Ms. Campbell

Hello! My name is...

Ms. Campbell

Welcome to my 5th Grade Classroom

I am very excited to be your child's 5th grade teacher at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School. I have lived in the Concord/Kannapolis area my whole life and am excited to be  a part of the Wonder Family!


Educational Background:
I I graduated in May of 2014 from Queens University of Charlotte and am currently enrolled in the Elementary Education graduate program at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. 

My Vision:
"The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create the possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create men and women who are capable of doing new things."

-Jean Piaget

I believe that every child can create and invent, to discover and do new things. I encourage all of my students to try new and different approaches to solve problems. I am fostering learning for future scientist, engineers, authors, police officers, firemen, veterinarians, chefs, artist, and many other occupations.

What We Are Doing:

E.L.A:
We are moving into Unit 3 titled “Consider the View”.  This unit focuses on the idea that authors organize elements that interact and fit together within the text as well as the understanding that it is important to identify, share, and listen to multiple points of view (UbD-KCS). We are still working on the Novel Study, Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt.  With each unit there are some essential questions your child should be able to answer are:

·         What draws you to a particular text/series?

·         What keeps you from reading different types of text?

·         How do people, ideas, and events interact within a text?

·         How can people view the same situation differently?

·         How is an author able to challenge your perspective or point of view?

·         What makes for a strong argument?

·         Why does what word I choose matter?

 

 

Math:

We are currently in the middle of our study of fractions. We are learning how to add, subtract fractions with uncommon denominators, reviewing, and preparing for our second Check-In. Some essential questions that you can ask your child by the end of this unit are:

  • In what ways can we model equivalent fractions?
  • How can benchmark fractions be helpful?
  • What strategies can you use to add and subtract fractions?

 

 

Science:

We are learning about weather. Throughout this unit, your child will be able to observe weather conditions and analyze a weather map to make predictions about local and global weather (UbD-KCS).  Some essential questions that will guide us through the unit are:

  • How does weather change over a period of time?
  • What are ways that data can be collected to predict the upcoming weather?
  • How do we find patterns in weather and use them to predict events?

 

Watch the weather with your child daily so that they can analyze weather maps and observe different weather conditions.

 

 

Social Studies:

We are in Unit 3, which focuses on Colonization and The Revolutionary War. We are learning how the movement of people, goods, and ideas affected the culture of a region, how life in colonial times was different from today, how economic factors can cause conflict within and between countries, and how to analyze historical events from multiple perspectives.
