Donnelly, Janet

Welcome to Ms. Donnelly's 5th Grade Class!



One step outside and it is obvious that Fall has arrived.  There is a chill in the air and the leaves have begun to change colors.  One look around our classroom and it is also obvious that we are deep into the school year.  The students and I have settled into our classroom routine.


Literacy This time brings an action packed time with our Writer’s Workshop.  In the Workshop setting, we will be using the routines we established in September and will be delving into Narrative Writing.   In the skill blocks, we will be completing “Word Work “activities, learning about character traits in writing, narrative elements, transition words and conjunctions.  Students will be doing shared reading in their Book Clubs.


Social Studies – The first part of our journey in Social Studies will take us into the Constitution.  We will then focus on Geography with emphasis on how Climate and Landforms impact economy, industry and lifestyles.
