I absolutely love the energy and creativity that my ten- and eleven-year-old students bring into our classroom every single day. They are full of passion, they love to learn, and they love coming to school. My students come to school from all backgrounds, all cultures, and from all family situations.
My students are energetic fifth graders.
We become a family throughout the year, supporting each other through the good times and challenges, and help each other to master the standards while still making learning fun.
In 5th grade, we study United States history. We learn about the Native Americans, Explorers, Colonies, the American Revolution (Causes and Battles), our New Government, and Western Expansion. The beginning of colonial times are perfectly referenced in the text Blood on the River.
I believe that each student learns better if they each have access to their own text.
I want my students to have that opportunity with this class set of the book Blood on the River.
I would also like to give my students a place to comfortably read on the carpet. The United States classroom rug would be both a learning tool and a comfortable place to sit.
