A great deal of what we do in fifth grade will be done online. Although we have limited access to Chromebooks that are provided through the district, many students prefer the option of brining their own personal devices each day. It is our understanding that the middle and high schools use technology extensively as well. This year is a good opportunity to jump-start the use of technology to empower education.
At our beginning of the year class meetings, we will explain the 5th grade behavior expectations to the students. Our philosophy can be summed up in one word: RESPECT. We expect students in our rooms to respect themselves, other students, the learning process, their school, and any adult they come in contact with throughout their school day.
