Upper

5th & 6th Grades

The Upper Class is settling into their new classroom on the mountain. There are twenty two students in grades five and six who are eager to do their best work. My name is Paula Regan and I am starting my 24th year as a teacher with the school. I am thrilled that my students have a new facility for their education. Shana Celli joins us as a teacher assistant and is excited to be a part of our new chapter at HGMICS.

Each student will have the use of a laptop for research, typing reports, and many other educational activities. We will be studying Ancient civilizations so get ready for mummies,gladiators and Greek architecture. The first month will include the Upper Class version of the Survivor Game as we hunt for limited amounts of food. (No, we won’t go bear hunting even though there has been a sighting.)

We will be enjoying our outdoors location through the Fall season and using it for our descriptive writing and poetry lessons. We will also work on maps ,directions, and landforms as we explore our new surroundings.

In Math class a new topic that we will be studying is exponents. Students will also work with a fraction calculator. I hope that every student can begin to see that math is all around them everyday.

We will keep you posted on upcoming projects and events. Looking forward to a great school year!
