Mrs. Wager's Fifth Grade Classroom



Blessed Are the Merciful

...

As the Lord has forgiven you, so you must also forgive.  Colossians 3:13

I was hungry and you gave me food. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. Matthew 25:35

 

St. Joan of Arc is continuing to celebrate its 50th Anniversary of proclaiming God’s blessings as we continue God’s work. Christ is our model of showing us how to apply God’s Word in Scriptures to our daily life. We are called by God to spread the Gospel’s message. God opens doors for us, and he gives us opportunities to grow in His love and do His work.

Welcome to 5A!  Fifth graders are growing in their learning and  developing their relationships. We are called to be merciful and practice “Blessed Are the Merciful”.  Our students learn brain based strategies. As a team we work on our strengths and manage areas we need to improve upon. Teaching respect and learning good communication skills helps us foster our friendships and relationships with others. Our brain-compatible strategies in Math reinforce important life skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and using decimals.  The students use the Promethean Boards, dry erase boards, games, calculators, etc.  to learn these skills. Fifth grade focuses on the states and regions of the United States in Social Studies. We explore the different regions. Students learn about the diversity and awesome creations of God’s world.
