Hello all! This year will be my first year teaching, and I will be teaching fifth grade! I'm sure I will be visiting these boards frequently for advice and ideas, but I wanted to know (from all of you fifth grade teaching veterans) if you have any particular tips for fifth graders? Any special things your kids love, or anything that you have found to be unique to this age group? I'm really excited, because I know that fifth grade is a very special year for the kids. I am working on putting my classroom together and any help/tips would be greatly appreciated!
