Hello Wildcats!  I am Mrs. Harris, and I am excited to be teaching 5th Grade at MAC again this year!  This is my twenty-sixth year teaching and my seventeenth year as a McKeel teacher.  I graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in Elementary Education.  I am certified to educate students in grades 1-6 and have my ESOL and Reading Endorsements.  I strive to help my students reach their full potential to become life-long learners through inquiry-based lessons in Social Studies and Writing.  I am looking forward to a great year!

Writing 

I will spend the beginning of the year getting to know my students as writers.  Students will be learning how to respond to questions with complete sentences using text evidence and support.

*Please see Canvas for specific activities we are completing this week!


Social Studies 

We will begin the school year with a Geography Unit! Students will be learning about using maps and how to locate places using latitude and longitude.  We will also explore a variety of physical features of the United States and how latitude, geography, and physical features affect how and where people live.

Digital Citizenship & Goals 

Students will learn how to become positive Digital Citizens this year!  They will learn the importance of using technology properly, expectations of using iPads in the classroom, how to be responsible with technology, and how to use digital information fairly. These skills will be taught in the homeroom classrooms at the beginning of the year, and continued throughout the year as needed.
