Mrs. Glass' Class
Welcome to 5th grade and thank you for visiting our ARE classroom website! For parents, this site acts as a resource for information on 5th Grade, as well as for my own classroom specifics. Some of the information may be presented as links, attachments, pages, or typed content.
Fifth graders are naturally curious creatures and together we will tap into this sense of wonder to fuel the thinking, questionining, persuading and justifying skills that form the backbone of lifelong learning. Our work together will be relevant to the world we live in. Together we will ask ouselves big questions about our planet and it's inhabitants and what we can do to make it a better place for all through authentic research, questioning, higher level thinking and social action. Through this work we will explore, develop and reflect on our own character traits to prepare us for the increased responsibilities and independence needed for a successful transition to middle school. Consider this final year of elementary school to be a guided transition to help students enter their middle school years armed with the organization, time management and self-advocacy skills that will help them thrive as learners. It is an honor to work with you and your student this year, thank you for trusting me with such an important year of development in your child's life!
