Mrs. Piekarczyk – 5th Grade
Social Studies Office Hours: Gr 4-6, Monday 7:45AM – 8:10AM
Welcome back! I hope everyone enjoyed the long summer vacation and is well rested and ready to start fifth grade! I am looking forward to seeing many familiar faces and meeting new students.
Our first month of school will include reviewing skills, routines, and procedures. We will focus on:
Religion- We have a new book this year. We begin lessons 1 and 2 focusing on How do we know God? and Who is God?
Reading- The first unit focuses on journeys and how they change us. We will read a variety of texts.
Spelling and Vocabulary- We continue with the Vocabulary Workshop textbook and the focus on spelling and the meaning of words. We will also study synonyms and antonyms.
Social Studies- The focus this year is on United States history. We begin with the early Spanish colonies. We will also continue our study of the many different skills needed to study history.
Please remember that all hardcover books are to be covered and soft covered books need to be covered with clear contact paper.
My office hours will be posted shortly.
I am looking forward to seeing you all and having a great year!
