    Welcome to Mr. Blackburn's Class

       I am very excited about starting the year and getting to see some of you again and meeting others for the first time. Fifth grade will be a challenging, busy year! In math we will be doing many new challenging concepts that will require a lot of focus and effort. Science will be very important this year and you will be learning many new things through research, experiments, and other activities. Science will be much more involved than last year. Some of the most important skills you need to be sure you have mastered are your multiplication and division facts. They are very important for you to be successful in math this year. We will be going on some awesome field trips this year! In math, each nine weeks you will have a chance to earn a pizza party by knowing your facts quickly and correctly.
       Be sure you are using your agenda this year to keep your parents informed on everything that is going on in class. I will check it for signatures almost every day.
      I can't wait to get started. It's going to be an awesome year!!
    Mr. B.
