework is often more involved than science and social studies homework you will want to check your ELA teacher's blog for his or her assignments on a daily basis.

I hope this brief introduction to my classroom blog was helpful.

See you soon!
