Ms. Lindsey Williams
Hi, my name is Lindsey Williams. I am 26 years old and was born and raised in a small town right outside of Dallas, Texas called Waxahachie, Texas. I played soccer for 17 years and came to Troy to continue my career. I graduated from Troy University in December of 2017 with an Elementary Education Degree. This will be my second year teaching and I'm very excited to be apart of the Troy Elementary family. I know we will have a great year and am very excited to get down to business.
We are writing a letter to give some ideas for how we can work together to make sure your child still has academic activities over the long break from school. While none of the work we send home is required or for a grade, it is highly encouraged so that your student does not fall behind. Our advice is to set aside at least an hour a day to focus on academics. Your child can split their time between math for thirty minutes and reading for thirty minutes. Below you will find a bulleted list of activities your child will have available to him/her.
- Math practice problems numbers 1-19
- Math pages in Investigations book (purple and orange) Unit 2 pages 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 10, 11, 15, 19A, 19B, 19C, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 36B
- IXL.com - 5th grade - AA, BB, DD, EE
- Practice math facts
- Read story, “Austin’s Amazing Bats” on page 324-336
- Workbook pages 385-394
- Study guide for “Austin’s Amazing Bats”
- Grammar/spelling worksheets
- If you have access, check google classroom. I will post fresh reads and discussion questions on google classroom.
- Look for quizizz.com links on google classroom
- Read AR or utilize Overdrive (look for letter in folder)
I want to reiterate that this work will not be required. These are only suggestions to keep your students active in their academics.
