Good Morning Grade 5

I can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow.

Welcome to Mrs. Pecora’s Science class! There are three very important things I would like you all to remember throughout the school year:

You are capable of doing anything

You are important as a learner

Struggling is sometimes a part of learning

I am honored to have you in my science class and I am looking forward to working with you throughout the year. Science is a very interesting and engaging subject. It opens the door to new and exciting discoveries and helps us to better understand the world around us. This school year we will work on the following, while enjoying learning:

Developing a strong science vocabulary

Applying math to problem solving

Utilizing technology to learn more about science

Developing critical thinking skills

Making connections between science and the world around us
