My Students

My fifth grade inclusion classroom is made up of diverse learners from a small town in western MA. My students are working hard to better themselves each day so that they can gain the skills necessary to be productive members of society and overcome the challenges that many encounter in our high poverty community.

Together, we take pride in our accomplishments and grow immensely as thinkers, readers, and writers over our year in fifth grade.

We love our time together!

My Project

Our 5th grade classroom will be embarking on a journey with Lewis and Clark via our cross curricular unit on The Louisiana Purchase and the Corps of Discovery. During Reading, Writing, and Social Studies, we will learn about the inspirational and exciting journey Lewis and Clark took across the new nation.

The "You Wouldn't Want to" series is jam packed with information that is presented in a such dynamic way that it engages even the most reluctant readers.

My students would greatly benefit from having copies of these books. As a culminating project for our unit, students will write a narrative during which they take on the role of a member of the Corps of Discovery. The background knowledge they will gain from this book series will help them be confident, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic writers during this task.
