Class of 2018 - 2019 ____________________________________________

Welcome Class of 2025 to your 5th grade assigned classroom. I am Mr. Thorn. I will be your teacher for this year, and I am VERY excited to get to know you. This summer has gone by very quickly, but I hope each and every one of you has taken the opportunity to read and learn more about the world you live in.

This year we will be focusing our learning on how this great nation we live in has come about(social studies), our world and how it has come to be shaped the way it is, as well as some of the natural phenomenon that occur on it (science). In math we will be looking at Multiplication and division of whole numbers, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimals and fractions, as well as graphing, geometry, and measurement. Finally, in reading and writing, we will be working on reading and creating text that are narrative, non-fiction, opinion, and persuasive in format.

Some of the things that you may want to do to get ready for the upcoming school year are to start preparing yourself mentally and physically to get up earlier, make sure that you have a good breakfast every morning, and that you get plenty of rest each night. These things will make the transition back to your school schedule even easier.

Again, I look forward to getting to know each of you and your families. I plan on maintaining close communication with your parents, so be aware of that as you make your daily choices once school begins. I plan on making this my best year of teaching ever. I hope you plan on making this your best year of learning ever.

Sincerely,

Mr. Thorn
