Mrs. Laurie Arentz

Welcome to 5th Grade  


Welcome to our 5th grade classroom.  Each day we work hard together creating a friendly, learning environment where everyone can succeed and achieve.  Each child will become an active part of his/her learning community.  Together the children learn and grow from each other.  They will take responsibility for their own learning as they develop a continued sense of pride and ownership in our classroom. My goal is to create an environment where the children feel comfortable, secure and accepted by his/her peers while making gainful academic achievement.

     Fifth grade is a busy place to be.  The children are working hard on new reading comprehension skills, vocabulary development and fluency.  We will explore various genres as we delve deep into the common core reading standards.  Good readers think...and we will practice our thinking while we read.  We will stretch our minds as we learn different problem solving skills in math.  Science, Social Studies and Health will extend our thinking even further as we learn landforms, enviroments, and mysterious powders.   Finally, the fifth graders will be putting a lot of thought into words as they reflect and create written responses to their learning experiences.  Each day we work hard to become independent, responsible learners. 

     This website is intended to keep parents current on classroom events.  Please stop by often and visit.  You will find our newsletter, important dates as well as photos, puzzles and a selection of blogs.

     We are going to have a great year!
