Welcome to Bennett's 4th and 5th grade combination class! Over the next week I will be adding information including schedules and announcements pertaining to the first weeks of school. Tentative schedules for 4th and 5th grade are posted to the right and are subject to change.
4th graders will be learning all of their academic content in Room 279 with Mr. Hood. 5th graders will get their reading and math instruction in Room 279 with Mr. Hood, and will be pushing into a fifth grade classroom for Science, Social Studies and Writing instruction. 5th grade will be departmentalized this year so all fifth graders at Bennett will be traveling to different teachers by subject area.
Our class will eat lunch together when other 4th and 5th grade classes are in the cafeteria, and recess times will be flexible to allow 4th and 5th graders opportunities to see friends in other classes.
A 4th and 5th grade combination class offers excellent opportunities for differentiated instruction and hands-on learning. Each child will be working at his/her instructional level with opportunities for extension and remediation while we are together in Room 279.
The keys to success in our class are flexibility, communication and engagement. Open house will be on Thursday, August 25th from 1:00-3:00. I encourage all families to come by, say hello and see their classroom. In the meantime, please use the "Contact Me" feature on this page if you have any questions or comments!
