Teacher Julie Smith - Fifth Grade  (Send e-mail)

Welcome to my fifth grade webpage!

It's hard to believe that the end of the school year is upon us. The end of the year activities were a lot of fun. I will truly miss my fifth graders as they move on to Hickory Creek Middle School. I enjoyed working with and getting to know each of your children. I am confident that they are well prepared and will be successful in their final years in this district.

Thank you, parents, for supporting your child's education.

Have a wonderful summer!

How many books do you think you can read this summer? Set a reasonable goal and make a poster to track your progress. Books will stimulate your imagination, instill knowledge, inspire empathy and bring joy! Don't hesitate, sign up for the reading programs at our Frankfort Public Library. There are reading book lists for every age and by grade level. The fun begins on June 4th. Sign up at for chances to win prizes! A Frankfort Library card is required.

Zearn math accounts have been created for each student. Every student has been given a username and password. It should be attached to their homework agenda cover. We work on Zearn to build a stronger conceptual understanding of the math objectives. Students need to know more than just how to solve a problem. We are working towards being able to go deeper and understand why it works. Therefore, please encourage and support taking the time to work on Zearn at home too. Our class code is HH4X8F.


WRITING: Informational Writing (Artisan Report) and Memoir Writing

Is reading part of your family's daily routine?

Reading is the most important skill because it is the basis for learning throughout the school day.

Reading takes practice.

Make reading a part of your family's daily routine.

*Read every night with your child or along side your child.
*Ask your child to occasionally read aloud and listen to how they're able to read with fluency-expression, accuracy, rate, phrasing, and punctuation.
*We will be working on reading more fluently in the classroom with weekly goals. What will be your child's goal this week?

"The habits we form from childhood make no small difference, but rather they make all the difference." -Aristotle

*Our fifth grade homework expectation of students is to read a minimum of 80 minutes per week. The students are working on weekly reading goals. Can you exceed the expectation?
