Welcome to 5th Grade in Room 18!
Hello, my name is Ms. Theresa Chrobok and I teach 5th-grade science, social studies, reading, and spelling. This year I will be teaching science and social studies to Ms. Wilczynski's class, Mrs. Pellegrini/Mrs. Guerriero's class and my class.
I am very excited to teach our interactive science program from FOSS. What makes this program so unique is that it has so many online resources to manage remote and virtual options. Also, it believes science is about "doing" and "discovering". We are all scientists learning new and exciting things in the science world, so we do experiments and hands-on activities every week. We use a reference book for each of the three units to reinforce the concepts and big ideas, much like an encyclopedia or non-fiction book.
I also teach my homeroom reading and spelling. We have a new reading program this year from Teacher's College that I think makes reading even more enjoyable. We will read realistic fiction, fantasy, non-fiction, historical fiction, and many more genres. I will also share entertaining read alouds with my homeroom to get excited about reading!
I look forward to working with all of you this year. It's going to be a year filled with new friends from new places as well as exciting 5th grade events!
Stay tuned 5th Graders in Ms. Chrobok's Class.
