Welcome to 5th Grade Science on the Pioneer's Team!
My name is Ms. Mallett! I am very excited to have been given this opportunity to teach the 5th grade on the Pioneer's team!! I am very motivated to start off the school year with some new faces. My office hours will be on Thursday from 2:30-3:45pm (students will need to add their names to a sign up sheet each week). I cannot wait to teach the 5th graders on the Pioneer's team!! We are in for an exciting school year!
I am using a program called ClassDojo to assess student performance for each school day! Parent invites have been sent out and I am having the students set up their ClassDojo accounts during class. This program allows students to post any science experiments that they have completed, share interesting information, and stay up to date with current events that fit into our current unit in science. https://www.classdojo.com/ (ClassDojo link)
I will also be using Google Classroom for assignments, homework, study guides, do now/agendas for each day, and other communication related to what is going on in class. https://classroom.google.com (Google Classroom link)
Please feel free to reach out with any questions! Thank you!!!
Beginning of the school year:
We will begin our school year by finding out more about each and every student in the classroom by completing an about me activity and illustrating identity sneakers. In homeroom we will be familiarizing students with using their lockers as well as practicing fire drill procedures. We will also spend time reviewing our school wide expectations of:
Classrooms will discuss what these expectations look and sound like throughout our day. We will spend time throughout the year learning and practicing these expectations to ensure that each student comes to school to learn, be safe, and to have fun.
