Fifth & Sixth Grade
Fish eyeballs and formaldehyde. Mmm mmm mm! Now that’s the scent of learning in action.
If you like hands-on learning—dissecting fish, making models of cellular structure, digging through owl pellets and reassembling skeletons, reading piles and piles of good books in the class reading challenges, our fifth and sixth grade is definitely for you.
No one’s ever accused Mrs. Linda Severs of being a slacker. And her kids keep up with her—this classroom is always hopping. They also get big-time into community service projects like making cards for our homeless neighbors and preparing dinners for them at a local church. They even learn sign language so they can take their sign language song ministry on the road.
Students in Mrs. Severs’ class consistently score higher on standardized tests and make big leaps from year to year, so we can prove on paper that they’re learning a lot. But the excitement they have for learning and the laughter you hear coming from the classroom speaks for itself.
