    I was offered a 5th grade position in my dream district yesterday, but I'm scared to take it because I like the younger kids. However, I'm still seriously considering it, and using this weekend to try to learn more about the grade. My experience in 5th is very limited. I'm especially interested in the Math curriculum.

    Does anyone have a website (from their classroom) they'd like to share? The 5th grade web pages at the school where I was offered a job aren't very good - they're all under construction and whatnot.

    Thanks, everyone.

    Thank you for all these links to websites. I plan to spend more time on them this summer! MsJasztal's (one of our members)website is wonderful, and this is the first that I've heard of Mrs. Uppman's site. Wow. Love the videos of reader's workshop.

    Take the job!

    Fifth graders are great, I spent 10 years teaching them. Their bodies are bigger than 2nd graders but they're still babies!

    Love To Teach, this year was a real challenge, but the kids came a long way. Underneath all the ADD and LDs they were very sweet. Next year, I'm back to 5th grade (same room) where I'll probably stay.

    Well, I'm not teaching fifth anymore.. but here is my site. I don't know when the district will get wise and take it down....

    http://www.aesd.edu/to/nutting/

    Here's my new site that I'm working on. It will have links to my old fifth grade site and my substitute site that I was working on.

    Peachyness - I LOVE your old website! I've taught 5th grade for a year now, after teaching 2nd for many years, and I loved it. I struggled,however, to think of ways to manage my classroom, and you have some wonderful ideas. If it's ok with you, I'd love to adopt some of your ideas. I feel very motivated (even though it's the beginning of summer and the tough school year is over!) to start planning for next year. Thanks for sharing!:D

    Go ahead and borrow! I mean, 99% are ideas I got from somewhere else. That's what teaching is all about!
