Welcome to the 5th Grade
"Believe You Can Achieve"
Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to Mr. Hernandez’s 5th grade class! I hope you all are enjoying your summer vacation. As many of you know, this will be my ninth year at the Quogue Elementary School and I cannot wait to get started. I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to teach in such an amazing school and look forward to working with you and your child.
This year instruction will be aligned with the Common Core Curriculum as we strive to have each student “college and career ready.” I plan to implement a balanced literacy approach incorporating both appropriately leveled fiction and non fiction texts. Furthermore, instruction will be differentiated in order to meet the learning styles of all our 5th grade students.
In Math, we will be investigating such topics as place value, decimals, fractions, order of operations, graphing and more. It is my goal to teach all concepts and skills creatively making sure every student has the opportunity to succeed. In Social Studies, we will cover the Constitution and various topics regarding the Western Hemisphere, and in Science, we will explore the structure and properties of matter, plant and animal needs, as well as, matter in ecosystems.
On the sidebar of our class site is a list of supplies you will need to start the school year. Please bring all the items in during the first week of school so we can get organized.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
