Ms. Newman's 5th grade Science Class

Dear Parents/Guardians,

      For this 2016-2017 school year, I will be your child's 5th grade science teacher and I look forward to working with you and your children. My teaching philosophy is having a welcoming atmosphere for students to feel confident and comfortable enough to succeed, each student is unique and my goal is to help students reach their full potential.

      Within our class, we will work hands on with different experiments working in collaborative groups. From the first day where we created "oobleck" to discuss how our lab experiments are conducted to learning our scientific method through song, we will be experiencing science through multiple strategies. We will cover topics through FOSS instruction such as Mixtures and Solutions to Weather On Earth.
