WELCOME to Mrs. Hagedorn's ClassWelcome to your Fifth Grade Reading class. I have been in the district since 1986 and yes, I'm old. I have a great job and love teaching. I'm very fortunate for many reasons but in the teaching area I'm fortunate to have been able to create a classroom to encourage reading and to have so many materials to use to tap into your child's interests. I will be using a Reading Workshop Model. Students will actually have time each day to practice skills that are taught with self-selected novels. Time will be given in each class for students to actually read from their books incorporating skills that have been previously taught. I will be challenging each student to read 30 books this year.
