Welcome to The Fifth Grade

 

Students and Parents,

Welcome to the fifth grade!  

I'm excited to work with your child over this upcoming year!  A little bit more about myself for those of you I haven't have the chance to meet yet.  I'm currently entering my twelfth year of teaching elementary school.  I spent the first seven years teaching 4th and 5th grade in Woodford County, and I've been teaching fifth grade in Eminence, Kentucky for the past four.  I love reading (good) books, running, Red Sox baseball (I grew up just north of Boston, Massachusetts), running, and figuring out creative ways to incorporate technology into my instruction.  

I use this website as the central hub for the learning which goes on inside my classroom.  You can use the menus up the top of the page to find helpful links, games, and info for this school year.  I will be posting updates to this blog at least once a week, so check back often!  

If you ever have any questions, please don't hesitate to either email me (donnie.piercey@fayette.kyschools.us) or send me a note and I will get back with you as soon as I can.  

Thanks! 

Mr. Piercey

Some Social Studies Games for Today...

Students, 

I'm at home with the flu... yuck.  It's not fun.  For class today I've placed the link to eight different Social Studies games below.  I'd like you to spend class playing them all (about 5 minutes on each).  Then, at the end of class, (with 10 minutes left) write a short paragraph on lined paper explaining 2 to 3 things that you learned while playing them.
