I have recently added two
new projects to Donors Choose. Please visit our classroom Donors
Choose page by clicking
projects are under $450, and they both have to do with reading. I
am looking to have binders funded in order to develop interactive
reading notebooks in my classroom this school year. This project
will allow my students to have one place to store all of their
classroom notes, chapter notes, vocabulary, and reading response
The second project is for
books for our guided reading program. These books will help me
teach small groups with a more varied reading selection. These
books will also be shared with the other fifth grade teachers on
my team. They will be used for years to come!
If you can donate (or even if
you can't), please visit our Donors Choose page by clicking

donation will help! Please be sure to check out other Donors
Choose projects as well.
Many things will be updated this summer. The
Science page will be updated as we are now using ISI Science Kits.
I am also going to be working on updating spelling lists, math,
class booklet, and the room tour. Check back in August for updates
to the classroom pictures and classroom videos.
A new webpage,
Classroom Pond, has been added to
Leaping Into 5th Grade! Students in my 5th grade classroom now
have a place to go to access all the links they will need to use
in the classroom and at home. We will be using several new
websites that I have researched and found online. One exciting
addition is the website Class Dojo! This website will help us keep
track of our behaviors in real-time! Students will be able to
access and keep track of their behavior weekly. Another neat
resource we will be using is Edmodo. This website is similar to
Facebook, but it is geared towards education. I will be handing
out classroom group codes at the beginning of the school year. Be
sure to check-out the new webpage.
