(Great website to review, learn, and play) 

For the next week we will continue to review material that has already been taught. For science we have covered all objectives. So you can review everything from all year long. Review and “clean up” your science notebook, review at, and Jefferson lab. If we were in school, I would begin reviewing 4th grade objectives for the science SOL. You could also review those objectives on SOL pass.
For Social Studies, we started the West Region, with notes on March 13. For this year we still need to finish the West, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean Islands and CentralAmerica. 
 Try this website for States and capitals.

Try Learn at home 3-5.
Lots of interesting articles and activities.Let me know what you think.

For science, yesterday I asked you to go on a scavenger hunt to find items that were transparent, translucent, opaque, reflective, and refractive. 
How did that go? I found lots of opaque items, very few translucent.
Today 3/24/2020 go to SOL pass and play some of the sound and light games, if you are up for the challenge, take the quiz and let me know how you did.

   Hello and welcome to 5th grade and my classroom!

A Little About Myself

This is my 17th year teaching in PWCS.

I went to Radford University and have a BS in Chemistry. After college I went into the Army and served 11 years. I met my husband of 34 years while in the Army. We have 3 grown sons, 3 dogs and 1 cat.

My Goals for the Year.

It is my desire that all students develop a love of learning about the world we live in and to feel safe enough to stretch themselves physically, emotionally and academically, so to reach their full potential.
