I am thrilled to be teaching 5th grade again at Shive Elementary and I am especially excited to meet each of you! You are at last, "the BIG kids" at school. I have very high expectations for you academically, behaviorally, and personally, and will work with you to help you "bee" the very best you can "bee!" Always remember to:
"BEE-lieve in yourself… 'cause it's never too late to fly!"

What's going on in Mrs. Rosenbaum's class?
Theme: Change? Whether or not?
We are so excited about the Common Core because it encourages us to integrate all content areas into the "reading" part of the day. Know that your child will read a variety of texts, including narrative and expository, as he/she works toward applying various reading skills learned during class. In writing, we are working on writing narratives as well as other integrated writing assignments within other subject areas. I am also excited to be doing CAFE in our classroom this year. This is an individualized approach to reading which targets that areas of comprehension, accuracy, fluency, and expanding vocabulary. Please ask your child what he/she is working on and practice their strategy with them at home. Please understand that I meet with your child individually and on a regular basis to look for evidence of improvement in the the area of reading.
Place Value (Hundred Thousands through Hundred ThousandTHS), Different forms of numbers, Finding numbers (including decimals) on a number line, Rounding all numbers
