Welcome to fifth grade.  My name is Ms. Jill Waskom.  This is my nineteenth year at Jackson Elementary, fifteen of which were spent teaching kindergarten and this being the fourth year as a fifth grade teacher.  I have two beautiful daughter Mackenzie who is 11 years old and a sixth grader at Immanuel Lutheran and Morgan who is 10 years old and a fifth grader at Immanuel Lutheran.  I am looking forward to teaching your child and learning/growing with them.  
I will make every effort to update these pages each week (and occasionally post homework each night...however, please check your child's agenda each night for homework assignments).  **Please note the different pages (tabs at the top) for general information, classroom happenings, and homework.  Each one of these tabs displays different information.  Students write their daily assignments in their agendas.  Please initial agendas each night, and ask your child about his/her school day:  classwork, recess, special classes, their friends, etc.

Classroom Information
We'll have a new reading series this year.  We will be using that along with novels throughout the year.
We'll have  words that go with our reading story each week.  We'll work with words in class daily.  Generally, we'll have a practice test each Thursday.  If students earn 100%, they will not have to re-test on Friday.
Students will have daily assignments out of our math book.  They will also have a practice book to work in.  
Per corporation direction, we are to teach Science for two weeks each grading period. This is a minimum requirement that every elementary teacher in our corporation will be doing every grading period.  As time allows, I will try to tie Science in to some of our other subject areas as much as possible.
Social Studies
We have a textbook we will use. We'll cover the chapters in order.  I'll try to do a variety of hands-on activities to help students learn and understand the material. 
We will have a Language Handbook and Writer's Express Textbook that we'll use as a guide for assignments in the classroom.  There will also be some worksheets to practice skills learned.  Some of the English grades will come from writing assignments done in class.
Extra Information
Students will fill out their agendas daily.  Please check them nightly and initial them so I know you're aware of what we're doing.  Also, I use the agenda to write notes to parents if needed.  Please do the same.  If you need to contact me, send a note,  write a note in the agenda, call school (522-5709), or email (waskomj@scsc.k12.in.us).  Please note, sometimes I cannot check my email until students have left for the day.  You can also call me at home in the evening OR text me.  Please leave a message (I don't always answer right away if I am busy running my daughters places and/or helping them with their homework in the evenings) and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.  Home/Cell phone- 521-4933.

*****Please use the tabs at the top of this page to look at topics being covered in each subject weekly and for weekly homework assignments!!! The three "sub" tabs are located on the tab labeled pages at the top.
