Dear Parents.

 I am proud and excited to be teaching at Creekside Forest Elementary! I will be teaching 5th Grade Science this year. It is my goal to ensure that my students gain the most out of their education in my class. I'm looking forward to this year and getting to know each of you, and your children! I believe that by working together this year your child will experience great success. 

 

Everybody is waiting for the school to start, but at the same time many people are worried how things are going to be. I will teach Face-to-Face and Virtual classes. We will be learning together new aspects of the classroom management and the instructional strategies due to the virus situation. We might have some bumps on the road , but we will get the students where they need to be academically and emotionally.

 

The first days of the school year are very important. Please feel free to contact me to let me know your thoughts, suggestions, or concerns. I value your opinion and would like to have a strong partnership with you as parents in order to help this year to be the most successful year for your child.

I cannot wait to meet my students!

 

We will have a great year!

 

Thank you,

Victoria Hunsucker

Science Test on Wednesday, April 7th

Hello dear parents,
I plan on administering Unit 11 test in Science on Wednesday, April 7th.
Topic: Interactions in Ecosystems
  • Lining and nonliving things and examples of their interactions
  • Niches: producers, consumers, decomposers
  • Types of consumers: herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores
  • Energy flow in a food chain ( transforming or obtaining energy)
  • Energy flow in a food web ( transforming or obtaining energy)
  • Examples of prey-predictor relationship
To review, I recommend the digital notebook pages 112 and up.
We also will do a small review tomorrow, that could be a useful tool to study as well.
 
Thank you for your support at home,
Stay safe,
Victoria Hunsucker

Science Unit 9 test Review Guide

Hello my dear parents,
I hope you and your family are doing ok this week.
As we are returning to a regular routine with the school week, I would like to provide you with a study guide for the next Science test.
This Unit 9 includes several concepts: Earth patterns, Solar System, and the Water cycle.
We have been studying the Earth patterns and the Solar system in class. This week, we will revisit the Water cycle part which it is not a new concept to a 5th grader. On Thursday, we will do a class review for this test as well.
If you would like to check your child's understanding or help your child with studying or reviewing the concept for this test, I am providing this link for you now.
 I also have included a student copy of the key questions without answers: slides:16-21
The test will take place on Friday.
If you have any questions for me, please let me know.
 
Have a great day!
 
Mrs. Hunsucker
