    What are we learning!!!!! 

    Reading -  We are currently working in the nonfiction text unit.  We will learn about text structures in nonfiction writing.  We will also learn about the main idea, how to use context clues for word meaning, and author's purpose.  Finally, we will work on summarizing nonfiction texts.

    Math - We are working multiplication strategies and division strategies with whole numbers.  We will also work on solving word problems with multiplication and division.  We will then move on to order of operations and expressions.  We will finish this unit learning how to find the volume of rectangular prisms.

    Science -  Our first science unit is called Living Organisms.  We will learn that organisms can be either unicellular or multicellular organisms.  We will also learn the purpose and parts of the skeletal system, muscular system, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, circulatory system, digestive system, and nervous system.  We will end this unit learning how these systems work with other body systems to help the organism stay alive.  Our second unit is genetics.  We will learn about inherited traits and learned traits in humans, animals, and plants. 

    Social Studies - The first social studies unit is Pre-colonial era and colonization.  We will learn about the 13 colonies and the impact that the colonists had on the shaping of the United States.



    Some of the Responsibilities of 5th graders are:
    1. Independence - We will earn that 5th graders are responsible for coming to class prepared, staying on task at school, and going home prepared.
    2. Organization - Students will learn that organization influences independence and success.  Students will use their agenda to help them be prepared for school.
    3. Nightly Homework - Students will have nightly homework.  They will need to study his/her math and science notebook and read.  
    4. Study - We will also promote studying. (Reading through his/her math notebook and science notebook nightly).  This skill is important to instill for success in middle school, high school, and college.

Mrs. Taylor

This is my 17th year teaching in Cabarrus County.  I taught at Winecoff for 9 years.  I taught first grade for 7 years, second grade for 1 year, 3rd grade for 3 years, 5th grade for 5 years. This year, I am excited to be teaching fifth grade again!  I am from Concord, born and raised. I graduated from Concord High School, attended Appalachian State University and I earned my National Board Teaching License in 2010, and renewed my National Board License in 2019.  I have a wonderful husband and 2 kids, a son, who is in sixth grade at Northwest Cabarrus Middle School and a daughter, who is in fourth grade at Boger.  
Teaching is my passion and I am excited to see your children grow and learn academically and socially!  I am also excited to learn from them!
