I graduated from Sam Houston State University in 2007, with a degree in Education 4th grade through 8th grade. I have always been called to the intermediate/ Jr. High level. This year is my 12th year of teaching, and my 10th year in 5th grade science/ Social Studies.
When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Jordan, and our daughters, Charlotte, and Cora. Our oldest starts second grade this year! Playing with both girls takes up most of my days at home, however when I do find that extra minute of free time enjoy refinishing antique furniture.
Nothing less than your highest and best!
Start of second nine weeks
We have made it to the 2nd nine weeks! Here are a few things we are working on in class:
Electrical and Sound energy- We are working on understanding the flow of an electric current, the differences between open and closed circuits circuits, and how to read complex circuits. We will also start talking about energy transformations, using sound, light, and mechanical energy. Our Electrical and Sound test will be on Wednesday, October 23rd. All study materials can be found on our google classroom, and in the science INB.
At the end of this week in social studies we will be starting our unit on Colonial Williamsburg. The kids LOVE this unit... and so do I! At the end of this unit students should be able to have a lengthy conversation about what life was like for the early colonists of America.
Students will be coming home with our new set of states and capitals for this nine weeks. This test will cover the states and capitals of the Midwest. There will be review games, and songs on our google classroom soon. The final time we will take this test is November 20th. We will have a couple of practices before the final test on November 20th. If students make a 100 on either of the practice tests, they will not need to take any of the states and capitals tests for this nine weeks.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
