Teaching Philosophy

The role of the teacher is to guide students, inspire them to know more, and to be proud of all they achieve. Teachers have the added responsibility of modeling and encouraging behaviours that will help students grow and develop into kind, respectful, hard-working individuals who are confident and happy.

Grade 5 Highlights (English)

English Language:  We complete 3 novel studies, including fun graphic novels, a fictional art-mystery novel, and the amazing autobiography, I am Malala, by Malala Yousafzai. We interview our classmates and write their biographies, create and present creative book reports, and publish strong opinion pieces of writing.

Math: We build confidence in our basic facts, construct triangles given angle and side measurements, learn about data management and financial literacy, explore computer science fundamentals in the exciting world of coding, and more.

Science: We demonstrate an understanding of the human skeletal, muscular, and digestive systems. We learn about various forms and sources of renewable energy, and the ways this energy can be transformed and conserved.

Social Studies: We examine Canadian Citizenship and the Canadian Government. We visit Waterloo City Hall and visit with the Mayor, and we even write a letter to the Prime Minister!

Art: We learn about different artists and their visual art style that inspire us to create our own pieces. We also complete “The Grade 5 Sketchbook Project” with weekly sketch assignments that apply various elements of art.

Character Education: Learning beyond the textbooks is important to Ms. Weber. Through daily learning intentions, we are reminded to be kind, take care of ourselves and others, and practice different strategies to keep us happy and healthy inside and outside of the classroom!
