1 week until Christmas break! 

Parents, thank you so much for your support during benchmark testing! The students' growth was fantastic! I am so excited to see how much they grow by the end of the year. I will conduct data meetings with each student after the break to let them know how they did as well as make personal goals for the remainder of the year. Please be sure and talk with your child about continuing to do their best and showing their best effort. Also, talk with them about their personal growth goals and what we're doing in class to make sure we're meeting them! We can't do it without you!!! 

The students are so excited about our Christmas Around the World unit we will continue next week! They have really been enjoying comparing and contrasting our holiday traditions with other cultures around the world. We will also be continuing to read our novel study, Esperanza Rising. 

Our Christmas party will be next Friday on the 60% day. We will be having a Christmas pajama party. Please check Class Dojo to see what your child is signed up to bring.

Hello! I am Taylor Fears and am so thrilled to be teaching 5th grade ELA here at Bentonia Gibbs! I have a passion for instilling the love of reading to young minds! I graduated from MSU with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and have recently completed my Masters in Reading Education. I am currently pursuing my Ed.S. in Educational Leadership. I live with my husband and our Golden Retriever fur baby, Moose. In my free time I enjoy reading, hanging out with my friends and family, and shopping!
