Welcome to Mrs. Stokes 5th Grade Math & Social Studies class!
I am very excited to begin my 21st year of teaching with the students of Lamar-Milledge Elementary School. My personal mission is for all students to achieve maximum growth and demonstrate proficiency or beyond when they take the Georgia Milestones Assessment. Developing problem solving skills, computational skills, and the ability to communicate mathematical concepts will be the major areas of focus this school term. In Social Studies, students will explore U.S. History from Industrialization to the Digital Age. Students will be expected to name important places located in the U.S, identify the role of a citizen and of government, recall various historical events, and be able describe the impact of basic economics upon the United States.
We will are going to use a variety of instructional strategies to meet the needs of your student. I want my students to recognize and celebrate their strengths, as well as confront and address their learning gaps, if any. This class will embrace the "growth mindset" approach in regards to teaching and learning. We may struggle, but we will also succeed. Every assignment, activity, and assessment correlates to a specific set of standards. With this standards-focused approach, each student is expected to demonstrate continued growth during this school term. I thank you in advance for your support and committment to your student, and his or her academic development 2018-2019.
