5th Grade Here I Come!

     After 10 years of teaching 4th grade, I found out on Monday that I will begin this school year as the 5th grade ELA teacher. I have lots of mixed emotions about the change. I am going to surely miss working closely with my 4th grade team, although we will still have the same lunch and planning. I am nervous about changing curriculums. I spent a lot of time the last two years studying the new 4th grade CCSS and now I will have to learn a new one. Ahhh! I am excited about looping and having most of the same kids I taught last year. I feel like I will be able to jump right in and get things going where we left off. Plus most of them know my expectations and routine and will be able to assist the new students.

I will now teach 5th grade Reading & Writing to 3 different classes, which means my first day of school plans have changed slightly from my last post that you can read here. My plans will obviously be much shorter.

I am looking forward to the change and especially the looks on my former students' faces when they see I will be their reading teacher again!

Pictures to come soon of my new classroom! 



  1. Good luck on this next adventure!! So exciting!

  2. 5th Grade is the BEST grade! You are going to LOVE having the same students!!! I bet they are absolutely going to FLIP!
    Rockin' and Lovin' Learnin'

  3. I was switched from 5th to 4th!:)
