Welcome to 5th Grade Math and Health!!!
I am honored to be teaching at Dubois Middle School. This is my sixteenth year teaching, my eighth year teaching at DMS, and my first year teaching 5th grade math and health.
We are excited to have our math program on www.pearsonrealize.com again this year. Students are able to access this program on the school issued iPad as well as a home computer. Once students log in, there are two main tabs that we use. The "Programs" tab has every lesson and example that is already in the workbook. It also provides other resources if needed such as interactive examples and some video examples. Any assignment can be found in the "Classes" tab. Once an assignment is submitted, students can look at the questions that were missed to see if they can find the mistakes. If they do not understand why it was missed, they need to ask for help.
Along with our Pearson math program, we will use IXL, and Google Classroom. If you are interested in seeing classroom information and checking your child's progress, ask your child to log in to his/her Google Classroom app, www.pearsonrealize.com, IXL.com, and Skyward (the online grade book).
Health is one of the rotation classes for 5th grade. Students will go everyday for nine weeks during the quarter they are scheduled. Once that nine weeks is over, they are finished with health for this school year. For health, we will do almost everything in class. There may be a couple of times they will need to finish something at home or ask questions at home to be able to complete something we are working on in class. When we finish an assignment or project, I encourage the students to take it home to discuss so parents/guardians are aware of what we are doing in class.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
