Grade 5 News-
Excellent job to all the students for a great job presenting at the learning fair! Students did an excellent job on their ecosystem science boards. Students realized the importance of keeping the ecosystem in balance and that both big and small changes can make a big difference.
Nonfiction has proved to be an area of great interest for students. They enjoyed reading a variety of texts and found the importance of note taking and determining main ideas. Keep reading at home and filling in your reading logs.
Wear your PJ’s Wednesday for a movie and popcorn.
Enjoy the winter break!
I hope everyone had a great summer with family and friends. More than anything I hope your son/daughter is looking forward for school to start. My name is Christy Nelson and I will be teaching your child this year in Grade 5. I am excited to meet all of the students and get to know them as individuals. I aim to provide your child with a safe, warm, and inviting environment in which to learn.
I am happy to be in Busan and a member of the BFS community. I grew up in Aurora, Illinois. I moved to the mountains and worked in Yellowstone National Park and then attended college in Bozeman, Montana where I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I also hold an endorsement in Special Education k-12 from MSU-Billings. I have taught Special Education on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation and have taught 4th grade at the American School of Kuwait prior to Busan.
This is my second year teaching at BFS. My husband Erik is teaching middle school Language Arts at BFS. My son and daughter, Mason and Elsie will be attending school at BFS. I am happy to be a part of the school community not only as a teacher but as a parent. My family loves spending time outdoors hiking and camping.
I look forward to working with you and your child this year. Please contact me for any reason at firstname.lastname@example.org
