Welcome to Fifth Grade!

I am very excited to begin another new year at Oakland!  We will be very busy this first week, getting to know each other, learning our Whole Brain Teaching (WBT) five rules, learning WBT’s teach/okay, and becoming familiar with the level one scoreboard.  We will also begin learning about the Daily Five (which for us will be modified to the Daily Four).  This literacy instructional program allows for students to work independently on their reading and writing, to work with a partner in reading, and to work on word work alone and in pairs. Key words we will explore and practice together are independence, practice, urgency, choice, and stamina.  This week we will implement Read to Self and Writing Work.  The goal here is to foster independent learners and strong literacy reading and writing skills.  The Daily Four will also allow the special education teacher, classroom paraprofessional, and me to work with individuals, pairs, and groups of no more than three students at a time on targeted individual skills and enrichment.  Once we have the Daily Four in place in language arts, we will being using it in math also.

In math, we will begin the first nine weeks with SOL 5.1 decimals and rounding.  During our science time, we will begin with scientific investigation (SOL 5.1), learn about sound (SOL 5.2) and light (SOL 5.3), while revisiting the fourth grade skills of Force, Motion, and Energy (SOL 4.2), and Electricity and Magnetism (SOL 4.3).  In social studies we will begin with maps, longitude and latitude, and geography. Mrs. Griffin will be pushing in with us on Thursdays during science.

All students will begin by choosing classroom books and magazines to read during Read to Self time. We will be building our independent reading stamina to fifteen minutes and ultimately thirty minutes.  Our goal is to work in each of the four stations (Read to Self, Writing, Read to Someone and Word Work) for thirty minutes each.

Grab your thinking cap before you leave the house Tuesday morning, and get ready for a year filled with expanding your horizons!

Winters’ Words for the Week!!

“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”  –Lao Tzu

Welcome to a brand new school year! I am truly excited to begin this journey of knowledge with my students and their families. We will take each day step by step, and make the most of each day. There is a great amount of information that we will be covering in each subject. It is imperative that the students stay focused, and be prepared to put their best foot forward each day. Please note the information under each subject heading, will include what we are working on each week. It will also let you know when we will have quizzes, and tests. This information will also be on my weekly newsletter. I will also include websites that will hopefully, prove helpful to review and work on what we are covering. The interactive notebooks will also be valuable sources of information. 

The students will have agendas, that should contain the homework for each day. It will be the student’s responsibility to write the homework down each day.  I will  sign the agenda daily, to let you know I have seen the homework copied from the board. It will also be a great source of communication between home and school. I will be sending home a packet with papers that will need your signature. I would like the whole packet back, on Friday, September 5, 2014. If you need to talk to me, please don’t hesitate to call, write, come by, or send an e-mail, and I will do the same.  

Take care, and have a great week!

A. Winters
